Expert Quotes:

“no safety head restraint in the middle” rear seat
USAToday

No test data
NHTSA

No test data
IIHS

The 2009 Pontiac G8 retains all the latest in safety equipment, but since the G8 is set to be a relatively low-volume model shoppers will have to do without crash-test results from either of the major U.S. programs. Both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have yet to crash-test the 2009 G8.

Edmunds.com notes that standard equipment on the G8 includes dual front airbags, side and curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability and traction control. GM also offers OnStar, its in-car communication network, as standard.

USAToday criticizes the G8 because “there's no safety head restraint in the middle, but otherwise, the G8 has the standard selection of seatbelts and airbags.

Conclusion

The 2009 Pontiac G8 sports all the latest safety gear, but it also does well in avoiding accidents in the first place.

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.
