New 2010 Toyota 4Runner Earns Highest Frontal Crash Test Rating from IIHS

TORONTO, On, March 12, 2010 - The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) today announced that the new 2010 Toyota 4Runner mid-size sport utility vehicle (SUV) has earned its highest ranking of “good” in their frontal offset high-speed crash ratings.
IIHS frontal crashworthiness evaluations are based on results of 40 mph frontal offset crash tests. A vehicle's overall frontal evaluation is based on measurements of intrusion into the occupant compartment, driver seat test dummy injury severity, and the level of restraint system dummy movement during the test.  By comparison, frontal crash testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is performed at 35 mph.
The IIHS is an independent non-profit research and communications organization funded by auto insurance companies.
All Toyota and Lexus models meet or exceed the safety requirements of the federal government and the NHTSA.
