Toyota Comments on Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Small Overlap Test


December 20, 2012
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) periodically develops new, more severe or specialized tests which go beyond federal requirements. With this new test, the Institute has raised the bar again, and we will respond to the challenge. We are evaluating the new test protocols and can say that there will not be one single solution to achieve greater crash performance in this area.

Toyota has 19 Toyota, Lexus and Scion models named 2012 IIHS “Top Safety Picks," including the Camry and Prius v, more than any other automaker.  We’re also proud of the Camry’s 5 Star Safety rating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP)*

          *The Prius v has not been rated by the NHTSA at this point.
