The B-Class Coupe is fitted as an option with Mercedes Benz's 'PRE-SAFE'® system which primes the restraint and protection systems in readiness for a collision. In Euro NCAP's frontal and side barrier impacts, the PRE-SAFE® System was not activated. In the frontal impact, the B Class scored maximum points for its protection of the driver with all body areas being well protected. For the passenger, good protection was provided in all body areas except for the lower legs, protection of which was rated as adequate. Mercedes-Benz showed that good protection would also be provided to the knees and femurs of occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, the B Class scored maximum points, all body areas being well protected. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of all other body areas was good. The front seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear end collision.
