Toyota RAV4 improves in key overlap front crash test

A year after Toyota’s RAV4 crossover was denied an influential top safety rating, an updated design underwent new crash testing this week that engineers promise will deliver high honors and redeem the nameplate’s reputation.

The tests, performed Tuesday by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, assess the performance of the 2015 RAV4 in small-overlap frontal crashes.

Poor results in a July 2013 test disqualified the RAV4 from attaining the IIHS’s coveted Top Safety Pick rating. Toyota engineers pledged at the time to overhaul and make the vehicle stronger so that a mid-cycle refreshing would pass.

Toyota Motor Corp. Chief Safety Technology Officer Secretary Seigo Kuzumaki said the RAV4 scored a “good” in Tuesday’s test, thereby earning the institute’s Top Safety Pick status.


Official results of the latest test won’t be released until December, IIHS spokesman Russ Rader said. The RAV4 needs a small-overlap rating of at least “acceptable” to earn Top Safety Pick.

While declining to confirm results, Rader said they look promising. “You can say that from the initial measurements, it looks like a significant improvement,” Rader said in an email.

Earning a better safety rating would erase a rare blemish on the RAV4’s safety record. The vehicle is the brand’s No. 3 best-selling nameplate and the sixth best-selling U.S. truck through October. Sales rose 26 percent to 223,593 units in the first 10 months.

Toyota has been upgrading several models to enhance small-overlap protection, including the RAV4, Rader said.
