Excellent crash-test scores confirm the 2009 Saturn Aura as one the safest vehicle in its class, and the addition of StabiliTrak only elevates the Aura’s remarkable safety record.

The 2009 Saturn Aura has not been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), but according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2009 Saturn Aura earns five out of five stars in passenger, driver, side impact front, and side impact rear tests, and four out of five stars in rollover protection. The only black spot is a "marginal" rating from the IIHS in its seat-based rear-impact test—indicating a higher chance of whiplash or neck injury in a rear-ender.

According to Edmunds, the Saturn Aura has "antilock disc brakes, traction control and the OnStar emergency communications system," along with "[f]ront-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags." Cars.com says, "The Aura doesn't skimp on safety provisions." Comfort-oriented features help bulk up the Aura’s safety record, adds Cars.com. With the "steering wheel telescoping adjustment," you can find the appropriate distance from the airbag—a major safety concern. You can add "power-adjustable pedals" as well, reports ConsumerGuide.

ConsumerGuide remarks that visibility in the Saturn Aura is "just OK," when it comes to looking "dead astern and to the right-rear," though there is "no problem otherwise."

Conclusion

The 2009 Saturn Aura is a safe vehicle with good crash-test scores and all the expected safety features.

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.
