Mercedes-Benz CLA - Crash Tests 2019

The passenger compartment of the CLA remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the kneesand femurs of both the driver and passenger. Mercedes-Benz showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants ofdifferent sizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection of all critical body areas was good oradequate for both the driver and the rear passenger. In the side barrier impact, dummy readings showed good protection of all bodyareas. However, the rear door on the impacted side of the car opened during the test and the score was penalised for the risk of occupantejection. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other critical body regions was good. Testson the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. Ageometric assessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) systemperformed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused, withcollisions avoided or mitigated in all test scenarios
