Expert Quotes:

“If you opt for the navigation system, you'll also get a handy rearview camera”

NHTSA

“Good,” frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests
IIHS

“typical for this class”
Car and Driver

Most minivans are typically among the safest vehicles, so it takes especially strong crash-test scores or innovative features to score high here. The 2009 Toyota Sienna doesn’t get the highest scores, but it still possesses more than enough active and passive safety to easily recommend it for hauling your most precious cargo.

Regarding the Sienna's performance in tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the insurance-affiliated IIHS, Edmunds reports “the 2009 Toyota Sienna earned four stars (out of five) for driver protection in frontal impacts and five stars for the front passenger. It also received five stars across the board for side-impact crash protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave Toyota's minivan a ‘Good’ rating (its highest) for its performance in both frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests.”

Edmunds notes, “The XLE Limited also comes with front and rear park assist, while rear park assist is available on LE and XLE trims. If you opt for the navigation system, you'll also get a handy rearview camera.”

Describing its safety repertoire as “typical for this class,” Car and Driver lists the notable active safety features as “ABS with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist, as well as a stability control system incorporating traction control.” They continue, “passive features include two-stage front airbags, front seat side airbags, and curtain airbags for all three rows.”

Conclusion

The 2009 Toyota Sienna doesn’t stand out in terms of safety ratings, but it has the goods to make families feel secure.

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.
