The 2010 Mercedes-Benz R-Class has better safety protection than it did even last year. A new POST-SAFE system disables electrical and fuel systems after an accident, while PRE-SAFE tightens seatbelts in advance of an accident.

All R-Class crossovers have anti-lock brakes; traction and stability control; four-wheel drive; dual front, side, and curtain airbags that cover the third seating row; and tire pressure monitors. A radar-based cruise control system, parking sensors, and a rearview camera are options.

The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) gives the R-Class "good" ratings for front and side impact protection; NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has not tested the R-Class.

More Opinions
Cars.com: "side curtain airbags protect occupants in all three rows of seats"
Edmunds: "steeply raked windshield affords excellent sight lines"
Cars.com: "a nest of headrests impairs the rearward view, which is otherwise OK and helped by ample mirrors"
Cars.com: "reflections are evident in the steep windshield, but they're not too distracting"

Conclusion

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz R-Class hasn't been crash-tested by the feds, but private industry groups vouch for its high safety rating.

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.
