DETROIT (AP) — An insurance industry group says Toyota's Camry did poorly on a new crash test this year, disqualifying it from the top safety rating.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Camry a "Poor" rating on the new test, which measures how well people are protected when the front corner of a car hits another car or an object.
The Camry is the best-selling car in the U.S. It did well on the institute's other four tests and earned a "Top Safety Pick" rating. But it failed to get a "Top Safety Pick-Plus" rating.
Ten moderately priced midsize cars got the institute's highest rating. They include the Honda Accord, Chrysler 200, Dodge Avenger, Ford Fusion, Kia Optima, Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kashai and the Volkswagen Passat.
