High crash-test scores earn the 2009 Hyundai Sonata an excellent safety rating from TheCarConnection.com.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the Hyundai Sonata  five out of five stars on all frontal and side impact protection tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which is considered more stringent, awards the Hyundai Sonata its top mark of "good" for frontal offset crashes and its second-best mark of "acceptable" for side impacts.

There is no shortage of standard Hyundai Sonata 2009 safety equipment. "Safety features on all Sonatas include the mandatory dual-stage front-seat airbags; front-seat side-impact airbags for torso protection; and full-coverage side curtain airbags designed to provide head protection," according to Automotive.com. In addition to these airbags, Cars.com notes that the 2009 Hyundai Sonata four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes "incorporate electronic brake-force distribution," and "all seating positions have three-point seat belts." Motor Trend underscores the standard electronic stability and traction control: “Camry and Altima charge you extra for these safety systems.”

Cars.com also reports that the Hyundai Sonata’s "visibility is great, courtesy of big mirrors and abundant glass." Automotive.com acknowledges "outward visibility is good, although the wide C-pillars constrict quick, over-the-shoulder traffic checks for lane changing."

Conclusion

You'll ride in safety and security aboard the 2009 Hyundai Sonata.

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.
