Neither NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has crash-tested the G-Class. TheCarConnection.com's editors do not expect either agency to perform any tests, due to the G-Class' advanced age and minuscule sales figures.

Mercedes-Benz does fit the G-Class with most of the safety gear it puts in other vehicles. Anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake force distribution along with stability control are standard in the 2010 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, as are curtain airbags. However, both Cars.com and Edmunds report while there are full side-curtain airbags, seat-mounted side airbags are not included.

A rearview camera is standard, and it's useful since visibility is constrained at the rear, where a wide frame surrounding the rear window blocks out most of the view. 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 2010 G-Class' high seating position, the view ahead is "unencumbered."

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

Conclusion

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz G-Class has some, but not all, of the safety equipment that modern M-B vehicles possess.

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.
