The 2020 Toyota Yaris has been awarded a full marks test score of 5 out of 5 by the Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme), and this rating is applicable to every model in the Yaris range.

The Yaris achieved outstanding results in all departments: 86% for Adult Occupant safety; 81% for Child Occupant safety; 78% for Vulnerable Road User safety (pedestrians and cyclists), and 85% for Safety Assist (electronic driver aids and safety systems).

The Toyota Yaris is fitted with the Pre-Collision System, which makes up part of Toyota Safety Sense and which is now capable of detecting oncoming cars when turning right at an intersection, and of detecting pedestrians crossing the street when turning right or left. Toyota Safety Sense also features autonomous emergency braking, which detects other cars and brakes to avoid or mitigate accidents.

A full complement of airbags are standard including, front, side head, side chest, side pelvis and centre airbags. In fact, it is the first Toyota to be fitted with centre airbags, which prevent the driver and front passenger from colliding in the event of an accident. There is also a lane trace assist system, adaptive cruise control, road sign assist, emergency steering assist and automatic bright headlights. It obviously also has basic active safety systems such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) braking with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD).

Another reason for the Yaris’s impressive safety score is that it is built on the new NGA (New Global Architecture) platform (GA-B) for compact cars, and features a lightweight and highly rigid body with a low centre of gravity.

While it is unlikely that the Yaris range will be coming to South Africa, the rally-bred iteration of the car, the GR Yaris, will be introduced locally
