These safety improvements lead the Camry to receive a Top Safety Rating from the IIHS after a series of crash tests. American consumers themselves have given their own recommendation to the Camry – it is on its way to being the best-selling car in America for the 12th straight year. Toyota of Killeen carries a large inventory of 2014 Camrys on our lot, so come visit us today to give the Camry your own rating.
The 2014 Camry was able to earn the recommendation from Consumer Reports only after receiving the Top Safety Rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The IIHS puts every new model on American roads through a series of crash tests to reduce the losses that come after an accident. What this really means is that insurance companies are testing cars to determine how much they can charge for your insurance premiums. Safer cars will help reduce your premiums, so we are glad the 2014 Toyota Camry received the Top Safety Rating from the IIHS. The IIHS gave their very best rating of Top Safety Pick+ to two other cars available at Toyota of Killeen – the Prius and the Highlander.
Far fewer vehicles met the institute’s new criteria after it raised the bar to require “good” or “acceptable” performance in the small overlap front crash test for Top Safety Pick and a front crash prevention system for Top Safety Pick+. Compared to 130 honorees from across the auto industry last year, just 39 vehicles met the tougher standards to earn the 2014 awards.
