Pedestrian Summary

Child & adult head impacts: 21.00 points
Upper leg impacts: 0.80 points
Lower leg impacts: 5.93 points

Nearly all of the tests performed on the bumper revealed a good level of protection being offered to pedestrians' legs. However, the front edge of the bonnet was poor in almost all tested areas and scored very few points. The C-Class has an 'active' bonnet for improved head protection. The system was tested in the deployed position and the results were good in almost all of the areas tested (v6.0).
