Five stars, frontal and side; four stars, rollover
NHTSA

Fore and aft visibility are good, though the view to the rear corners is tricky
ConsumerGuide

The 2009 Toyota Venza boasts top crash-test scores in nearly all categories from the IIHS and NHTSA. It's even been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2009. Its only imperfect rating is four stars out of five in the federal rollover ratings, but this is the best it gets for a tall crossover vehicle.

Cars.com reviewers observe that the standard safety features on the Venza Toyota include "stability control, active front head restraints, seat-mounted side-impact airbags for front passengers, [and] side curtain airbags for both rows of seats." The Detroit News is confident enough to give the 2009 Toyota Venza an "excellent" rating in the safety category, citing the Venza Toyota's "electronic stability control, full complement of air bags and other safety features." Cars.com adds that a "backup camera" is available "as part of a $570 security package," which further enhances safety by improving driver visibility.

Visibility on the Venza Toyota doesn't need a whole lot of improving, at least not according to most reviewers. ConsumerGuide reveals that "fore and aft visibility are good, though the view to the rear corners is tricky because of very thick roof pillars." Other reviewers are similarly quick to heap praise on the driver visibility from within the 2009 Toyota Venza.

Conclusion

The 2009 Toyota Venza is a very safe vehicle.

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.
