Only the absence of test data keeps the 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class from earning a perfect 10 in safety. Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has crash-tested the 2009 Mercedes CLK-Class. However, TheCarConnection.com scores the 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class high in the area of active and passive safety devices.

Edmunds reports that the 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class convertible "features large side windows and a relatively slim roof design for good top-up visibility." While drivers of the CLK-Class coupe enjoy an exceptionally clear view behind the wheel, according to Kelley Blue Book, "the absence of a center pillar between the front and rear window on each side...improves active safety by allowing an unobstructed view, with the windows in place or lowered."

Edmunds also notes that Mercedes-Benz 2009 "rear side airbags on convertibles are optional," although they are standard on the CLK63 AMG, and "pop-up roll bars behind the rear seats that deploy in a roll-over are standard."

Cars.com reports that all Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class models "have four side-impact airbags...front-seat side-impact airbags in [Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class] Cabriolets provide head and thorax protection, while [Mercedes-Benz 2009] Coupes have full-length side curtain airbags, [while] antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are standard."

Conclusion

The abundance of active and passive safety devices earns the 2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class a near-perfect score.

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.
