Despite the lack of official crash-test data, Mercedes-Benz's reputation for engineering and safety is well-earned, and applied through the design of the 2014 SLS AMG GT. Six airbags are standard in the coupe, as are traction and multi-mode stability control.
On the tech side, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitors are also standard. Some of Mercedes' more advanced safety technology systems, such as lane-keeping assist and head-up displays, are not available, however.
The only significant safety concern with the SLS AMG GT is visibility, as the gullwing coupe's rear window and pillars limit vision, and the roadster's high deck lid--about the level of the occupants' shoulders--does as well. The SLS' low-slung stance also contributes to the lack of visibility, requiring drivers to exercise care when maneuvering in traffic. Fortunately, the blind-spot monitors help mitigate this shortcoming.
