Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have conducted tests on the 2009 HUMMER H2, but reviews read by TheCarConnection.com experts gave positive feedback generally to the variety of standard safety features offered.
MyRide.com points out the H2’s standard anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger airbags, and daytime running lights. Edmunds notes that "front-row safety belt pre-tensioners" and "OnStar emergency communications system" complete the impressive mixture of standard safety features. Cars.com is put at ease by the standard side curtain airbags "that deploy downward along the side windows for all three rows of seats" and automatically "deploy if a rollover is sensed."
Driver’s-seat visibility is the biggest fault of the 2009 HUMMER H2, marring an otherwise safe vehicle. ForbesAutos scolds the H2 HUMMER for minuscule windows that "significantly impair outward visibility."
