Toyota has also one-upped the competition in terms of safety with nine standard air bags.
Automobile Magazine


The Toyota Yaris Liftback models were completely redesigned last year, and their stronger body structure and additional airbags have earned them some excellent safety ratings. 

In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) testing, the Yaris was given top 'good' ratings in all categories--as well as the Top Safety Pick accolade. And in federal NCAP testing, it earned four stars overall, including an excellent five stars for side impact.

With nine standard airbags—including front seat-mounted side bags, a knee airbag for the driver, and roll-sensing side bags for front and rear occupants, the 2012 Yaris is a big step forward compared to the outgoing model, and it's now one of the safest models in its class. 

Conclusion

Safety is significantly improved versus the previous-generation Yaris, and occupant protection is top-notch.

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.
