Scoring top marks the European New Car Assessment Program's (Euro ENCAP) safety tests, the three-pointed star's freshly-baked coupe is now available in the Philippines. Officially distributed by CATS Motors Inc., be sporty and safe in the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupé.
 
With its array of safety features, this luxury coupé passed with flying colors and received an exceptional 90% on its adult occupant rating, which involves front, side, and rear impact tests. Results also show that the level of protection is not that much affected by occupant size and should keep passengers safe even at different speeds and impact severities. Adding to its high level of safety standards are Mercedes-Benz innovations such as PRE-SAFE, a system that senses when an accident is about to occur and initiate additional passenger protection, and active head restraints that provides added support during a rear impact.

Pedestrians, on the other hand, should stay out of its path: its 57% road-kill ratio is something to be watched out for.
 
Mercedes-Benz serves three petrol and two diesel options with the C-Class Coupe, but CATS Motors Inc. currently has only the C250 on its local menu, plus the coveted C63 AMG version.
