Cars.com reports standard safety features on all 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vehicles includes "three-row side curtain airbags and seat-mounted side-impact airbags for the first and second rows." Also standard are "active head restraints, all-disc anti-lock brakes, traction control and an electronic stability system."

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has comprehensive safety gear, but hasn’t been tested yet.

Edmunds.com says "hill start assist, hill descent control and TeleAid are also included" on the Mercedes-Benz 2008 GL.

Safercar.gov indicates that daytime running lights, auto door locks, automatic crash notification, and tire pressure monitors are all standard in the 2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. Auto-dimming rearview mirrors are optional.

For those with small children, LATCH child seat anchors are located on the outboard seats of the second and third rows.
