Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has crash-tested the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, but the vehicle does offer a comprehensive list of safety gear.

Standard safety features on all 2009 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vehicles include "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,” says Cars.com. "Hill start assist, hill descent control and TeleAid are also included,” reports Edmunds.com

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class promises exceptional protection and has a wealth of protective features, but it hasn't been crash-tested.

While auto-dimming rearview mirrors are optional, Safercar.gov indicates that daytime running lights, auto door locks, automatic crash notification, and tire pressure monitors are all standard in the 2009 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

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