SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' rear impact; 'acceptable,' roof strength

Not yet tested

Rearward visibility is slightly hampered by thick roof pillars, but not enough to necessitate a rearview camera.

With good crash-test results and an extensive safety-feature list, the 2011 Toyota 4Runner leaves a positive safety impression.

The 4Runner has achieved top 'good' ratings in frontal, side, and rear impact tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), though it scored only 'acceptable' in the new IIHS roof strength test. The model still hasn't been tested by the more stringent federal NCAP test program that's been introduced for 2011.

All V-6 4Runner models get electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) for safe uphill starts, and all 4WD models get Downhill Assist Control, to help maintain a slow, steady speed down steep slopes. Also newly available is Safety Connect, a system that's similar to General Motors' OnStar, bringing 24-hour roadside assistance and allowing location of your stolen vehicle or emergency location for accidents.

Some models include a small screen built into the rearview mirror that provides a fish-eye camera view backward for parking assistance. All 4Runners also come with eight standard airbags, including front side bags, side-curtain bags for the second and third rows, and front knee bags for the driver and passenger.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
