You might think the 2010 Land Cruiser is one safe beast due to its size, and that's a fair assumption, though it hasn't been tested yet. It does come standard with electronic stability control, traction control, driver and front passenger active front headrests, driver and front passenger knee bags, first- and second-row outboard thorax side airbags, three-row roll-sensing side curtain airbags, and multiterrain anti-lock braking.

Car and Driver highlights the Land Cruiser's "barrage of airbags." That's 10 airbags, to be exact, including knee airbags for both front occupants, two rows of side impact airbags, and three-row curtain airbags.

Even with stability and traction control, the Land Cruiser is a heavy, tall SUV, and rollovers are therefore a real risk in the event of a crash. Bigger may feel safer, but that's not always the case when the rubber leaves the road and the metal meets it.

Still, the Land Cruiser should prove as tough as any SUV. Edmunds points out a stiffened frame that enhances crashworthiness and provides a foundation for the other safety feature to do their jobs, like the optional precollision system, "which cinches the front seatbelts when the various electronic sensors detect skidding or sudden hard braking."

Conclusion

The 2010 Toyota Land Cruiser hasn't been safety-tested, but it has all the crash-avoidance and passenger-protection bells and whistles one expects.

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.
