All Camry models include 10 airbags, with front passenger knee bags and rear side airbags for outboard occupants, as well as electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, and a Smart Stop Technology brake-override system.
Safety options include a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, a forward-collision warning system, lane departure alert, and automatic high beams.
The 2016 Toyota Camry has earned very good crash-test safety ratings.
In tests conducted by the IIHS, the Camry gets the top "Good" scores in all categories, plus an "Advanced" rating for front crash protection, earning it Top Safety Pick+ honors. That reflects constant structural improvement because the 2013 Camry received a "Poor" rating for the small frontal overlap test and the 2014 model got an "Acceptable" rating in that test.
Despite the excellent IIHS ratings, the 2016 Camry misses out on top federal ratings. While it gets a five-star overall rating, its four-star frontal results (as well as four-star side pole results, which aren't factored into its five-star side score) add up to a vehicle that's not quite in the same echelon as the Honda Accord or Subaru Legacy.
