Want a Safe Car? These Toyota Models Are Top Safety Picks

March 3rd, 2017 by

You want the options and accessories. You can’t be without an amazing sound and infotainment system. And if the car isn’t fun to drive, what’s the point? But one of the most important factors when shopping for a car is whether it will keep you and your family safe when you drive. That’s why the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) annually makes their Top Safety Picks.

What does a Top Safety Pick Mean?

If a vehicle is rated as a Top Safety Pick, it has done well in all five crashworthiness tests, achieving a ‘good’ rating. To go a step further, a vehicle can get a rating of Top Safety Pick Plus if it’s equipped with headlights that do a fantastic job of illuminating the way.

And here are the Toyota models that receive this important safety rating for 2017:

2017 Toyota Yaris iA

The subcompact Yaris iA isn’t just efficient and inexpensive. It’s also one of just two Top Safety Picks in the minicar category.

2017 Corolla

The outstanding 2017 Corolla is eye-catching and an absolute thrill to pilot. It’s a Top Safety Pick + winner with LED projector headlights and a standard Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection.

2017 Prius, Prius Prime, and Prius v

These Prius models have long been known for fuel efficiency and long-lasting dependability. They’re also incredibly safe, winning Top Safety Pick + for each of these three Prius models.

2017 Camry

An excellent blend of affordability, performance, and luxury, the Camry has been a popular choice for decades. For 2017, it continues to win awards including Top Safety Pick + when it’s equipped with the standard halogen headlights and optional Pre-Collision System.

2017 Avalon

Stand out in the crowd with the 2017 Toyota Avalon. Enveloped in a premium sedan and enjoying the comforts of modern technology, it’s also going to keep you safe. The Avalon is one of just two Top Safety Picks in the Large Car segment, all based on its standard equipment alone.

2017 RAV4

The 2017 Toyota RAV4 is a popular choice for its family-friendly package and efficient operation. The RAV4 will protect the occupants well, rated as a Top Safety Pick + when it’s equipped with optional LED headlights.

No matter which trim level you choose, the 2017 Toyota Highlander is a Top Safety Pick + winner. It does so based on its standard equipment – features like standard Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection.
