The Corolla achieved a good three-star rating and came close to gaining four stars. The car's structure performed well in the frontal crash and the driver's door operated normally after the impact. In the side-impact test, the car's weakest aspect was protection for the driver's chest. That said, it was good enough to meet legislation to be introduced for new models in October. Pedestrian protection earned two stars. The bumper area needed work to improve protection, however.
