Compare with other cars in the Small Family Car category

The new A-Class performed strongly to gain five stars for adult occupant protection. Its passenger cell safeguarded its occupants, the car losing just over one point in the frontal and side impacts. The restraint systems included dual stage airbags, front belt pre-tensioners and adaptive load limiters and seatmounted side airbags. An intelligent belt reminder system is fitted for all seating positions. The protection it gave to child occupants was good. Protection for pedestrians was also reasonably good, gaining 17 points out of a possible 36.
