SAFETY | 8 out of 10
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class hasn't yet been crash tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), but it is built with safety in mind from the ground up.
In addition to its suite of advanced safety systems and optional driver assistance extras, the 2015 C-Class features a unibody structure built from roughly half aluminum and half steel, much of the latter being high-strength steel. Attention paid to crumple zones to maximize energy absorption without intruding on the passenger compartment or key mechanical areas of the car, including the gas tank, should prove assets once the new C-Class is crash-tested.
While it hasn't been crash tested, the 2015 C-Class's advanced structure and high-tech safety equipment should make it a safe sedan.
