Mercedes-Benz cars come with six driver and passenger airbags,4-wheel anti-lock braking system, Neck-Pro crash-responsive head restraints, 3-point driver and front passenger shoulder belts including height adjustment, emergency tensioning, adaptive belt force limiter, rear 3-point seat belts, including outboard emergency tensioning, outboard belt force limiter, and outboard automatic height.
Compared to Mercedes-Benz’s rival, Audi cars, do not have 4 wheel anti-lock braking system. Moreover, both Audi and BMW cars have head airbags where the Mercedes-Benz cars have airbags and crash-responsive head restraints. It has been found out that head airbags do offer extra protection during crashes by deploying between the head and window, but head restraints are reusable and can be reset after being deployed. Besides, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) provides extra control and improved safety in difficult braking situations.
For the price range it falls into, Mercedes-Benz offers the added value of a unique standard safety feature not offered in other similar C-class sedans, even higher-priced models. When considering C-class sedan style, price, performance, and safety, the Mercedes-Benz provides a safety advantage to drivers and passengers.
