It is, EURONCAP gives the w202 only 2 stars, the w203 gets 4 and starting from 2002 it even gets 5 stars. You can see it here : http://www.euroncap.com/content/safe...ings.php?id1=3

The W202 was said to be the safest car in its class when it was introduced in 1993. It got sideairbags in late 97 too, and ESP late 99

After seeing the pictures of this W202 in a frontal crash it sure doesnt make me feel to safe in this car. If you look at how the A pillar bends outward this is horrible!!!

...if it were to bend at all, I'd rather it bend outwards than inwards!

LOL! My point is that this should not happen on these cars. I can see this on a car made in China but A Mercedes-Benz Common now.

I slid my w202 into a guardrail on icy roads at about 40mph, result: some scratches, fender bent 1cm, no alignment problems whatsoever.
Stupid thing, it was in my own street, the main roads were salted so I didn't notice any ice untill I drove into my street, the entrance looks like a chicane.

I think I was lucky i caught the guardrail sideways and the road was frozen so my car bounced right back onto the road.
When it happened it sounded very bad (squealing metal) and I was afraid I ripped off the whole right side of the car.

It's on this page:
