Toyota Top Safety Picks Outnumber Other Brands

April 16th, 2017 by

Toyotas earned a top spot for seven cars and SUVs on the Top Safety Pick lists. These ratings reflect the brand’s quest for best-in-class safety. You can see all of these vehicles and other safe cars, trucks and SUVs at Heyward Allen Toyota dealer serving Athens GA.

Top Safety Picks
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety did extensive testing on every aspect of these vehicles and found them to be as good as advertised. Top Safety Pick Plus designees include the Toyota Prius hatchback, Prius v, RAV4 crossover, Corolla sedan and Camry. Top Safety Picks include the Toyota Yaris iA and Avalon sedans.

Class Leaders
Toyotas are class leaders when it comes to certain safety systems. For instance, both trucks are the only pickups to have eight airbags. It may be small, but the Yaris iA sedan boasts a city autobrake. A suite of crash avoidance systems are now standard on the Corolla, Highlander, RAV4, Prius v and Prius. These avoidance features cost much more on rival vehicles, if they are offered.

Safety On Tap
Toyota collision avoidance systems use a monocular camera and radar to watch the road. An automated steering assist may react if the lane warning goes unheeded. Automatic braking may intervene if the driver doesn’t respond fast enough to a collision warning. Pedestrian detection brakes the car if someone walks in front of the vehicle. Self-regulating high beams dim the light without action by the driver. Does your current ride do all of this? Value your trade.
