SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Five stars, driver front impacts; four stars, passenger front impacts; five stars, side impacts; three stars, rollover


Poor outward visibility

It looks safe, and the HUMMER H3 and H3T have picked up some strong safety scores. The SUV version earns a mix of five and four stars from NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) for front- and side-impact safety, with three stars for rollover protection; the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has rated the H3 "acceptable" in the past. Each H3 has standard front, side, and curtain airbags; stability control; and four-wheel drive. Don't skip the optional rearview camera and rear parking assist; with all the blind spots it offers, driving an H3 can feel like piloting a tank.

Edmunds: Standard "antilock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, the OnStar communications system and full-length side curtain airbags"
Autoblog: H3T has "Hill Start Assist, Traction Control, [and] Electronic Stability Control"
Car and Driver: hill-start assist "holds the brakes for two seconds after pedal release"
Cars.com: "OnStar comes standard with one year's worth of safety and security service"
ConsumerGuide: "Aft visibility is compromised by thick roof pillars and narrow glass openings"
Edmunds: "lousy outward visibility"
ConsumerGuide: "hatch-mounted spare tire...blocks much of the rear window"
Automobile: "back-up camera display screen, which hides within the rear view mirror housing, and automatically slides out into view when summoned"

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.
