Every year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash tests cars and rates them on their performance. The best-performing vehicles earn what it calls the Top Safety Pick+ award. This year, Toyota earned the most Top Safety Pick+ awards, nine in total.
“At Toyota, we continue to focus on the safety and peace of mind of our customers,” said Dino Triantafyllos, Toyota’s North American Chief Quality Officer, in a statement. “We are proud that IIHS has recognized our commitment to helping protect drivers and passengers.”
The awards for Toyota include Top Safety Pick+ ratings for the Toyota Prius v, Toyota Camry, Toyota Avalon, Toyota RAV4, Lexus CT 200h, Lexus ES, Lexus RC, Lexus NX, and Scion iA.
In order for a vehicle to earn a Top Safety Pick+ recognition, it has to achieve the top “good” rating in all crash tests and offer an available front crash prevention system rated at “advanced” or “superior” with automatic braking capabilities. It is worth noting that the Scion iA was the only low-priced car available with a standard pre-collision system.
