Experts at TheCarConnection.com are disappointed that there are no safety ratings available for the 2009 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, but the included safety features are substantial.

The "vehicle's remarkable robustness, with thicker-than-average sheet metal and hand-built construction," as noted by Kelley Blue Book, should enable it to stand up to the worst. Mercedes-Benz has historically taken accident safety seriously, and this year's Mercedes-Benz G-Class is no exception.

The 2009 Mercedes-Benz G-Class has most of the standard safety equipment found in the better production vehicles today, including airbags and three-point belts with emergency tensioners. There are, however, some serious oversights. Both Cars.com and Edmunds report while there are full side-curtain airbags, normal (thorax) side bags have not been included.

Kelley Blue Book notes that the rear park assist and rearview camera are standard and will help deal with blind spots. Car and Driver reports that because of the Mercedes-Benz 2009 G-Class's "high seating position, the view is unencumbered."

Cars.com likes that Mercedes also offers at no additional charge its Tele Aid system, which provides emergency and theft-tracking services.

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.
