On Safety

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has crash-tested the 2009 Cadillac XLR-V. The structurally similar Chevrolet Corvette hasn’t been tested either.

MyRide.com reports that "both [2009 Cadillac XLR-V] occupants will benefit from front and seat-mounted side airbags." Edmunds says, "Antilock disc brakes, traction control and stability control are all standard," while "side airbags inflate to protect both the head and torso."

The 2009 Cadillac XLR-V has all the expected safety equipment for a high-performance luxury roadster.

"Seat belts have powered pretensioners," while "four-channel all-disc antilock brakes, traction control and a stability system" are standard, says Cars.com.

MyRide.com reports that the 2009 Cadillac has a "high rear body line that results in limited visibility."
