Toyota's Camry performs poorly on new crash test
Through November, Toyota has sold more than 373,000 Camrys in the U.S. It is the top-selling car in the U.S. almost every year.
Both the Prius v and Camry performed well in moderate front-end crash tests, as well as side impact, roof strength and rear impact tests, the institute said.
Moderately priced midsize cars outperformed midsize luxury cars in the new test, the institute said. The only midsize luxury cars to earn a "Top Safety Pick-Plus" award were the Acura TL and Volvo S60.
IIHS is a nonprofit research group funded by auto insurance companies. It develops crash tests to cut deaths, injuries and property damage losses from car and truck crashes.
