2017 Toyota Corolla

Each year, the IIHS names Top Safety and Top Safety+ Picks in all vehicle classes. This year, the IIHS named the Toyota Corolla as the 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ for its class. This means that the Toyota Corolla is one of the safest cars on the road today. If you want a safe, small car, the Toyota Corolla is as safe bet.

Why the Corolla Was Selected

The safety rating shows that the Corolla stands out against other cars in its class. It received a “Good” rating on five crashworthiness tests and acceptable scores for both headlights and ease of use for child seat anchors. While those are outstanding scores, it excelled with crash avoidance and mitigation, thanks to its front crash prevention capabilities.

With all of the technology available, it is no wonder that the vehicle performs so well in safety tests. The 2017 Corolla is equipped with Standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) technology. This technology includes a Pre-Collision System. The system has Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist. This makes it easy to stay on the road without any incidents.

The vehicle also has an Automatic High Beam system. This system includes standard automatic high beams, which increase visibility during the nighttime. The system automatically detects other vehicles and switches to low beams. Then, it turns back to high beams once the vehicle passes.

You can also use Dynamic Radar Cruise Control when you’re driving this vehicle. It utilizes a forward-sensing radar and camera to detect your speed and distance to other vehicles. Then, the system adjusts your speed. That keeps you safe while allowing you to take your foot off the gas. If you like to use cruise control, you will certainly benefit from this system.

If you want to stay safe when you’re on the road, head over to Warrenton Toyota in Warrenton, VA, and test drive a Toyota Corolla. You will feel safe, secure, and confident when you get behind the wheel of a Corolla.
