Toyota and Lexus remain committed to providing safe and reliable vehicles and we re proud to have Toyota Safety Sense and Lexus Safety System+ as standard equipment on almost every new model in our lineup," said Chris Nielsen, executive vice president of product support and chief quality officer of Toyota Motor North America.

To qualify for a 2018 TSP award, vehicles must have Good ratings in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, and roof strength and head restraint tests, as well as Advanced or Superior rating for front crash prevention, and an Acceptable or Good headlight rating.
