Toyota Camry scores 5 stars

The new Toyota Camry has been awarded the the top safety rating by ANCAP.

The organisation welcomed the latest Camry model’s standard fitting of autonomous emergency brakes (AEB) and active lane support system.

“We’re pleased to see Toyota maintain its high level of safety with manufacturing of the Camry having now switched from local production to a Japanese-built model,” ANCAP CEO James Goodwin said.

“Maximum points were scored in the destructive pole and side impact crash tests, and a high score of 15.16 points out of a possible 16 points was achieved in the frontal offset test which replicates a head on crash.”

RACQ’s Head of Technical and Safety Policy Steve Spalding encouraged motorists looking to buy a car to purchase the safest vehicle they could afford.

“We know the Camry is a popular choice for many Australian families, and it’s great to see their newest model adds to the growing list of five-star performers,” Mr Spalding said.

“Along with high levels of crash protection, consumers shopping for a new car should also be looking for models that have advanced crash avoidance features”.
