The tested model of the Toyota HiAce was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in May 2019. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all van (2 seat) and crew van (5 seat) variants built from February 2019. The Commuter bus and Minibus variants are unrated.
Dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting (curtains) and a driver knee airbag are standard.
Autonomous emergency braking (City, Interurban & Vulnerable Road User) as well as lane keep assist (LKA) with lane departure warning (LDW) and blind spot monitoring (BSM) are standard.
A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
NOTE: Child Occupant Protection scoring does not apply to 2 seat van variants. This however does not affect the overall safety rating, with 5 star ratings applicable to all van variants.
