The new Corolla achieved these strong scores by subscribing to Toyota's high standards for active and passive safety.

Multiple-load path structures have been applies to the front and the sides, to minimize cabin deformation in the event of a collision by effectively dispersing impact load. Additionally, pedestrian protection has been improved by adopting numerous energy absorbing components.

The new Corolla is equipped with 7 SRS airbags a driver's knee airbag, twin-chamber front side airbags and full-length side curtain shield airbags.

All seats feature three-point, ELR (Emergency Locking Retractor) seatbelts locking up when excessive load is applied. Driver and front passenger seatbelts further benefit from a pre-tensioner and force limiter function.

The Corolla is fitted with Whiplash Injury Lessening (WIL) front seats to reduce whiplash injuries during rear end collisions. Should a rear impact of sufficient velocity occur, the seat structure allows the occupant's upper body to sink backwards, matching the movement of the lower body to that of the head to reduce the risk of a whiplash injury.

The vehicle is equipped as standard with ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC) and an emergency brake signal function.
