2011 Toyota Camry Safety

6.0
Safety
The 2011 Toyota Camry family no longer has especially strong safety ratings; it's now surpassed by a number of other models. The Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid get just three stars overall from the federal government, with three-star ratings in both frontal and side crash categories. In the new side pole test, which doesn't yet figure into the Camry's overall rating, the 2011 Camry achieved just two stars.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the 2011 Camry achieves top 'good' ratings in frontal and side tests, as well as in the new roof strength test; 'marginal' results in the agency's seat-based rear-impact test keep the Camry from being a Top Safety Pick, however.

That said, the Camry does come with a very impressive set of safety features, including electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, side-curtain airbags, and a driver-side knee airbag.

The 2011 Toyota Camry has all the safety features mid-size sedan shoppers will seek, but its crash-test ratings are now just decent.

Relative to many rival models, the Camry has excellent visibility, with Drivers of the refreshed 2010 Toyota Camry will likely notice that the modest styling changes made to the Camry increase driver visibility, which was already pretty good. Left Lane News declares that the Toyota Camry affords "great visibility," while ConsumerGuide notes that "styling slightly impedes visibility aft and to the right-rear, but sightlines are clear elsewhere."
