How safe is the Prius and is it kid friendly?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com Holly, As far as crash test ratings for the Prius go, you can check out www.nhtsa.gov as well as MSN Autos (all the results are from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration). Here is a breakdown: http://autos.msn.com/research/vip/safety.aspx?year=2006&make=Toyota&model=Prius It's hard to answer your question when it comes to it being "kid friendly" because I don't know how many kids you have or what you are wondering about specifically. I can tell you that Motherproof.com has some great articles on the car and even awarded the Prius 1st place in their Most Mom Friendly cars list. Good luck!
