Toyota PH lineup crash-tested by Asean NCAP

Jun 06, 2019 | Same topic: Up-to-date consumer reports
Ever wondered how our locally available Toyota cars would fare in crash tests? Wonder no more.

The yearly crash tests by the Asean New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) rate cars in terms of safety. All tests are standardized for objective results that will give consumers a good idea of how safe (or not) a vehicle is when it is involved in a crash. 

For most consumers, getting the best quality and reliability as a function of safety is a very important concern, of course. All crash-test results are published by the Asean NCAP site to disseminate information to the general public.

The tests are rigorous, as nothing is left to chance. Vehicles must survive a battery of destructive tests in a rigidly designed process to see what happens to a vehicle and its passengers (of course, with crash test dummies filling in for live subjects). Nothing is left to chance to make sure the car chassis will keep occupants alive and safe.

2.The strengths of Toyota’s cars 

Toyota cars from small to big use the best technology to design crumple zones into the chassis to absorb the force of impact. That Is supplemented with other safety built in as standard equipment. What the Asean NCAP has demonstrated is the dedication to produce safe cars to ride.

Another curious tidbit about Toyota sub-compacts is that they have better ratings at four stars. When compared to other brands at three-star safety ratings. Yes, bigger is better, but Toyota’s sub-compacts hold their own. As the cars in the line get bigger, they get enhanced safety equipment.

Toyota Vios gets 5-star for a crash test 

Among top car brands, Toyota is always consistent with the lineup of cars that get five or four stars all the time. All the crash test results of Toyota’s vehicle lineup in the Philippines is only matched by Honda, Nissan, and Mitsubishi which have the best basic safety equipment.

One problem why other brands fail at getting better adult overall protection (AOP) and child overall protection (COP) is the inferiority or lack of equipment that all four mentioned car brands are strict about.

The yearly Asean NCAP is aimed at keeping industry standards of safety constant and up to date. Losing even one star is a cause of alarm for most brands. Unfortunately, many sub-compacts fail in these tests, but Toyota always gets a four- or five-star rating.

This makes Toyota better than most car brands in this aspect and earns Philkotse’s big thumbs up.
