NHTSA

With front, front side, and side curtain airbags, the Yukon Hybrid adds front seat-mounted side airbags for 2010. Anti-lock brakes and the StabiliTrack stability control system are standard. The 2010 GMC Yukon Hybrid is highly rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), earning a perfect five stars for occupant protection in the frontal and side impact category, though only three stars for rollover likelihood. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not yet had a chance to rate the Yukon Hybrid or the very similar Chevrolet Tahoe or Cadillac Escalade hybrids.

ForbesAutos says that the GMC Yukon Hybrid 2010 features "GM's StabiliTrak stability control system" and points out that the side-curtain airbags "remain inflated for several seconds to protect passengers in the event of a rollover." Edmunds reviewers add that standard safety equipment on the 2010 GMC Yukon Hybrid includes "full-length side curtain airbags, antilock disc brakes, traction control, OnStar and a rearview camera."

Considering the size of the 2010 GMC Yukon Hybrid, visibility from behind the wheel is excellent. While the Yukon Hybrid's sheer size impedes visibility directly to the rear, Kelley Blue Book says the standard "rearview camera system" makes reversing and parallel parking maneuvers somewhat easier. Reviewers at AutoWeek attribute the feeling of driver control to "a seating position above the fray."

Conclusion

The 2010 GMC Yukon Hybrid includes the standard suite of airbags and stability control, and it does fairly well in front and side crash testing.

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.
