Used Car Safety Report

The Toyota Corolla has been awarded a 1 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Toyota Corolla also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

The Toyota Echo was introduced in 1999. The previous ANCAP assessment, a four star result, was based on a Euro NCAP test of a vehicle fitted with driver and passenger airbags. A passenger airbag was optional, as part of a safety pack, in Australia at the time but is no longer available. ANCAP therefore decided to test a vehicle without the passenger airbag. Dual airbags are standard on Toyota Echoes in New Zealand and the previously published results still apply to those vehicles.


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

A driver’s airbag is standard equipment on the Australian model. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. The front part of the driver's floor was pushed rearwards 109. The clutch pedal moved rearwards by 225mm and the brake pedal moved upwards 88mm, relative to the driver’s seat. The dash moved 2mm towards the driver. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 22mm, upwards 45mm and sideways 16mm, relative to the driver’s seat. The front ("A") pillar moved 26mm rearwards. The width of the driver's doorway shortened by 23mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash high manual effort was required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. There was no passenger head contact. Centre console components were a potential source of injury to the passenger’s right knee.
