2011 Toyota Corolla Safety

Safety
Safety is a bright spot for the 2011 Toyota Corolla; it performs very well in most crash tests and has a good set of features.

The 2011 Toyota Corolla is a top performer in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, achieving top 'good' ratings in all categories, along with the agency's Top Safety Pick accolade for 2011. And while the federal government hasn't yet tested the Corolla in its revised (and more stringent) tests introduced this model year, in the previous federal testing system, the Corolla achieved four out of five stars overall and five stars in frontal impact.

Its safety feature list is very strong, too. Anti-lock brakes; stability and traction control; front-seat side airbags; full-length side curtain airbags; and active front head restraints remain standard on the Corolla.

With a comprehensive list of features and an impressive set of crash-test ratings, the 2011 Toyota Corolla offers good safety.

Outward visibility is actually quite good in the Corolla—thanks to a high seating position plus a straightforward design in which the beltline doesn't rise too aggressively.
