Mercedes-Benz C-Class high on safety

Motorists looking for a vehicle that has achieved high safety ratings may wish to consider the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in the US has named the C-Class as one of its top safety picks for 2009 after it achieved high safety ratings in the all criteria in which it was judged.

In the latest assessments, the IIHS tested the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in front and side on crashes, while safety specialists ran out tests on neck injuries in rear impacts.
Top marks were awarded for the vehicle in all three categories, which has proved as conformation for the research the firm did in analysing real life accidents.
To help boost the safety of the vehicle, it is fitted with seven airbags, belt tensioners and crash-responsive head restraints, which are all fitted as standard.

Also, around 70 per cent of all of the body shell panels are made from steel alloys, which help to minimise weight and maximise safety.
A number of different engine sizes are also available for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class saloon including a C 230 V6 and C 180 KOMPRESSOR BlueEFFICIENCY four-cylinder.
