Toyota?s new compact B-segment car scored 35 points for adult protection, the best score for Toyota in this stringent vehicle safety test,

The new Yaris also scored three stars for child protection (34 points or 68%) and two stars (18 points or 49%) for pedestrian protection.

The Yaris has driver and passenger front and side airbags, curtain shield airbags and a driver?s knee airbag, and there is a seat belt warning buzzer (with variable intensity buzzer) for both front seat passengers.

Yaris features seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters in the front seats as well as ISOFIX anchorages for the child seats.
