Performance Auto is proud to carry four noteworthy vehicles that topped the IIHS most recent evaluation of the safest small cars, including Ford, Lexus, Toyota and Honda models.
Online PR News – 20-July-2011 – – The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently ranked their top picks for safest small cars in the current market with Toyota, Honda, Ford and Lexus all making the top five. Performance Auto is proud to carry all four of these noteworthy manufacturers.
The 2012 Ford Focus was a clear choice, with its standard Electronic Stability Control, as well as superior front, rear, rollover and side crash test ratings. The 2012 Focus also “meets or exceeds a complex web of global safety regulations” according to its safety engineers. This is evident in the high strength steel that accounts for 51% of the car’s body.
The all-around safe 4-door 2012 Honda Civic also lead the pack with its Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
The fuel-efficient 2011 Lexus 200h features detailed safety innovations like front seat Head Restraint Whiplash Protection systems, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, a Post-Collision Safety System and Traction and Stability Control, to name a few.
The 2011 Toyota Prius is a clear standout. With 51mpg and the best crash test results out of all 13 cars studied, the Prius is a fuel-efficient safety front-runner. An Advanced Airbag System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist, and an Engine Immobilizer are some of the safety features that account for the Prius’ high ratings.
