ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

Toyota Yaris

Year Range

Jul 2005 – Oct 2011

Applies to

3 door hatch with dual frontal airbags


Small Car

Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Toyota Yaris was introduced in Australia during 2005. Vehicles tested after 1 January 2008 require Electronic Stability Control in order achieve a 5 star rating. This vehicle was tested prior to this date and may or may not meet this new requirement.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. ABS/EBD brakes are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. Side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a knee airbag for the driver are available in a safety pack that is recommended by ANCAP. The tested vehicle did not have these features but a Yaris with them was awarded 5 stars by Euro NCAP (see separate ANCAP report). The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. 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.
