Another ANCAP safety review. Another 5-star vehicle.
This time it was the new Toyota Camry’s moment in the spotlight with ANCAP testers praising the way the vehicle held up in both side impact and head on crashes.
“The new Camry enters the Australian market with the maximum 5 star ANCAP safety rating,” 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 headon crash.”
“The Camry remains a popular choice for families and fleet buyers so it is important high levels of safety are offered.”
“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.
This 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all Camry variants – 4 cylinder, V6 and hybrid.
The Toyota Camry is due to go on sale in New Zealand in March 2018. Full details of the technical report are available below.
