2014 Mercedes-Benz C Class Safety

9.0
On Safety

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class models are some of the safest, most secure vehicles available in the segment, with excellent crash-test ratings and even more active safety technologies. We commend Mercedes for including so much tech in their mass-market, most affordable vehicles, too.

The roster of safety features is solid: 13-way airbag protection via 11 airbags; active head restraints; adaptive brakes; stability and traction control; rain-sensing wipers; and even Attention Assist, which monitors the driver for alertness.

Active-safety features are the newest options on the C-Class, which earns solid crash-test ratings.

Optional safety extras include blind spot monitoring, rearview camera, parking guidance, adaptive high-beam headlights, and lane-keeping assist.

The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) gives it top marks of "good" in all crash-test categories; the federal government gives the 2014 C-Class a top overall five-star rating, with a five stars for side impacts, and four stars for frontal and rollover collisions.
