Toyota Earns a Total of Eleven IIHS 2018 Awards

2018 Subaru Outback Crash Test IIHS

2018 Subaru Outback Crash Test IIHS

This year, 62 vehicle models earned the institute's top safety pick award. "Toyota and Lexus remain committed to providing safe and reliable vehicles and we're proud to have Toyota Safety Sense and Lexus Safety System+ as standard equipment on nearly every new model in our lineup", said Chris Nielsen, executive vice president of product support and chief quality officer of Toyota Motor North America.

To qualify for a 2018 TSP award, vehicles must have Good ratings in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, and roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention, and an Acceptable or Good headlight rating. By concentrating the force of a crash into a smaller area, on only one corner of the auto, this test can be especially revealing when it comes to showing how a vehicle's cabin structure absorbs a severe impact.

The IIHS is also raising its standards for headlights. "The difference between a headlamp that rates as good as far as how far down the road you can see and one that we rate as poor, it literally is night and day and we think it's important that manufacturers improve how lamps light up the road because the most serious crashes happen at night".

An additional 47 vehicles earned a Top Safety Pick rating.

Automakers have pledged to make it a standard feature by 2022.

"Cars are safer now than they ever have been", Lund said.

No minivans or pickup trucks received a Top Safety Pick Plus award.
