New Toyota Corolla didn't excel in crash tests
October 7 , 2013
Toyota's new Corolla didn't excel in the crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and is rated marginal.
It scored good marks in four tests but couldn't get the highest rating that adds a "plus."
This test by the IIHS duplicates an accident that would cause the car to crash into a pole on the side of the driver; reports suggest that the performance was poor and the space of the driver was "seriously compromised by intruding structure." The driver could have injured his left lower leg in a real accident.
Toyota mentioned that the company is attempting to make sure it meets the new test.
