One of the most crucial aspects for minivans is their safety. After all, minivans are designed to carry your most precious cargo, and thankfully, the 2010 Toyota Sienna posts favorable results in independent crash tests.

The Sienna scores four- and five-star ratings for frontal impact, five stars in side impact from the federal government, and "good" judgments from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in frontal and side impact tests. Unfortunately, the IIHS deems the Sienna "poor" in the seat-based rear impact test, which gauges the risk of whiplash injury, among other things.

Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard on every grade of the 2010 Toyota Sienna, as are front side airbags and side curtain bags covering all three seating rows.

Car and Driver finds the Sienna’s safety levels “typical for this class,” and lists the notable active safety features as “ABS with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist, as well as a stability control system incorporating traction control.” They continue: “passive features include two-stage front airbags, front seat side airbags, and curtain airbags for all three rows.”

Edmunds points out that “the XLE Limited also comes with front and rear park assist, while rear park assist is available on LE and XLE trims. If you opt for the navigation system, you'll also get a handy rearview camera.”

Conclusion

The 2010 Toyota Sienna sets the mind at ease in terms of safety, even though the test results are not record breaking.

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.
