ANCAP has announced the maximum 5-star safety rating has been bestowed upon the new 2018 Toyota Camry.
With an impressive overall score of 36.16 out of a possible 37 points the new Camry is flying high with success.
ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Mr 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.”
The Camry also scored well for the Pedestrian Protection testing. A score of 27.23 out of 36 points was recorded with the only drawback being the base of the windscreen and windscreen pillars scoring marginal or poor which is comparable to vehicles in this segment.
“It is encouraging to see the Camry fitted as standard with an autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system which operates at city and highway speeds, as well as an 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,” Mr Goodwin said.
All Toyota Camry variants – 4 cylinder, V6 and hybrid – from November 2017 onwards are included in the 5 star ANCAP safety rating which puts yet another feather in the cap of the popular model.
