The tested model of Toyota Corolla sedan was introduced in Australia during 2007. This 5-star ANCAP rating applies to all Corolla sedans built from October 2010 when safety upgrades were introduced. A separate ANCAP rating is available for Corollas built before October 2010 with dual airbags.
The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. 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 are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) are also standard. Side airbags, a driver knee airbag, head-protecting side curtains and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are standard on all variants from October 2010. Check with the manufacturer for safety features prior to this. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. 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 (lap) seat belt.
