Master of Africa gets 5-star safety rating

The latest generation of Land Cruiser, the Land Cruiser 300, has unsurprisingly been awarded a full five-star safety rating in the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). The Land Cruiser 300 is the first all-new Land Cruiser in 14 years, and features incredibly high levels of both passive and active safety systems, all of which contributed to the top rating.

The LC300 was awarded full points for protection offered to child occupants in the MPDB (Mobile Progressive Deformable Barrier – which simulates a frontal collision) and side-impact tests. It also received an extremely high score for Vulnerable Road User protection under ANCAP’s 2020 – 2022 protocols, with a score of 81%.  In fact, this was the second highest score ever awarded. The Land Cruiser is able to avoid collisions with pedestrians when turning across their path, and showed good performance in all forward pedestrian autonomous emergency braking (AEB) tests, with collisions avoided or mitigated across all scenarios.

"The protection the Toyota Land Cruiser offers to vulnerable road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, is impressive for a large SUV,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.

In terms of adult occupants of the vehicle, the Land Cruiser was awarded a score of 89%. It is fitted with dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting airbags, as well as driver and passenger knee airbags, as standard.

The Toyota Land Cruiser also scored full points for protection offered to child occupants in the MPDB and side impact tests.

Toyota Safety Sense is fitted to both the ZX and GR-S grades and offers a full suite of active safety aids with autonomous driving technologies such as Lane Trace Assist and all-speed radar cruise control. The usual supporting functions such as Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Lane Departure Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) with braking, and Adaptive High Beam are also included.

Standard active safety features include Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Active Traction Control (ATRC) and Hill Assist Control (HAC), Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Downhill Assist Control (DAC) and the obligatory ABS, EBD and Brake Assist (BA) driver support systems.

"Larger, heavier vehicles always present higher risks for other road users and this is why ANCAP focusses on a vehicle’s ability to either avoid a crash, or reduce its impact, through our suite of Safety Assist tests. The safety specifications in the new-generation Toyota Land Cruiser are a welcome update to its predecessor,” said Hoorweg.

The 5-star safety rating applies to all variants of the Toyota Land Cruiser except for the GR Sport, which was not assessed.
