SAFETY | 8 out of 10
Five stars, front and side impact protection; three stars, rollover resistance
safer than ever before
The 2010 Chevrolet Suburban has good crash-test scores and the expected array of standard safety equipment.
NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) rates the Suburban at five stars for front and side impacts, but only three stars for rollover protection. The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) hasn't tested the GM big utes yet.
StabiliTrak stability control, anti-lock brakes, traction control, and curtain airbags for all rows are standard, as confirmed by ConsumerGuide and Cars.com. Car and Driver reports that tire pressure monitoring and seat belt pre-tensioners are also standard with the Suburban.
A blind-spot warning system is an option, as are a rearview camera and parking sensors. TheCarConnection.com recommends the rearview camera and the parking sensors for all drivers, since the Suburban is so large and difficult to park. ConsumerGuide says, however, that the camera "distorts distances, compromising its usefulness."
The 2010 Chevrolet Suburban excels in federal crash tests and has safety options to help overcome its physical size.
