Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Toyota showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different statures and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, the Corolla demonstrated good protection of all body regions and scored maximum points. Even in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest was adequate and that of other body regions was good. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. Clear information is provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and the system was rewarded. Special care was needed to fit the ISOFIX probes of the group I child restraint in the rear outboard seats. Otherwise, the restraints for which the car is designed could be installed without a problem. From September, the information in the user manual will be revised and the rating reflects this revision. Physical installation of child restraints in earlier cars is unaffected but care should be taken as information in the manual may not be as clear.


The bumper scored maximum points with good protection of pedestrians' legs in all areas tested. However, the front edge of the bonnet provided predominantly poor protection to the pelvis of a struck pedestrian. The bonnet surface was mostly good or adequate in the level of protection it offered to the head of a struck pedestrian.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. The front and rear seats are protected by a standard-fit seatbelt reminder system. There is no speed limitation device on the Corolla.
