Guess this would be expected....
Prius V Overall IIHS Rating
Side Impact with images
Rear passengers side curtain doesn't seem to be all that effective.....
looks good thank you.
I'm wondering why it got the top safety pick. The side impact effectiveness seems really troubling.
Maybe the cars it was rated against were worse....
I agree the side passenger airbag is very disconcerting. I suspect that the Prius v will not receive a good rating from NHSTA which has implemented the new 5 star rating with higher standards for safety than IIHS. I noticed that IIHS has recommended other cars that performed poorly in NHSTA's tests.
Two things seem to help:
1. sit in a more upright position
2. move back seat forward
