Expert Quotes:

Will come standard with dual front air bags
J.D. Power

Five stars, front impacts; five stars, side impacts
NHTSA

The 2010 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid provides a full complement of safety features. The roster of airbags includes those for driver and front passenger, front side airbags, and head-curtain side airbags in all three rows. Cadillac's StabiliTrak stability control system includes rollover mitigation, which monitors driving parameters and dials down power as needed to help prevent situations that could lead to a rollover. But the Escalade still gets only three stars from the federal government for rollover likelihood (largely for its high center of mass), though it earns the highest five-star ratings in tests for both frontal and side crash protection. The IIHS has not yet tested the Cadillac Escalade, or its Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon brethren.

The Cadillac Escalade Hybrid includes quite a few standard safety features, both active and passive. J.D. Power reviewers list "dual front air bags" and "head-protecting curtain side air bags with rollover deployment," as well as "anti-lock 4-wheel disc brakes," and Edmunds adds that "standard safety equipment on the Escalade Hybrid includes traction control, stability control, OnStar, [and] a rearview camera with park assist."

Like most tall SUVs, the 2010 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid has some problematic blind spots for rearward vision. ConsumerGuide warns that "visibility astern and to the right-rear is hindered by the roof design" and the sheer height of the tailgate. But it then points out that the 2010 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid offers "standard rear obstacle detection and....available rearview camera" that help drivers compensate for the poor rear sightlines.

Conclusion

The 2010 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid offers a full suite of airbags and gets good safety ratings; its low rollover score is predictable for any tall, heavy SUV.

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.
