I feel that both the W126 and the W140 are safe. I absolutely love both of them, and think that they do a perfect job of keeping people safe. I got my 1995 S500 into a pretty major accident, (Airbags, Hood, Right Side door, headlights, corners, windshield, etc.) and I was able to open my door, and walk out.
I haven't gotten into any accidents with my W126, but I feel that the car is very solid, and will be able to withstand an accident very well.
I hope I will never have to find out though.
