Mercedes-Benz C-Class Named Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

December 23, 2008

MONTVALE, NJ – The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class one of their Top Safety Picks for 2009, according to the manufacturer. The news comes after the IIHS examined the C-Class in three categories — frontal offset, side-impact, and rear crash protection/head restraint — after which the sedan achieved top marks of “Good” in each.

In addition to the IIHS award, the Mercedes C-Class was also awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP (the European New Car Assessment Program), making it one of the safest cars on the market.
