The Glass Pit
00:54
We conduct crash tests on our glass pit, so we can observe collisions from many angles. Footage from below our vehicles via a translucent floor allows us to analyze collisions to the 1,000th of a second. This helps answer a very important question: Can we alter the design of our car bodies to withstand even greater force from collisions to provide even higher driver safety? Our commitment to safety drives us to perform over 1,500 crash tests every year with Toyota vehicles. That's the length we go to help protect you. That's what makes it a Toyota.
