safety junkies will appreciate such technologies as a dynamic Bi-Xenon light system, lane-change assist (aka, blind-spot monitor), and adaptive cruise control.
Motor Trend

thick A-pillars allow the Cayenne to pass the NHTSA's new roof-crush standards, yet they also hamper forward visibility, particularly when making left-hand turns
Edmunds

With the Cayenne’s high nose and the machine jacked up, we couldn’t see what was directly in front, especially when cresting a grade.
Car and Driver

Like other high-end sport/luxury SUVs, the 2012 Cayenne hasn't been tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The Cayenne does, however, come with standard anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, a full complement of airbags, plus options like dynamic lighting, Lane Change Assistant, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more.

In off-road situations, hill descent control and speed-set control help when going downhill, while on the road, the Cayenne's capable handling helps avoid obstacles and accidents.

Conclusion

Despite the lack of official safety ratings, the Cayenne's standard and available safety equipment provides a degree of comfort and ease.

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.
