April 1, 2019—The 2019 Toyota Prius and Prius Prime qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Both small cars qualify for the award with standard equipment.

The Prius Prime is a plug-in hybrid with a larger battery than the hybrid Prius, but the two vehicles share a common structure. The two small cars earn good ratings in five IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, and each earns an acceptable rating in the passenger-side small overlap crash test.

Both vehicles come standard with superior-rated front crash prevention systems that avoided collisions in IIHS track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph. Both models feature forward collision warning components that meet the criteria set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
