2013 Toyota Prius v - IIHS small offset frontal crash test aftermath
2013 Toyota Prius v - Small Offset Frontal Impact Crash test Aftermath Survival space for the driver in the Toyota Prius v was seriously compromised. Like the Camry and IS before it, the A-Pillar collapsed and side curtain airbag deployed too late to offer protection. This allowed the drivers head to slide between the side and front airbags only to hit the front dash. And thus the Prius v earned an IIHS poor rating. Adrian Lund, President of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: "Both Toyota's in this group earned poor ratings. The Camry and the Prius v. Toyota engineers have a lot of work to do to match the performance of their competitors."
