2011 Jeep Liberty Safety

7.0
Safety
The 2011 Jeep Liberty doesn't omit any essential safety features. Side-impact and side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control, active head restraints, and several other electronic off-road aids are included.

But its crash-test credentials aren't nearly as good; it only achieves a worrisome 'marginal' rating from the IIHS in side-impact safety—the second-worst rating the IIHS gives. And in the seat-based rear impact test it gets just 'acceptable.' Protection in both frontal impacts and in the new roof strength score is rated 'good.'

The 2011 Liberty hasn't yet been rated in the revised (and more stringent) federal NCAP tests introduced this year. However, in the previous NHTSA tests, the 2010 Liberty scored an excellent five stars in all frontal and side categories.

Safety equipment for the Liberty is quite good, but there's not enough information out there to declare the same for its occupant protection.
