a perfect five stars in government-administered frontal-impact crash tests

Unfortunately, stability control is not offered on any Sentra
Car and Driver

The 2009 Nissan Sentra scores well in federal crash tests, but some safety features remain unavailable.

The Sentra obtained top five-star ratings in the federal government’s frontal crash tests, and a mix of four- and five-star ratings in side-impact protection.

Side airbags are standard on the Sentra, but other safety features are lacking. Stability control isn’t offered on the 2009 Nissan Sentra, multiple sources report, and anti-lock brakes aren’t standard on the base 2.0 model.

Motor Trend reports that the 2009 Nissan Sentra has "Dynamic Head Restraint" and "Rear Seat Head Restraint," along with "Child Seat Lower Anchorage."

Cars.com notes the standard equipment in this Nissan; 2009 Sentras "include standard a tire pressure monitoring system, side-impact airbags and active head restraints for the front seats." It also has "side curtain airbags [to] cover all the side windows," and "for 2009, anti-lock brakes become standard on the 2.0 S and the SL trim level, but remain optional on the Sentra 2.0."


The 2009 Nissan Sentra rates well for safety, but more standard safety features could lend even more peace of mind.

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.
