Expert Quotes:

Good," frontal offset and side impact

Five stars, frontal and side impact

Editors at TheCarConnection.com are impressed with the safety features included and available on the 2009 Toyota Avalon.

In crash tests, the 2009 Toyota Avalon performs splendidly. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards the Avalon its top "good" rating for frontal offset and side impact crash testing. The Avalon also earns five stars across the board in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) crash tests, except for a four-star rating for rollover resistance.

Edmunds states that the Avalon's standard safety equipment "includes antilock disc brakes, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers and a driver-side knee airbag." Cars.com explains that the Avalon's "rear brake discs have been enlarged and are now gripped by aluminum calipers for better braking performance." For 2009, Electronic Stability Control is newly standard across the line.

Motor Trend praises the Avalon's stability control system, calling it "a particularly cushy catcher's mitt, grabbing wayward chassis gyrations without a stinging rebuke back to the driver."



The 2010 Toyota Avalon is a good performer in the safety category. Drivers and families will be pleased.

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.
