As many of us sat down to a banquet of ham or turkey with all the trimmings, the folks at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety were busy checking off the list of 2015 Toyota and Scion models that passed safety tests with a Top Safety Pick rating or higher.
When all the awards were passed out, Toyota Motors had received more awards from the IIHS than any other automaker and had earned bragging rights to the largest number of models with the Institute’s highest Top Safety Pick+ honor. The 2015 Sienna was the only minivan to be distinguished with a Top Safety Pick+ designation.
“At Toyota, our focus remains on the safety and peace of mind of our customers,” said Dino Triantafyllos, chief quality officer for Toyota North America. “We’re pleased the IIHS has recognized the strong and improved safety performance of our vehicles in a range of crash tests.”
Here’s the list of award-winning 2015 models you will want to keep in mind as you begin your car search in the new year. We’d love to help you get started right here at Krause Toyota/Scion.
