New Toyota Corolla and RAV4 awarded top five-star rating in Euro NCAP safety testing

  • New Toyota Corolla and RAV4 both achieve 5-stars in new, tougher 2019 Euro NCAP testing
  • Thanks to Toyota New Global Architecture platform - GA-C for Corolla and GA-K for RAV4
  • New Toyota Safety Sense 2, standard on all Corolla and RAV4 models
  • Safety is central to Toyota’s business

Launched earlier this year, the 2019 Toyota Corolla and RAV4 have achieved the maximum 5-star vehicle safety rating in the latest and tougher 2019 Euro NCAP test results.

The Corolla and RAV4 achieved excellent results in all 4 Euro NCAP categories (see table below).

The Toyota Corolla’s and RAV4’s crash test performance reflect the fundamental strength of their Toyota New Global Architecture-based platform and body, which make good use of strategic reinforcements and use of high-strength steels to absorb and channel impact forces away from the cabin.

As part of Toyota’s commitment to democratise advanced safety equipment, the new second generation of Toyota Safety Sense is fitted as standard across the full Corolla and RAV4 ranges. This safety pack includes a Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian and cyclist Recognition, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA) with steering control, Automatic High Beam (AHB) and Road Sign Assist (RSA).

The Corolla’s and RAV4’s Pre-Collision System scored maximum points in the tests at low, city speeds, with collisions being avoided at all test speeds. Also at highway speeds, Toyota Safety Sense revealed good performance. When approaching a slower-moving car, collision was avoided at all test speeds. And when approaching a stationary car, or a decelerating car, collision was avoided in most cases and mitigated in others.

The system’s pedestrian and cyclist recognition function also showed good performance as collisions with the pedestrian and cyclist target were avoided in all condition tests, at day time and night time.

This achievement is a clear testimony of Toyota’s commitment to car safety. Toyota puts safety at the heart of its commitment to building ever-better cars, ensuring that the benefits of advanced technologies are not limited to high-end, high-specification models, but are made available across the board.
