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"
Good crash-test scores and features make the 2010 HUMMER H3 a strong safety performer.
