A few weeks ago it received an environmental certificate and now it's time to get yet another green appraisal in the form of a allergy-friendly seal of quality from the Center for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) for passenger cars.
We are of course talking about the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class W205, which has been designed with both the well-being of the environment and its passengers in mind from the get go, as the adjacent testing images prove.

“We are delighted that the allergy-friendly nature of our Mercedes-Benz passenger cars has now been scientifically and independently recognized through the award of the ECARF Seal”, commented Dr Jörg Breuer, Director Certification, Regulatory Affairs & Environment at Daimler AG. “Indeed, the constant improvement of air quality in the interior has for many years now been a key aspect of the development of components and materials for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.”

Mercedes-Benz has been testing the interior emissions of all its passenger car since 1992, going as far as hiring a team of olfactory experts who ensure that all smells in Mercedes-Benz vehicles remain at a consistently pleasant level.

The all-new C-Class W205 is the latest three-pointed star vehicle to have received the ECARF Seal of Quality, joining all other current Mercedes-Benz models. “In our estimation, Mercedes-Benz currently represents the benchmark in terms of allergen optimization for vehicles,” according to Professor Dr Torsten Zuberbier, Director of the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF).
