Euro NCAP: Toyota Corolla scores 5-star safety rating image

The new generation of the Toyota Corolla has scored a maximum 5-star safety rating after it was tested by the safety specialists at Euro NCAP.

In the Adult Occupant safety, the new generation of the Toyota Corolla has scored 94 percent, in the Child Occupant protection 82 percent, 67 percent in the Pedestrian Safety and 66 percent in the Safety Assist. According to Euro NCAP, in the Adult Occupant protection, the compartment remained stable in the frontal impact and dummy reading indicated good protection to the knees and femurs of the driver and the front passenger. Protection to the chest was adequate in the side barrier test and the seat and head restraint provided good protection in the event of a rear-end collision.

In the Child Occupant safety, the Toyota Corolla scored maximum points for the 18 month dummy and the head of the 3 year dummy did not move forward excessively in the frontal impact. Both dummies were properly contained by their restraints in the side impact test too. In the Pedestrian safety, the bumper of the car scored maximum points, however the bonnet’s front edge is offering poor protection to the legs and pelvis of the struck pedestrian. ESC is standard on the new Toyota Corolla generation. The model tested was a 1.6 Mid grade four-door sedan.
