Toyota Crash Testing

Automakers like Toyota are constantly building a portion of its fleet of vehicles with the sole purpose of smashing them into other objects. Since it would be more than somewhat dangerous to have humans in these destroyed vehicles, the job has fallen to the venerable crash test dummy. It is truly unfair to call these human analogs, dummies. Toyota engineers have been able to glean more than enough information from these valuable tools to design a few generations-worth of some of the safest cars on the road today. Even with all of the advanced testing technology available, there still have been some limitations during Toyota crash testing sessions.

Toyota Safety Sense

Toyota Safety Sense

One of the hallmarks of a successful automobile company is its ability to build a family of vehicles that will protect its occupants if they are involved in a crash.

The new safety suite is being called Toyota Safety Sense. This new technology is so important that when Toyota was unveiling the new 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid last week, the Toyota presenter mented Toyota Safety Sense first.

Best Toyota Cars on Ice

Best Toyota car on ice

We feel kind of bad about talking about our current blog discussing the best Toyota car on ice. It has been so nice lately, that even mentioning ice on the road is like talking about no-hitter in the dugout, it just isn’t done. That being said, we are in a very weird time of year where there is so much moisture in the air because of melting snow and cold night temperatures, that slippery conditions could still be a concern for a couple of more weeks. Or we may get blasted with a foot of snow in May. There is no way to know. But, whatever happens you will be prepared. After considering the options, we have decided that the best Toyota car on ice is a toss up between the 2015 Toyota RAV4 and 2015 Toyota Sienna. (more…)

Toyota RND Concept to make world debut next week

Toyota RND Concept

Toyota RND Concept

There have been several times where those of us working for the Toyota of Naperville Blog have touted Toyota’s position as a global leader in the automotive industry. Our manufacturing partners have made a big splash in the world of alternative fuels with the Toyota Mirai, the new production car using hydrogen fuel cells. Toyota is also among the industry leaders in offering hybrid vehicles, with at least a mild hybrid version of almost every car or SUV available at Toyota of Naperville. The next big leap Toyota is making is being shown off exclusively to our British cousins next week with the Toyota RND Concept.

UPDATE: As it turns out the Toyota RND Concept is just a joke put on by our friends at Toyota Europe. The Red Nose Day is held every other year in England in March and is concerted national effort to get people to contribute to charity for the day. This is very worthy cause. As Americans we weren’t in on the joke. However, we will still follow up on what comes of this. Sorry for the confusion. (more…)
