Four stars, overall; four stars, frontal; five stars, side
The 2012 Toyota Corolla might not be all that exciting in any way, but it does offer strong safety. The Corolla has performed very well in most crash tests and has a good set of features.
The Corolla is again an IIHS Top Safety Pick for 2012, earning top 'good' results in each crash-test category. And while the federal government hasn't run the Corolla through its full battery of tests, it has earned four (out of five) stars for frontal impact. Safety equipment is typical within the class, with front side airbags, side-curtain airbags, and active front head restraints all standard.With a high seating position and a relatively low beltline, the Corolla offers good outward visibility.
The Corolla remains one of the better picks in this class for the safety-minded.
