Top Safety Scores for Toyota Prius Models

2016 Prius

Safety is important, obviously, and we know this not only because common sense dictates it, but also because so many of our customers here at Palmer’s Toyota come through asking about which Toyota models offer the best safety features and will best take care of their family should they ever unexpectedly get into an accident. Knowing all this, it should come as no surprise that we’re incredibly grateful to see that both the 2016 Toyota Prius and the forthcoming Toyota Prius Prime are doing so well in crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration.

The Toyota Prius Prime, for those that weren’t aware, is the next-generation Prius plug-in model that will replace the current version in the forthcoming year, and already it’s performing rather well in crash tests. The NHTSA recently tested both it and the current Prius, and they awarded both top five-star overall ratings.

Furthermore, the 2016 Toyota Prius has been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS recently thanks to its across-the-board “Good” crash test results, as well as its “Superior” rating for its crash-avoidance system.

Both of these rankings were slight improvements over last year’s models, which shows how much the Toyota brand is committed to improving the safety of their vehicles not only for those customers in and around Daphne, AL, but all over the world.

With top safety scores, loads of modern safety technologies and high-quality Goodyear tires, all Toyota models tend to be among the safest in their segments, but for now, the new Prius and Prius Prime models have taken center stage with their elite crash test scores from the two most respected safety organizations in the industry. As we said, safety is important, and these are cars that respect that. Visit our Mobile, AL Toyota dealers to find out more about these models today!
