Mercedes C200 Survives a bus –Saves passengers – reasons why Mercedes Benz cars are so expensive
CCTV footage shows that though the Mercedes C200 was badly hit, the Superior German design and build quality survives a bus and safety features kept passengers safe.
A bus from Kerala State Road Transport (KSRTC) crushed a Mercedes Benz C Class at very high speed. The full video was captured on a CCTV camera installed nearby. The incident occurred near Kottayam earlier this week.
The incident took place when a Mercedes C-Class took a turn to enter the fuel station without any indicator. At that time visibility was low due to heavy rain. The Mercedes driver failed to notice the loaded bus coming from the opposite lane at full speed. Before the driver could clear out of the way, the bus hit the Mercedes at full speed on the side.
If a bus collides with a car at such speed and that too from the side, normally one would think that the car will be smashed and the passengers would be killed. But not when it is a Mercedes-Benz car. Mercedes-Benz had shown an elephant standing on the car’s roof when the Mercedes C200 was newly launched. See video below:

The video shows smoke emerging from the car due to airbags deploying. In addition to a solid build quality, technology and design, Mercedes-Benz cars are fitted with all the latest safety features which can save your life.
