backseat occupants sit well back in lounge-shaped seats alongside the C-pillars rather than next to the doors
It's no surprise that neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has crash-tested the 2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Drivers and passengers are provided the latest in safety gear inside the 2009 Phantom. Cars.com lists standard safety features as including “side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, active front head restraints, antilock brakes, electronic stability system, traction control and break-resistant glass.” An electronic parking brake and park-distance control sensors for the front and rear of the Phantom are also standard equipment.
“To aid in safety, privacy and social interaction, backseat occupants sit well back in lounge-shaped seats alongside the C-pillars rather than next to the doors,” reports Cars.com.
Front and rear cameras are offered as an option, but the Phantom does not include the very latest safety features, like lane-departure warning systems, laser-guided cruise control, or blind-spot detection systems.
Despite the lack of crash-test ratings, the 2009 Rolls-Royce Phantom scores well due to its excellent safety features.
