23: Toyota Corolla
In addition to the Civic, the Corolla is another iconic car of the compact market. The Corolla has dominated a segment that the car was responsible for developing. The primary drivers of the Corolla are first-timers who need a safe vehicle, but this also means that the driving practices are a bit riskier. While Toyota has innovated with plenty of safety features there are a record 3,430 fatal crashes over a five-year period.
Does this mean that the Corolla is not a safe car? Not at all, but the model does have more fatalities than the average vehicle on the road. Toyota has done a great job of improving the safety of the Corolla models over the past few decades, and the Corolla is one of the most popular cars on the road.
