Euro NCAP allowed a side impact retest after Toyota modified the door following a door opening in the first side impact test. The GS300 put in a sound all-round performance loosing just over one point in the frontal impact test. The body shell proved to be extremely strong suffering minimal deformation in the frontal impact and providing good levels of protection for the adults. The restraint systems include dual-stage frontal airbags, driver and passenger knee airbags, front safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters. An intelligent seat belt reminder system is fitted for the driver and front passenger. The child protection offered by the car was very good. The level of protection offered to pedestrians and other vulnerable road users was judged to be fairly good overall.
