ANCAP Safety

The Toyota Kluger (Highlander in New Zealand) was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in June 2021. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants built from March 2021.

Dual frontal, side head-protecting airbags (first, second & third rows), and side chest-protecting airbags (first row), and a driver knee airbag are standard. A centre airbag to minimise occupant injury in a far-side impact crash is not available.

Autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) as well as a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and an advanced speed assistance system (SAS) are standard on all variants.

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