What does a Toyota 5-star safety rating mean?

For the NHTSA crash safety tests, a 5-star scale is used to evaluate a vehicle’s performance. 

The more stars in a particular category, the better the Toyota model performed and the safer it is. 

The IIHS vehicle safety program awards Top Safety picks with a rating criteria of Good to Poor.
