SAFETY | 6 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal offset; 'good,' side impact; 'good,' rear impact; 'acceptable,' roof strength
IIHS

Not yet tested
NHTSA




The Toyota Yaris hasn't been particularly strong in safety, but Toyota has improved the package in the past couple of model years by making electronic stability control and anti-lock braking standard, as well as side and curtain airbags. To its credit, the Yaris is actually one of the few vehicles in its class of lowest-priced vehicles to offer the feature on every trim—even the base model.

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash-testing, the Yaris earned top 'good' ratings for frontal, side, and rear impact, but it was rated just 'acceptable' in the rollover-related roof strength test. The 2011 Toyota Yaris hasn't yet been tested under new, more rigorous crash tests and ratings standards introduced for this model year. Under the previous federal tests, the Yaris earned four-star results across the board.

Conclusion

The 2011 Toyota Yaris doesn't have class-leading safety ratings, but its list of standard safety features is impressive.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
