The Camry Hybrid, like most Toyotas, does well on the safety scale. It is fitted with a total of seven airbags. Electronic stability control, which Toyota calls Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM), is also standard to modulate the throttle, individual wheel brakes, and even the steering to keep the Camry Hybrid stable on slippery surfaces.

The Camry Hybrid won five stars, the highest rating, in the federal government's crash tests, while a non-hybrid Camry was rated "good" in tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS rated that Camry "marginal" for the rear-impact test only.

Cars.com points out that the "electronic stability system," an option in other Camry models, is fitted as standard on the 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid. The 2010 Camry Hybrid also includes anti-lock brakes as standard equipment. Edmunds summarizes the count of seven airbags, "The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid features standard front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, antilock brakes, stability control and traction control."

Specific to the hybrid, Road & Track notes that "as part of their crashworthiness, hybrids have automatic disconnect of their high-voltage source" and that standard EMS/firefighter training now includes "where to cut into hybrids with minimal hazard."

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2010 Camry Hybrid five stars, its highest rating, in both frontal and side crash safety. It scores almost as high in NHTSA's rollover avoidance test, earning four out of five stars. Edmunds reports that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) "gave the Camry its highest rating of 'Good' for frontal-offset and side collision protection."

Conclusion

The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid offers much better fuel efficiency, and more safety equipment, compared to the standard four-cylinder Camry sedan.

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.
