Compare with other cars in the Large MPV category

The Picnic gives good all round crash protection and, even though it was one of the smaller of the 'large MPVs' tested in June 1999, it ran a close second to the group leader, the Renault Espace. Euro NCAP noted, however, that knee and upper leg protection needed improving for the driver and front passenger in a frontal impact, while the driver's feet were also at risk. Side-impact protection was good but there was a small risk of chest injury for the driver. Thought had been given to child protection including the dangers of the passenger airbag for an infant, and the type of rear belts fitted. All the more surprising, then, that Toyota do not recommend to buyers any particular model of child seat for this car.
