the R-Class comes with a standard pile of air bags and a host of the automaker's occupant safety features
Motor Trend

The 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class has a solid set of safety features, and in addition to some good safety ratings it has M-B's decades-earned reputation for safety.

Eight airbags are included in all 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class models, along with the Pre-Safe safety system and front active headrests. There's also 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.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the R-Class has achieved top 'good' results for frontal, side, and rear impact--although it still hasn't been tested in the agency's new roof strength area. The federal government also hasn't yet put the R-Class through its battery of tests, which were revised last year.

Conclusion

Good safety equipment and the brand's solid reputation for safety provide assurance in the R-Class.

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.
