Toyota takes over IIHS Top Safety Pick award list!

To have any of our new Toyota in N Charlotte as an IIHS Top Safety Pick is a great accomplishment, but an even greater feat is having fifteen on the list for 2013! Toyota and Scion dominated the IIHS Top Safety Pick list, placing in categories such as:

  • Mini cars
  • Small cars
  • Midsize moderately priced cars
  • Large family cars
  • Midsize SUVs
  • Large Pickups
  • Minivans and more!

The IIHS Top Safety Pick ratings are based on high speed front and side crash tests, a rollover test and seat/head restraint evaluations. Once these performance tests are conducted, the vehicles are given a rating of good, acceptable, marginal or poor. To make it as an IIHS Top Safety Pick, the vehicle must earn a “good” in all three categories. So, as you can see, it’s nothing to take lightly and Toyota has put a lot of work into each one of its vehicles to make them safe!
