Toyota is known for having some of the safest vehicles out on the road, including the Corolla, Camry, and RAV4. But which one would be right for your drives around San Diego?
To help answer that question, we here at Norm Reeves Toyota San Diego created this review on the safest used cars in San Diego. Read through this informative guide, and contact us if you have any questions.
2015 Toyota Corolla
The 2015 Toyota Corolla is a compact car known for having great fuel economy and straightforward tech features. But it’s also known for having an impressive reliability score (4.5 stars from J.D. Power), making it one of the safest vehicles out on the road.
In fact, it earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). There are many safety features that helped the Corolla earn this award, including a 4-wheel anti-lock braking system and traction and stability controls.
It also has a rearview camera, to better see your surroundings when backing out of a driveway or parking spot.
2015 Toyota Camry
Like the Corolla, the 2015 Toyota Camry earned 4.5 stars from J.D. Power and a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA. However, this midsize sedan also earned a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
A rearview camera comes standard in this model. Upgrade to a higher trim level, and you’ll get advanced driver-assisting technologies like…
- Blind Spot Monitoring: If a vehicle is detected in your blind spot, an icon will flash on the appropriate side mirror, and you’ll hear a beeping sound.
- Pre-Collision Warning: Can apply the brakes if an unavoidable frontal collision is detected.
- Lane Departure Warning: If you start to drift from your lane without using a turn signal, the system will send an audible warning. If you don’t react, it can then adjust the steering to guide you back to your lane center.
2015 Toyota RAV4
The 2015 Toyota RAV4 follows the same route as the Corolla and Camry by earning a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA. Plus, this compact SUV received a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the IIHS.
The RAV4 comes with all the features mentioned in both vehicles above. Also, like the cars above, it has front head restraints, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags. It comes with a driver’s knee airbag, too, for further protection.
To help prevent an accident from occurring, the RAV4 has the driver-assisting features mentioned above, plus Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Automatic High Beams.
The former is for when you’re backing out of a driveway or parking spot. If a vehicle approaches from either side when you’re in reverse, you’ll get a visual and audible warning to stop the car. The latter helps you see better at night. If there’s an approaching car while the high beams are on, the system will automatically turn them off. It’ll then turn them back on when the coast is clear.
