Safety

TheCarConnection.com has determined that the 2009 Mercury Sable is currently one of the safest vehicles available. The Sable received top scores from NHTSA and the IIHS in their crash-test programs, and the IIHS has gone so far as to call the Sable a Top Safety Pick for 2009.

Notably, the 2009 Mercury Sable comes standard with electronic stability control. As of this model year, the base versions of most mid-size sedans still don’t automatically include this lifesaving feature.

Tremendous occupant protection is awarded to drivers and passengers of the Mercury Sable for an affordable price.

ConsumerGuide reports that "higher seating [in the Mercury Sable] than in most cars combines with a low dash top and large windows for a take-charge driving feel and fine outward vision."

Cars.com adds that the Sable's "six standard airbags include side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows; the latter devices include Ford's Safety Canopy, which can keep them inflated for several seconds during a rollover."

Motor Trend sums it up best: "Those looking for a safe, solid and slightly more upscale version of the Ford Taurus need look no further" than the 2009 Mercury Sable.
