Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 6 year and 10 year dummies was ADEQUATE. Protection offered to all other critical body regions was GOOD.

In the side impact test, protection of all critical body areas was GOOD for both child dummies.

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that all of the selected child restraints could be accommodated in each of the rear seating positions and full points were scored for this assessment.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class provided GOOD or ADEQUATE protection to the head of a struck pedestrian over most of its surface, with some POOR results recorded on the stiff windscreen pillars and at the base of the windscreen. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians’ legs, with GOOD results at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with areas of GOOD and WEAK performance.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system showed GOOD performance in pedestrian test scenarios, in both daylight and low light. GOOD performance was also seen in cyclist test scenarios, with collisions avoided or mitigated in most scenarios. The system’s overall performance was classified as GOOD.
