The tested model of Toyota Tarago was introduced in Australia during 2006. This 5 star ANCAP rating applies to all Taragos built from October 2010, when electronic stability control, side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag became standard and to models built prior to then with these safety features in a Safety Pack.
Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a driver knee airbag are standard equipment from October 2010. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. 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. Three point seat belts are fitted to all seats. These provide better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
