Introduced into Australia in October 2016, the C-Class Cabriolet managed to achieve an 84% Adult Occupant Protection score, achieved a Child Occupant Protection score of 79%, and a 66% Pedestrian Protection result.

ANCAP CEO James Goodwin says the vehicle generally performed well.

“The C-Class convertible is a well-equipped model and offers AEB City and AEB Interurban as standard.

“However, in the side impact test, the head of the 10-year-old child dummy contacted the metal frame of the roof and points were deducted from its Child Occupant Protection score.”

The five-star ANCAP safety rating applies to all two-wheel-drive C200 and C300 variants, other variants are unrated.
