Used Car Safety Report

The Toyota Yaris 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 Yaris 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 tested model of Toyota Yaris was introduced in Australia during 2005.

The Yaris scored 13.38 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was marginal for the driver.

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.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. ABS/EBD brakes are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a knee airbag for the driver are available in a safety pack that is recommended by ANCAP. The tested vehicle did not have these features but a Yaris with them was awarded 5 stars by Euro NCAP (see separate ANCAP report). The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt.

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 tested vehicle had airbags that come with an optional safety pack in Australia.


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.

Dual front airbags and ABS/EBD brakes are standard. Side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a knee airbag for the driver are available in a safety pack that is recommended by ANCAP.
