#10. Initial tests prove the 2010 GMC Terrain to be a very safe vehicle.
The 2010 GMC Terrain is so new that the government’s crash test authority, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), hasn’t tested this little crossover yet. However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has, awarding the Terrain its Top Safety Pick award due to excellent results in frontal- and side-impact tests. Part of that outcome is due to the inclusion of six standard airbags. Among the other safety features found on every 2010 GMC Terrain are antilock brakes, StabiliTrak stability control, and a tire pressure monitor. Buyers also benefit from a complimentary year of OnStar’s Safe and Sound plan, offering everything from automatic crash response services to hands-free calling.
