Toyota Corolla Safety Ratings
When searching for the right sedan for the Avon, Indianapolis, and Plainfield areas, we know that efficiency and comfort are definitely going to be concerns. However, safety is equally—and, in some cases, more—important.
The 2018 Toyota Corolla has the safety ratings to prove how safe it is. The Andy Mohr Toyota team has written this review just to show you.
2018 Corolla Safety Awards
In order to determine just how safe a vehicle is, it must go through rigorous crash testing.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) are both regarded as leading safety authorities. Their crash tests are thorough enough to truly put a car to task.
So, it says something that the 2018 Toyota Corolla has been awarded both a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA as well as a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK from the IIHS.
The first ingredient that helps the Corolla earn these awards is its rigid safety structure, which employs the following reinforcements:
- Energy-absorbing crumple zones
- Side-impact door beams
- Head-impact protection structure
- High-tensile-strength steel body panels
- Energy-absorbing collapsible steering column
With all these different fortifications in place, the cabin of the Corolla is uniquely suited to absorb some collision forces while rebuffing others—and that means that passengers avoid the worst of them.
The Star Safety System™
Optimized handling is something of a necessity if you intend to stay safely on course, even when the roads are less than pleasant. Fortunately, the Corolla comes with the Star Safety System™. This is comprised of the following features:
- Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control
- Traction Control
- Electronic Brake-force Distribution
- Brake Assist
- Smart Stop Technology
The first couple features in this suite work to reduce wheelspin and smartly distribute power to your wheels. This ensures that you maintain wheel-grip on slick roads.
The other features optimize your stopping power, so your brakes are equally responsive and effective.
2018 Toyota Corolla Smart Safety
The Star Safety System™ is definitely effective. However, the 2018 Corolla also features a suite of intuitive safety technology. This is called Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P).
TSS-P utilizes cameras and sensors to actually monitor the road around you. If it senses impending collisions at any time, it can either send warnings or act autonomously to prevent them.
This smart and self-sufficient system is no replacement for driver judgment. However, it can heighten your awareness in an exceptionally valuable way—and this is all thanks to the following features:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Automatic High Beams
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Test Drive a 2018 Toyota Corolla
Those 2018 Toyota Corolla safety ratings may be pretty enticing, but they’re not all this car has to offer. Avon, Indianapolis, and Plainfield drivers will also have exceptional comfort and efficiency.
The best way to learn about all these other features is to get behind the wheel.
