airbags on board the 2011 Mercedes-Benz R-Class, along with the Pre-Safe safety
system and front active headrests. Newly available is a blind-spot system that
alerts with a triangle in the rearview mirror, as well as a chime, when you use
the turn signal and another vehicle is alongside.

model achieved top "good" results for frontal, side, and rear
protection from the IIHS, though it wasn't tested by the federal government.

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.
