DETROIT, MI – The 2024 Toyota Camry has earned top honors for safety from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in their latest round of testing. The IIHS awarded the popular family sedan its highest rating of “Top Safety Pick +” after evaluating its crashworthiness and accident prevention technologies.
Camry Excels in Stringent Crash Tests
The Camry underwent the IIHS’s rigorous crash test regimen which simulates a variety of collisions. The midsize sedan earned top marks across the board for its occupant protection in frontal, side, rollover and rear crashes. Its sturdy safety cage, airbags and seat belts worked together to provide excellent shielding for all seating positions.
“The Camry really stood out for its all-around crash protection capabilities,” said IIHS President David Harkey. “It provides peace of mind for family car shoppers concerned about safety.”
Top-Tier Safety Features Come Standard
|Automatic Emergency Braking
|Detects impending forward collisions and applies brakes automatically
|Lane Departure Warning
|Alerts drivers if they are drifting out of the lane
|Adaptive Cruise Control
|Automatically adjusts speed to maintain distance from vehicle ahead
All Camry trim levels come equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense system which includes advanced driver aids like automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control and more. These technologies earned high ratings from IIHS engineers for their effectiveness in preventing common accidents.
“Toyota has made a full suite of active safety equipment standard on the Camry rather than limiting them to only higher trims,” Harkey said. “This demonstrates a real commitment to safety accessibility.”
Along with its strong crash test performance and high-tech safety features, the 2024 Camry met the IIHS criteria for headlight and LATCH child seat anchor accessibility.
All of these merits combined to make the Camry the top performing midsize family sedan for safety next year according to the IIHS’s evaluations. With Americans concerned about the high rate of traffic fatalities, the Toyota Camry aims to provide families some peace of mind with its safety credentials.
