    The anticipatory protection system PRE-SAFE® is available as an option for the C-Class. As such, the new Mercedes Saloon is the only car in the world in its class with this leading-edge safety technology.

    PRE-SAFE® is networked with state-of-the-art safety systems such as ESP® and Brake Assist and, thanks to its sensors, can recognise a potentially dangerous driving manoeuvre in its early stages. If the vehicle is likely to be involved in an accident as a result of heavy understeer or oversteer or the driver has to brake hard in an emergency, PRE-SAFE® activates a series of preventive measures to prepare both the occupants and the vehicle for a possible collision.

    Seven airbags are standard equipment in the C-Class: two adaptive airbags for driver and front passenger, a kneebag for the driver (in the Euro NCAP countries), two sidebags in the backrests of the front seats and two large windowbags, which extend from the A-pillar to the C-pillar in the event of a side impact.

    Crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraints are part of the standard specification for the new C-Class. Once the sensors have determined that a rear-end collision has occurred and that the impact has exceeded a defined level, the pre-stressed springs inside the head restraints are released. As a result, the padded surface of the head restraint is shifted some 40 millimetres forward and 30 millimetres upward within a split second, providing the heads of the front-seat passengers with support at an early stage.

    The adaptive brake light developed by Mercedes-Benz is an important contribution to improved road safety. During emergency braking, the C-Class warns drivers behind by flashing the brake lights rapidly so they can react faster and avoid a rear-end collision.

    Throughout the development cycle, the new C-Class completed over 100 crash tests. This rigorous testing programme not only included more than two dozen different impact configurations, laid down as part of the car‘s global certification programme, but also nine particularly demanding in-house crash tests, some of which push the car far beyond any applicable legal requirements.

    Apart from the robust aluminium cross-member on the front end and longitudinal members that extend a long way forward, which divert the forces into the side structure, the bulkhead and the centre tunnel, for the first time the integral, high-strength steel subframe acts as a loading case level. It was therefore extended forward and joined to the newly developed longitudinal floor members using special supporting tubes.

    The B-pillars, which have to absorb high forces and transfer them into into the structure of the bodywork, consist of three such sheet metal layers, or shells, together with a large reinforcement which extends up to the top of the seat belt sash guide. The reinforcement and one of the shells are made of ultra-high-strength, hot-formed steel.

    The seats on the C-Class are fitted with high-strength tubular sections and impact-absorbing elements in the side trim. In the event of a side impact, the forces can be transferred via the seat and the centre console to the non-impacted side of the vehicle.

    The C-Class has completed about 5500 crash tests on the computer - true-to-life simulations, which provided engineers with useful insights particularly in the initial project phase. Mercedes-Benz uses one of the world‘s largest IT networks for these kinds of crash simulations, a process that involves computers carrying out up to 320 billion computing operations. Over 1500 processors were used as part of developing the safety systems for the C-Class.
