Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Toyota Avalon has a score of 80, implying a 0.042% chance of driver death (3.8% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Toyota Avalon has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0422% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.8168%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0422% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.8168% chance of being injured.

Toyota's Safety Sense active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. All trims and versions of the 2022 Toyota Avalon include the following active safety systems: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD), Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA), and Blind Spot Monitor.

Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but others may also improve safety. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you. Optional Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS) points head lamps towards where the vehicle is heading, better lighting the road ahead.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
