5 Toyota Models That Earned 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Awards


We use our vehicles for everything, from daily work commutes to weekend runs for ice cream. We camp out of them. We drive our kids to soccer practice with them. We let our dogs slobber outside our vehicle’s windows when flooring it up I-98. We love and take care of our cars, and in return, we expect them to care about us. And there’s no better vehicle to rely on than a Toyota.

That’s because the engineers at Toyota know how important safety is to every single driver—and these five 2017 Toyota models prove it. All of the below cars and SUVs have not only passed the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) battery of tests, but they’ve also earned places atop the organization’s Top Safety Pick+ list. Bravo!

If you’re looking for an incredibly reliable and comfortable car to commute in every day, the 2017 Corolla has a lot to offer, specifically by providing what you want from a sedan: predictable. This sleek car comes with the standard but incredibly thorough suite of Toyota safety features, including the following:

  • Seven advanced airbags
  • ABS
  • Stability control
  • Daytime running Lights
  • Side mirrors with integrated turn signals
  • Height-adjustable pedals
  • Tow hooks on both ends
  • A convenient system that levels your headlights and alerts you if you’re drifting outside your lane.

These features even appear in almost all modern Toyota models.

Toyota Prius

The overwhelmingly successful Toyota hybrid hatchback has shown its colors again by earning its place as one of the safest vehicles on the road. Following in the steps of the gas-powered Corolla, the Prius comes with all the same standard features, and the automatic systems are displayed on the car’s incredibly handy computer, which is built directly into the spaceship-like dashboard. For a quiet, fuel-efficient and five-star-rated hybrid, the 2017 Prius is your best bet.

Toyota RAV4

Slightly larger than a Prius, and with a unique hybrid option, the all-new 2017 RAV4 is perhaps the safest compact SUV available. This Toyota model comes standard with Hill Start Assist, and a supremely functional Trailer Sway Control, allowing it to haul like a full-size SUV without sacrificing the natural efficiency of its smaller crossover frame.

Toyota Camry

You’ve probably seen hundreds and thousands of Camrys around town because this Toyota car is to the road what the Prom King or Queen was to your high school. The 2017 Camry is an aerodynamic sedan that’s equipped with the full suite of safety features, including ten airbags, conveniently accessible lower LATCH anchors, and a lane-departure warning system to help you remain safe while cruise-controlling on long trips or taking the scenic route home after a busy day at work.

Toyota Highlander

One of only three mid-sized SUVs to earn a Top Safety Pick+ stamp, the 2017 Highlander makes for a safe vehicle you and your family can count on. With both Toyota Safety Sense and the Star Safety system, the high-tech Highlander offers a comprehensive collection of collision-aversion features and a suite of automatic stability and break assistance. Large enough to hold everything you need, and safe enough to haul around the people you love, the Toyota Highlander can handle any winding road with grace and style.
