Passenger frontal airbag is designed to deploy without harming a child
Motor Trend

Many would consider it a tragic loss for a 2009 Maserati Quattroporte to be sacrificed in the name of crash-testing, but NHTSA and the IIHS have no such qualms. Unfortunately, the limited production runs and exorbitant price tags on the Maserati Quattroporte lineup are more realistic barriers for the crash-testing agencies, and accordingly there have been no tests done on the Maserati Quattroporte yet. The 2009 Maserati Quattroporte does, however, offer a few standard safety features that should bring a little peace of mind to drivers.

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com show that the Maserati Quattroporte offers the latest in safety equipment, especially when it comes to airbags. Motor Trend reviewers report that the 2009 Maserati Quattroporte's "passenger frontal airbag is designed to deploy without harming a child while protecting heavier than average occupants" thanks to a "two-stage design [that] senses what's hitting it" and alters its deployment in order to provide the optimal level of inflation and protection. Aside from the high-tech, two-stage airbag design, Edmunds says the Quattroporte "comes well stocked with safety features," including standard "stability control and antilock brakes."

Aside from its set of dedicated safety features, editors at TheCarConnection.com notice that the standard high-intensity bi-xenon headlamps offer tremendous illumination power, which greatly aids nighttime visibility. Driver visibility from within the Maserati Quattroporte is also enhanced by the "rear park assist" feature that Edmunds reviewers report is standard on all Maserati Quattroportes.

Conclusion

Safety isn't what sells cars like the 2009 Maserati Quattroporte, but most of the expected features are here.

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.
