Toyota Venza, Lexus RX Earn 'Top Safety Pick'

June 17, 2009

ARLINGTON, VA --- The 2009 Toyota Venza, a midsize SUV, and the 2010 Lexus RX, a midsize luxury SUV, are the newest 2009 Top Safety Pick award winners. 

The award is given by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. 

To qualify for Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must earn the highest rating of "good" in the institute's front, side and rear crash tests and be equipped with electronic stability control. 

Criteria to win the award are tough because the institute's goal is to drive continued safety improvements, such as top crash test ratings and the rapid addition of electronic stability control. ESC is standard on both the Venza and RX. 

"Recognizing vehicles at the head of the class for safety helps consumers distinguish the best overall choices without having to sort through multiple test results," said Institute President Adrian Lund.
