Midsize Sedan Safety Reaches New Heights with the 2018 Toyota Camry

We car buyers have many different reasons for making purchase decisions. It may be the car’s powertrain that sways us, or the design of the sheetmetal. Of all the millions of variables, there’s a personal, practical formula we attempt to define as we research and test drive; a balance between wants and needs wrapped up in the significance of a $30,000 purchase.

Yet there are a few features on everyone’s list – and one such must-have is safety. Good ratings are a universal must-have, and when organizations such as the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) come out with improved scores on a redesigned vehicle, automakers hope that it will improve sales and bolster the brand’s reputation with consumers.

So it is with Toyota and the 2018 Camry. As a part of its recent 2018 model changes, improvements have earned the top-selling sedan an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ designation. The award comes due to changes made to the front crash prevention system (which is also now standard), and to all available headlights. This, in addition to already strong scores in other categories, put the Camry over the top.

To earn the Top Safety Pick+, a vehicle must have good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests: small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints. A vehicle must also score an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention, and an acceptable or good headlight rating.

As such, the Camry’s standard front crash prevention system is now rated superior, thanks to the addition of an automatic braking system that brought the car to a complete stop during testing. In addition, the Camry avoided a collision during tests at 12 mph and 25 mph.

The Camry’s standard LED headlights earned an acceptable headlight rating, as did headlights available on the XLE and XSE models. The adaptive headlights on the Camry Hybrid earned a good score. The institute’s headlight evaluation scores on a poor, marginal, acceptable, and good scale. According to the IIHS, engineers measure the reach of a vehicle's headlights as the vehicle travels straight and on curves during straightaways, gradual left/right curves, and sharp left/right curves.

      I feel like this video isn't as accurate as it should be because, the video only shows one test crash per vehicle. Not that, that's fine, but what should've been done is have three different crash tests to get a better accurate number. Everyone of these Camrys passed the 'head on' but the ones that were T-boned failed. To me the numbers that were recorded per one crash aren't as accurate as they need to be
