The new Toyota Corolla and RAV4 have both secured a top five-star rating in Euro NCAP’s independent safety testing programme.

The cars completed strongly across the board in the protection given to adult and child occupants and to “vulnerable road users,” such as pedestrians and cyclists, and the effectiveness of the Toyota Safety Sense active safety systems, fitted as standard to all UK models.

The crash test results also demonstrate the designed-in strength of the Toyota New Global Architecture platforms on which the models are built, helping maintain the veracity of the cabin in the event of a collision. The vigorous structures, both for the British-built Corolla Hatchback and Touring Sports and the RAV4 SUV are reinforced in critical areas

The second-generation Toyota Safety Sense package includes a Pre-Collision System which can detect pedestrians in the vehicle’s path in both day and night-time driving and can also recognise cyclists by day. The system scored maximum points in Euro NCAP’s testing at low, city speeds, with collisions being avoided at all test speeds.

These achievements demonstrate the success of Toyota’s commitment to car safety, which its at the heart of its mission to make ever-better cars.
