The Toyota vehicles that earned the 2017 Top Safety Pick Award include the Toyota Yaris iA and the Toyota Avalon. The Toyota Corolla was recognized for its improved small overlap crash protection and front crash prevention. The Toyota Prius was recognized for its improved headlights.
To receive the Top Safety Pick Award vehicles must achieve “good” ratings in five crashworthiness tests including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. They must also have an available front crash prevention system and quality headlights. To earn the Top Safety Pick+ award, vehicles must also have a superior or advanced-rated front crash prevention system with automatic braking capabilities. Overall, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety made their requirements tougher for the 2017 award season, introducing the new headlight evaluation.
“At Toyota, our focus remains on the safety and peace of mind of our customers,” said Dino Triantafyllos, Toyota’s North American Chief Quality Officer. “We are proud that our commitment to developing safe and reliable vehicles resulted in such a strong showing in 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards”.
