The tested model of Toyota Tarago was introduced in Australia during 2006. This 5 star ANCAP rating applies to all Taragos built from October 2010, when electronic stability control, side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag became standard and to models built prior to then with these safety features in a Safety Pack.

The Tarago scored 14.45 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious chest and leg injury for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and it earned 2 points in the pole test.


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, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and a driver knee airbag are standard equipment from October 2010. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats.

Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. Three point seat belts are fitted to all seats. These provide better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator brake pedal moved rearwards by 57mm. The park brake pedal moved upwards 53mm. The steering wheel hub moved forwards 13mm, downwards 5mm and sideways 10mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 29mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash high manual effort was required to open the driver's door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. The knee airbag eliminated the knee hazards that were found in the original crash test. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

Side Impact Test Results

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 Tarago. 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 upgraded vehicle was eligible for an optional pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags. The vehicle earned the maximum two points in this test.
