The Toyota Echo was introduced in 1999. The previous ANCAP assessment (a four star result) was based on a Euro NCAP test of a vehicle fitted with driver and passenger airbags. A passenger airbag was optional (as part of a safety pack) in Australia at the time but is no longer available. ANCAP therefore decided to test a vehicle without the passenger airbag.

Dual airbags are standard on Toyota Echoes in New Zealand and the previously published results still apply to those vehicles. A driver’s airbag is standard equipment on the Australian model. 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.
