2009 Mercedes-Benz SL Class Safety

10
Safety

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.
