In a class of safety high-achievers, the last-generation Toyota Camry was mid-pack or worse with respect to the two U.S. organizations that crash-test vehicles (it had received one 'marginal' rating from the IIHS and a combination of three- and four-star ratings from the federal government).

Safety ratings for the 2012 Camry have arrived, and Toyota's turned the tide. It's upgraded and bolstered the safety of the 2012 Camry, achieving both the IIHS' Top Safety Pick award and a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA.

Structurally, Toyota has redone many of the components underneath, with the aim of increasing rigidity and safety. It's quite a feat that in the process, Toyota has cut a total of up to 220 pounds in the Camry—including about 150 pounds even in the base four-cylinder models.

And Toyota clearly hasn't wasted any opportunities for safety bragging rights in the new Camry. It packs a class-leading ten standard airbags, including new front passenger knee bags and rear side airbags for outboard occupants. A blind-spot monitoring system will also be available, as will a rearview camera--but only on some models.

Conclusion

With the most airbags in its class and a reengineered structure, the 2012 Toyota Camry should provide excellent protection.

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.
