Used Car Safety Report

The Toyota Hilux has been awarded a 4 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

5 Star Driver Protection Excellent
4 Star Driver Protection Good
3 Star Driver Protection Marginal
2 Star Driver Protection Poor
1 Star Driver Protection Very Poor

The Toyota Hilux also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. ABS brakes are not available for the Workmate but are available on other variants. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the driver and outboard passenger seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A two point seat belt is fitted to the centre front seat. This provides inferior protection compared with a three point seat belt.

Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 1.93 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 3.38 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 110 mm and downwards 10mm. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 6mm, upwards 8mm and sideways 14mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 5mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash both doors opened with normal effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag and contact was stable.

Side Impact Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Side Impact* 16 pts (out of 16)
Head 4 pts
Chest 4 pts
Abdomen 4 pts
Pelvis 4 pts

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. It is based on a regulation test but the regulation does not apply to vehicles with a high seat height like the Hilux. Experience shows that such vehicles can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award full score for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points.
