For many car shoppers, safety is a top priority. And, with so much advanced technology, cars are safer than ever. That is why the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) scores individual models on numerous safety attributes to help discerning shopper find the best of the best.

The IIHS has two levels of safety awards: Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+. To earn the Top Safety Pick accolade, a vehicle has to achieve the top Good rating in all crash tests. In addition, it has to earn an Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention technology.

Toyota’s Top Safety Picks this year include the Toyota Yaris iA and Avalon.

To earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating, a vehicle also has to achieve a Good or Acceptable rating for its headlights. This year, Toyota brought home five Top Safety Pick+ honors. These models include the Toyota Prius v, Camry, RAV4, Prius, and Corolla.

Ever since the IIHS introduced its Top Safety Pick awards in 2006, Toyota has worked hard to make sure as many of its models are eligible for this award as it can. The Top Safety Pick+ designation was introduced in 2013 to give the best of the best their own category.

Come check out all of these excellent and safe Toyota models today at Hurlbert Toyota.

Toyota Tundra

Toyota Tundra

Cars.com released their most recent list of “Most American” cars recently, which names vehicles that use over 75% domestically sourced parts and are assembled and sold in the United States. Sadly, only 10 cars were able to make the list this year. That’s the fewest in history. What is the brand with the most vehicles on the list, you ask? Toyota!

With four vehicles on the “Most American” list, Toyota takes the cake this Fourth of July.

The Toyota Camry, Sienna, Tundra, and Avalon fit the criteria of using American parts and labor thanks to assembly plants in Georgetown, KY, Lafayette, Indiana, and San Antonio, TX.

At Hurlbert Toyota, we’re glad to represent a company that is so committed to the US auto industry and creating new jobs in our country.
