      Prius and Highlander won Top Safety Picks +

      Camry was re-tested and now has the Top Safety Pick for 2014

      • Yong Thian Ding

        Camry did the re-test already ? I had probably missed the news … they did really poor with the new Rav4 & new Camry in the offset crash , so poor that it made me disappointed .

        I remember 10 years old design Volvo XC90 passed it easily in same test . :
