Mercedes-Benz C-Class Owners Manual / Occupant safety / Safely transporting children in the vehicle / Always observe when children are traveling in the vehicle

Also strictly observe the safety notes for the specific situation. In this way you can recognize potential risks and avoid dangers if children are traveling in the vehicle.

Be diligent

Bear in mind that neglecting to secure a child in the child restraint system may have serious consequences.

Always be diligent in securing a child carefully before every journey.

To improve protection for children younger than 12 years old or under 5 ft (1.50 m) in height, Mercedes-Benz recommends you observe the following information:

  • Always secure the child in a child restraint system suitable for this Mercedes-Benz vehicle.
  • The child restraint system must be appropriate to the age, weight and size of the child.
  • The vehicle seat must be suitable for installing a child restraint system.

Accident statistics show that children secured in the rear seats are generally safer than children secured in the front seats. For this reason, Mercedes-Benz strongly advises that you install a child restraint system on a rear seat.

Generic term "child restraint system"

The generic term child restraint system is used in this Operator's Manual. A child restraint system is, for example:

  • a baby car seat
  • a rearward-facing child seat
  • a forward-facing child seat
  • a child booster seat with a backrest and seat belt guide
    Mercedes-Benz recommends using a child booster seat with a backrest.

The child restraint system must be appropriate to the age, weight and size of the child.

Observing laws and legal requirements

Always observe the legal requirements when using a child restraint system in the vehicle.

Observing standards for child restraint systems

All child restraint systems must meet the following standards:

  • U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 213 and 225
  • Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 213 and 210.2

Confirmation that the child restraint system complies with the standards can be found on an instruction label on the child restraint system.

This confirmation can also be found in the installation instructions that are included with the child restraint system.
