Carson Toyota Offers Top Safety Pick Award-Winning 2010 Corolla
CARSON, Calif. – Carson Toyota is proud to announce that the 2010 Scion xB and the 2010 Toyota Corolla have earned Top Safety Pick awards for the second straight year.
The Scion xB and Toyota Corolla bring the number of small cars consumers have to choose from that earn the Institute’s highest safety designation to seven. To qualify for Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn the highest rating in the Institute’s front, side, rollover, and rear impact tests, and be equipped with electronic stability control.
“Top Safety Pick recognizes the vehicles that afford buyers the best overall protection in common crashes,” said Institute president Adrian Lund. “With more top performers, there’s no reason to buy a small car with less than stellar crash test ratings.”
The xB and Corolla are the first Toyota models to earn Top Safety Pick since the Institute tightened the criteria to win by adding the new rollover test for 2010.
To earn a good rollover rating, a roof has to support the equivalent of 4 times the vehicle’s weight compared with the current federal standard of 1.5. In the Institute’s test, the xB’s roof withstood a force equal to 6.8 times the car’s weight. The Corolla’s roof supported 5.1 times the car’s weight. The xB and Corolla also earned the 2009 Top Safety Pick award.
