The tested model of Toyota Prius was introduced in 2004. Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 will require Electronic Stability Control in order to achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.

The European model was tested by EuroNCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.

Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtain airbags are standard equipment on the luxury (i-Tech) variant in Australia. ABS brakes and electronic stability control are also standard on this variant. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to the driver and front passenger seats.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
