The 2019 Toyota RAV4 has received the IIHS’ highest rating: Top Safety Pick + when equipped with the headlights available on the RAV4’s Hybrid Limited trim. The RAV4, redesigned for 2019, earned good ratings in six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations. These include the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests.
The RAV4 has a standard front crash prevention system that rates superior in IIHS tests. It prevented collisions in 12 and 25 mph track tests. It also includes a forward collision warning component that meets the criteria established by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
To qualify for a 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must earn good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, as well as an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and a good headlight rating.
