Safest Car of the Year 2019

Congratulations to Mercedes-Benz on the CLA being named New Zealand's Safest Car for 2019 at the recent AA Driven Car of the Year awards held in Auckland.

The safest car award isn't judged, it's calculated from the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP) safety ratings during the 12-month period. The Mercedes-Benz CLA achieved full points in a number of tests. You can watch the video of how it performed here.
