Because the CLA45 has not been crash-tested by either testing agency, we cannot rate its safety. Although automated emergency braking and forward-collision warning are standard, the rest of its driver assists cost extra.

Although the CLA45 still has a pair of desirable standard active-safety features and a host of relatively affordable options, it hasn't been crash-tested-and we don't expect this performance version ever will be.

Crash-Test Results

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the nonprofit, independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluate vehicles for crashworthiness in the United States. NHTSA assigns cars an overall rating out of five stars. IIHS uses a different set of tests, grades cars on a scale of Good to Poor, and awards the vehicles that perform best across its tests with Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ honors, the latter of which requires that the subject's automated forward-collision-braking system performs well.
