Expert Quotes:

top Good ratings in all tests

four stars frontal for the driver, five stars in all other tests

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL has not yet been tested by either the federal government or the insurance industry—neither have previous model years—and based on its low sales volumes and high price, it’s likely that it won’t be.

With an especially hefty body structure and an abundance of safety features, including a full array of airbags and an automatic-deploying pop-up rollbar, the SL is likely safer than many solid-roof coupes. Mercedes-Benz actually uses the claim “The World’s Safest Convertible.”


The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL is about the safest you can get in a car that has open-air capabilities.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
