Toyota has more 2012 IIHS Top Safety Picks than any other brand
Now shoppers considering the best-in-class 53-mpg city rated 2012 Toyota Prius C, can have a little more peace of mind. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named this five-door subcompact hatchback a Top Safety Pick for 2012. It includes numerous standard safety features, such as nine air bags and front seats designed to reduce whiplash injury in a rear-impact collision. Toyota's Star Safety System is also standard, adding traction and stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist.
