The 2009 Lexus ES 350 garners awards for safety from both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The IIHS awards the ES 350 a "good" rating, while NHTSA gives it five stars for front protection, five for driver side impacts, four stars for passenger side impacts, and four stars for rollover protection.

Standard safety equipment on the 2009 Lexus ES 350 includes eight airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, and stability control. Motor Trend reports that “available rear-seat side bags bring the total to ten.”

Front seat belts automatically tighten and the brake assist prepares to go into action if the Lexus proprietary Pre-Collision System determines that a collision is imminent. The system will also activate the brakes without the driver if necessary, Edmunds says. Adaptive Cruise Control is also available; it uses radar to keep a safe distance between the Lexus 2008 ES 350 and the vehicle ahead in the lane.

Conclusion

A strong, safe environment for passengers is provided in the Lexus 2009 ES 350.

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.
