Carson Toyota Proud To Announce, Toyota 2010 Venza and 2010 Highlander Earn Top Safety Pick Status
June 7, 2010 – Carson, Calif. – Carson Toyota is proud to announce, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has announced that the all-new 2010 Toyota Highlander and the all-new 2010 Toyota Venza have each earned “Top Safety Pick” status.
The “Top Safety Pick” is the highest safety designation awarded by the IIHS. To qualify for the award, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of “good” in the IIHS’ front, side, rollover, and rear impact tests and be equipped with electronic stability control.
“We’re very excited and proud that the 2010 Toyota Venza and Toyota Highlander have both earned the Top Safety Pick status,” said General Manager, Marty Brylski. “Both vehicles offer families numerous safety features, while being both fuel efficient and economical.”
The IIHS testing was made more stringent in 2010 with the addition of the rollover test. To earn a “good” rollover rating, a roof must be able to support the equivalent of four times the vehicle’s weight compared with the current federal standard of 1.5. In the IIHS testing, the Highlander roof withstood a force equal to 4.74 times its vehicle weight. The Venza’s roof withstood 4.70 times its vehicle weight.
All Toyota models meet or exceed the safety requirements of the federal government and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The all-new 2010 Toyota Venza and the all-new 2010 Toyota Highlander are currently available to purchase.
