Adult occupant

In the frontal impact, the passenger compartment remained stable. 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 sizes and to those sat in different positions. Maximum points were awarded for protection of the driver dummy, all body areas being well protected. In the side barrier test, dummy readings indicated good protection of all body areas. In the more severe side pole test, the curtain airbag became slightly trapped behind the trim of the windscreen pillar, and the head scores for both the side barrier and side pole tests were penalised. In the pole impact, dummy readings of rib compressions indicated marginal chest protection. The seat and head restraint provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled by means of a switch to allow a rearward facing 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. The dangers of using a rearward facing seat in the position without first disabling the airbag are explained in permanently attached labels.


The bumper scored maximum points for protection of dummies' legs. The front edge of the bonnet was predominantly poor. In those areas likely to be struck by a child's head, the bonnet offered predominantly good protection, as it did for an adult's head.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on all variants in most European countries but is an option on some variants in certain countries. The system met Euro NCAP's fitment requirements for 2011 and complied with the test requirements. A seat belt reminder is standard for the driver, passenger and rear seats. A speed limitation device is not available for the Yaris.
