2011 Toyota Avalon Safety

9.0
On Safety
The 2011 Toyota Avalon is a very safe car. All versions, in addition to the requisite standard stability control and side and side-curtain bags, get a rearview camera; the base car's display is in the rearview mirror, and it washes out easily—though opposed to the navigation-system rearview display on more expensive models, at least it's in the right location.

The federal government's NHTSA has yet crash-tested the 2011 Avalon; last year's model, which was structurally related yet had different sheetmetal and different interior appointments, earned a top five stars in both frontal and side impact tests.

The insurance-funded IIHS, however, feels the 2011 Avalon is close enough to the previous model and has extended its top 'good' ratings in frontal offset and side impact to this model. The new Avalon has also earned a top 'good' rating in the IIHS rollover-related roof strength test and has once again been named a Top Safety Pick.

The 2011 Toyota Avalon is likely one of the safest new vehicles you can buy, with all the onboard safety equipment and top-notch occupant protection.
