The IIHS has tested the Scion iA, and its great news, it received a Top Safety Pick Plus Safety Rating.
Passengers were properly restrained, the airbag opened at the right time, and performed well in the moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests.
"Although many vehicles now have front crash prevention as an option, it is still relatively rare to have the technology standard and unprecedented for a vehicle as inexpensive as the iA. Toyota is one of 10 manufacturers that have committed to making automatic emergency braking standard on all models. IIHS and NHTSA are working with automakers to flesh out the details of the commitment, which was announced last week," the IIHS reports.
