The Toyota Aurion, released just weeks ago, has earned itself a five-star crash test rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP).

Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and driver knee airbag are standard equipment. Anti-lock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD), electronic stability control (ESC) and automatic headlights are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

The Aurion scored 15.59 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious lower leg injury for the driver and front passenger. The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the side pole test. The overall score was an excellent 36.59 (out of a possible 37), which is a higher score than a BMW 530d with six airbags (36.53) and Volvo S60 D3 with six airbags (36.34).
