In the first frontal test the airbags fired late owing to disconnection of a satellite airbag sensor early in the impact. Toyota re-routed the wiring to the sensor and modified the software in the control unit so that the airbags fired earlier in the event of a disconnection. Euro NCAP allowed a re-test in which the airbags fired as intended despite damage to the wiring harness. Toyota have advised Euro NCAP that these modifications will not be applied to cars already sold. The driver's knees bottomed out the knee airbag and contacted the support bracket. In the pedestrian tests no points were awarded for the protection offered by the leading edge of the bonnet. However, the performance of the bumper and the bonnet suggested that these areas have been designed with pedestrian protection in mind.
