When it comes to safety, the 2010 Toyota Corolla should boost confidence levels, as the car scores highly both in crash tests and available safety features.

Aside from commendable engineering, there are a number of safety features that work together to improve occupant protection. The 2010 Toyota Corolla comes standard with anti-lock brakes, stability and traction control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, and active front head restraints.

During independent crash tests, the Toyota Corolla scores very well. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the federal government's testing agency, gives the 2010 Toyota Corolla four out of five stars for most impacts, and a full five stars for front side impacts. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards the Corolla its highest rating, "good," for the frontal offset impact test.

Another important aspect of driving safety is outward visibility, and on the Toyota Corolla, “outward visibility is good,” according to ConsumerGuide. Most reviewers agree, which is why the 2010 Toyota Corolla rates highly for driver visibility.

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.
