SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

excellent crash test scores
Edmunds

Good" rating in frontal-offset crash testing
IIHS

Five stars, front and side impacts
NHTSA

The 2009 Chevrolet Equinox boasts one of the best safety records of any crossover, and it delivers considerable peace of mind to occupants.

While reviewers laud most safety features on the 2009 Chevrolet Equinox, ConsumerGuide is unimpressed by the way its "thick front roof pillars obscure visibility at stop signs." And while necessary for vehicle integrity in rollover accidents, "rear vision is hindered by thick side and rear pillars."

Cars.com points out that that front airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control all are standard.

The Equinox has some pretty impressive scores in crash testing. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rates the 2009 Chevrolet Equinox at five stars for all front and side impacts, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) deems its front-impact protection “good.”

Conclusion

The addition of head curtain side-impact airbags raises the already impeccable safety rating of the 2009 Chevrolet Equinox.

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.
