The 2018 Toyota Camry just took home the Top Safety Pick Plus award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The best part is that these ratings were given to the base Toyota Camry, without any add-on safety technology that you have to pay extra for.

The 2018 Toyota Camry now has automatic emergency braking and a forward collision warning system. These safety technology features are only available as add-on packages in most other midsize sedans from other automobile brands.

Under the IIHS rigorous crashworthiness test, the Toyota Camry scored a perfect six out of six, giving it the top classification of “superior.” The lower scores include “advanced,” “basic,” and “none.”

To receive a superior designation, vehicles had to score a minimum of advanced on frontal crash prevention. It also had to receive a minimum score of “acceptable” for its headlights.  In addition, it must also earn a “good” score in these other tests: roof strength, head restraint, moderate overlap front, and small overlap front.

Testing showed that the Toyota Camry was successfully able to come to a full stop at 12 mph and 25 mph to avoid collision.

The Toyota Camry Hybrid trim also has optional adaptive headlights that swivels with the car during a turn. These lights earned the highest “good” score.

Since its inception in 1985, the Toyota Camry has always been regarded as the default “go-to” car for various demographics, including young millennials, soccer moms, and retirees.
