Car and Driver



Toyota is upping the safety of the Yaris in leaps and bounds. Last year it added standard anti-lock braking, as well as side and curtain airbags; this year electronic stability control is also included with all models. The Yaris is one of the few vehicles in its class to offer the feature.

For 2010 Toyota greatly improves the Yaris' standard safety feature list, which now includes electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, front side airbags, and roll-sensing side curtain bags. The Yaris has not been a good performer in U.S. crash tests, though; it gets just three stars for side-impact safety, and the IIHS rates the Yaris as "marginal" for rear impact and "acceptable" in its new roof-strength test.

Conclusion

Although crash-test results aren't great, Toyota earns kudos for making the 2010 Yaris one of the first vehicles in its class to offer standard electronic stability control.

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.
