Five stars, front and side impacts
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.”
The addition of head curtain side-impact airbags raises the already impeccable safety rating of the 2009 Chevrolet Equinox.
