2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid Safety
Facing strong criticism after its acceleration-linked recalls, Toyota has done everything in its power to ensure that its new vehicles are as safe as possible. The 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid is no different; this vehicle has been outfitted with the most high-end safety features that Toyota could possibly cram into the car's mid-size build.
The Toyota Camry Hybrid comes standard with antilock disc brakes, motion control, and several other important safety components. The car has been furnished with airbags at practically every location imaginable, including front seat side airbags and a driver's knee airbag. The Camry Hybrid also possesses slightly more advanced safety systems than some of Toyota's more traditional cars. Unlike the classic 2011 Camry, the Camry Hybrid comes standard with a Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management system; whereas the regular Camry features separate traction and stability control, the VDIM system combines these two features to create a smooth, meticulously-regluating motion control feature.
The Toyota Camry Hybrid has performed decently in various safety testings. During its government crash test, the 2011 Camry Hybrid earned three out of five stars in overall frontal and side impact safety. These statistics might not seem very impressive to potential car buyers; however, you must keep in mind that the government has recently made its safety standards far more rigorous than they were before. The Camry Hybrid also earned the highest possible rating of 'Good' for frontal and side impact protection from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
