Nine Toyota, Lexus and Scion Models Earn Institute’s Highest Recognition for Crashworthiness and Front Crash Prevention

Toyota must be doing something right, because once again we rocked the IIHS 2016 review. Lexus, Scion and Toyota took home nine TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards together.


The competition wasn’t easy, since award winners were required to have an available front crash prevention system. That’s on top of performing exceptionally in five crashworthiness tests. Considering that the IIHS increased their standards and requirements, this reward means even more to us.

According to IIHS, automakers were required to meet tougher criteria to be considered for the 2016 awards. For this year’s TOP SAFETY PICK+ awards, the IIHS recognized the addition of Toyota’s pre-collision system to the Avalon and the RAV4, rating both models superior for front crash prevention. The Scion iA, which received an advanced rating for front crash prevention, was also acknowledged as the only low-priced car sold with a standard pre-collision system.

All award winners were required to achieve good ratings in five crashworthiness tests and have an available front crash prevention system. TOP SAFETY PICK+ award winners must also have a superior- or advanced-rated front crash prevention system with automatic braking capabilities


The full list of 2016 Toyota, and Scion TOP SAFETY PICK+ winners are: Toyota Prius VToyota Camry, Toyota Avalon, Toyota RAV4,  and Scion iA.


This is really huge news, and we couldn’t be more proud. View our full New Toyota And Scion Inventory HERE.
