The 2014 Toyota Corolla got a less than stellar rating on the IIHS small overlap front crash test.
The all-new Corolla earned just a “marginal” rating on the test, which replicates what would happen if a vehicle strikes another vehicle or an object like a tree or a utility pole. According to IIHS, the Corolla’s structural performance was poor and the driver’s space was seriously compromised in the test.

It’s not all bad news though for the Corolla. It did receive a good rating in the other crash tests which is good enough to give the Corolla a “Top Safety Pick” rating. By not getting a good on the small overlap front crash test, the Japanese automaker won’t be able to boast that its new Corolla is a “Top Safety Pick+.”
