The tested model of Yaris hatch was introduced in Australia and New Zealand late in 2011. This rating applies to all Australasian hatch variants. This rating does not apply to the Yaris sedan.
The 1.3L left-hand-drive European 5-door hatch was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that all Australasian hatch variants, including the 3-door hatch, achieve a 5-star rating.
Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a driver knee airbag are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), emergency brake assist (EBA) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
