It’s inevitable: at some point, your teenager will be driving. That’s nerve-wracking enough, but there are a few things you can do to ensure their safety. Driver training is obviously one but putting them behind the wheel of a safe vehicle can also go a long way. Peruzzi Toyota in Hatfield, PA is proud to announce that Toyotas have been named among the safest cars for teen drivers.
The annual list is composed by Consumer Reports and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The rigorous requirements include having features that discourage dangerous driving, four or five stars from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, and above-average reliability and handling. Toyotas rank high in all of those categories – and more.
So, which of them made the “safest” list in 2023 models? The Toyota RAV4 is a leader in the Small SUV category, while the Toyota Highlander is a great pick as a mid-size SUV.
If you’re shopping for a solid used car for your new driver, the Consumer Reports/IIHS points to these particular Toyota models: Toyota Prius (2014), Toyota Avalon or RAV4 (2015 or newer), Toyota Tacoma (2016 or newer). Also included in their list, the Toyota Corolla or Camry (2013 or newer).
The main driver (no pun intended) for making this prestigious list is safety. In that department, Toyota has always made that a priority and is constantly evolving the technology to make it happen. From pedestrian detection and lane departure warnings to automatic braking, Toyotas are among the safest vehicles on the road (no matter your age).
