Expert Quotes:

Five stars, frontal impact; four stars, side impact
NHTSA

Not tested
IIHS

In tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2009 Pontiac G3 scored five stars in frontal impact and four stars for side impact protection.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not tested a G3, but the comparable 2009 Chevrolet Aveo was rated just Acceptable in frontal offset and Marginal in side impact tests.

Cars.com notes that “side curtain airbags are not available" on the G3, but other safety features include “standard driver and front-passenger airbags, standard front side-impact airbags, standard tire pressure monitoring system.” Edmunds adds that “OnStar communications are standard on all G3s. Antilock brakes are an extra-cost option, and side curtain airbags—a feature increasingly common in other subcompacts—are not available.”

Conclusion

The 2009 Pontiac G3 doesn't offer standout features or especially good crash-test results.

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.
