The new Toyota Auris has been awarded a best possible 5-star crash safety rating from Euro NCAP. The strong body structure, which allows minimal cabin intrusion, and the fitment of up to nine airbags add up to outstanding passenger safety. In particular, the combination of a driver knee airbag and a collapsible steering column led to the 35 point, 5-star result for adult occupant protection.


A key benefit to Auris customers with young children are the standard ISOFIX anchorage points on the outer rear seats. These helped gain a four-star rating for child occupant protection. Euro NCAP also awarded the Toyota Auris a class-leading three out of four-star rating for pedestrian protection.

Auris also recorded top results in the side impact and pole impact tests, plus an overall 94 per cent score in the frontal impact test.

Andrea Formica, Senior Vice-President, Sales & Marketing & After Sales, Toyota Motor Europe: “We have always sought to ensure that every new Toyota enjoys the highest levels of safety.

“We are very confident that the new Auris will impress customers with its safety performance combined with the distinctive design and engaging driving dynamics.”

The detailed Euro NCAP results show that the Toyota Auris scored 35 points for passenger protection (maximum: 37 points), 37 points for child protection (max: 48 points) and 21 points for pedestrian protection (max. 27). With this result, the Toyota Auris qualifies amongst the safest vehicles in its segment.

The new Toyota Auris is on sale in the UK from 1 February, 2007.
