Experts at TheCarConnection.com note that while the 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser has not been safety-tested, it does provide a bevy of great safety features.

Active headrests for front-seat occupants, tire pressure monitoring, anti-lock brakes, stability and active traction control, brake assist, and Toyota's VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) round out the list of features that keep the Land Cruiser safe and secure. "As one might expect," says Car and Driver, "the new Cruiser is replete with safety equipment including a barrage of airbags." That's 10 airbags, to be exact, including knee airbags for both front occupants, two rows of side impact airbags, and three-row curtain airbags.

A stiffened frame that enhances crashworthiness, says Edmunds, provides a foundation for many safety items. Toyota's optional precollision system, "which cinches the front seatbelts when the various electronic sensors detect skidding or sudden hard braking," adds yet another layer of safety to the Cruiser should it be involved in a mishap.

All SUVs, with their inherent higher center of gravity, are more prone to rollovers than cars, but the Land Cruiser's stability control mitigates this tendency considerably.

Conclusion

The 2009 Toyota Land Cruiser hasn't been safety-tested, but it has all the crash-avoidance and passenger-protection bells and whistles one expects.

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.
