Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

6 year old child: 11.54 points

10 year old child: 7.76 points

In the frontal offset test, protection of both the 6 year and 10 year child dummy was good or adequate. However, in the side impact test, the head of the 10 year dummy contacted the metal frame of the folding roof and protection was rated as poor.

Pedestrian Summary

Adult & child head impacts: 21.00 points

Upper leg impacts: 0.80 points

Lower leg impacts: 6.00 points

AEB (VRU): 0.00 points

This vehicle scored 27.80 out of 42 points. The C-Class Cabriolet has an ‘active’ bonnet - sensors detect when a pedestrian has been struck and actuators raise the bonnet to provide greater clearance to the stiff structures in the engine compartment. Results were good at most test locations on the bonnet surface. Protection of the pelvis was predominantly poor. A pedestrian-detecting autonomous braking system is available on some variants but is not included in this
assessment as it is not standard. (Tested by Euro NCAP v8.3)
