Adult occupant

For 2013, Euro NCAP is using improved child dummies and applying a broader assessment of CRS to vehicle compatibility. In the frontal impact, forward movement of the 3 year dummy, sat in a forward-facing restraint, was not excessive. In the side impact, both dummies were properly contained by their restraints, minimising the likelihood of dangerous head contact with parts of the car interior. All child restraints for which the car is designed could be installed. However, care was needed when installing the semi-universal group 0+/1 restraint to ensure that the ISOFIX probes were properly fixed into the anchorages in the rear outboard seats. 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.

Pedestrian

The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs in all areas tested and scored maximum points. However, the front edge of the bonnet scored no points, offering poor protection to the pelvis area. The bonnet offered predominantly fair protection for the head of a struck pedestrian, with some good protection in the areas where a child's head and an adult's head might strike.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on all RAV4s, and passed Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is also standard for the driver, passenger and rear seats. A speed limitation device is available as an option but is not expected to be sold in sufficient numbers to qualify for inclusion in Euro NCAP's assessment.

applies to all RAV4s of the specification tested
