Safety assist
The head of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward facing seat, did not move forward excessively in the frontal impact.
The heads of both dummies were properly contained within the shell of their respective restraints in the side impact.
The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position.
The dangers of doing so without first disabling the airbag are clearly explained in a label which is permanently
attached to the sun visor.
The bonnet offered good protection in most areas likely to be struck by a child's head. Protection of an adult's head
was predominantly good or marginal, as was the protection offered to pedestrians' legs by the bumper and the front
edge of the bonnet.
The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. The dummy readings indicated good protection of
the knees and femurs. Toyota showed that occupants of different sizes and those sat in different seating positions
would be offered a similar level of protection. The car scored maximum points in the side barrier test. In the more
severe side pole impact, protection of the chest was rated as marginal. Likewise, marginal protection was provided
by the front seats and head restraints against whiplash injuries in a rear impact.
Electronic stability control is standard equipment, as is a seatbelt reminder system for the driver and front and rear
passengers.
