Those considering the 2009 Lexus GS models will not be left wanting for safety equipment.

The demanding Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the 2009 Lexus GS its highest rating of "good" in both front and side impact tests. The IIHS tests were performed on a 2006 model, but they're considered applicable to both the 2009 Lexus GS 350 and 2009 Lexus GS 460.

According to Edmunds, the 2009 Lexus GS has "a total of 10 airbags, including front and rear seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags and full-length head curtain airbags...standard [2009 Lexus] GS 460 safety equipment includes antilock brakes with brake assist and stability and traction controls."

Along with a full complement of airbags, reports Cars.com, the 2009 Lexus GS's "optional pre-collision system incorporates active braking, which can trigger the brakes automatically under certain conditions...[an] advanced stability system anticipates instability or skidding before it occurs, monitors actual versus intended action, and helps correct problems using a mix of braking, throttle and steering control." Additional optional equipment includes "run-flat tires [and] Lexus Link communications."

"All-around visibility is good despite moderately shallow side and rear windows," due to the fact that 2009 Lexus GS seats are "set fairly high," says ConsumerGuide.

Conclusion

The 2009 Lexus GS sedan features an extensive list of safety features and earns favorable IIHS ratings.

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.
