2012 Toyota Sienna Safety

9.0
Safety

The Sienna performs well in crash tests, and has some advanced safety technology that doesn't quite match that offered on its rivals, the Chrysler minivans.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Sienna an overall rating of four stars. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) calls the Sienna a Top Safety Pick.

Crash tests prove the Sienna's a great choice for safety.
All models come with side curtain airbags that offer protection for all three rows of seating, as well as a driver-side knee airbag. A pre-collision protection system that preps the car for an imminent accident is offered on higher-level trims, as is dynamic cruise control. However, the Sienna doesn't have the latest blind-spot monitors offered on other minivans and many crossover vehicles.

Visibility is excellent in the Sienna, and its available rearview camera offers a 180-degree view.
