Side and curtain airbags “unavailable on base model”
Edmunds

The 2009 Nissan GT-R offers a host of standard safety gear—at least in its premium version—but as yet, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has had the heart to crash-test one of the rare supercars.

The GT-R does come with a stock list of safety gear to protect occupants from injury. “Standard safety features on the 2009 Nissan GT-R include massive Brembo brakes with antilock capability, stability control and traction control,” Edmunds reports, adding “front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags are standard on GT-R Premiums but unavailable on the base model.” Likely, this is to accommodate owners who will only use their cars on the track.

The Los Angeles Times notes that the GT-R’s stability systems can be shut off for track driving. “You can turn off stability control, but it's plain the car's dynamics have been developed with the system ciphering away in the background. Which is to say, the car's faster around a racetrack with stability control on.”

Conclusion

The 2009 Nissan GT-R offers a host of safety devices (in Premium models), but there are no crash-test results.

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.
