The 2014 Toyota Yaris is now in its third year on the market; and based on the crash-test ratings available at this point, we might suggest that if safety if your top priority in a small car, there are better picks.

The Yaris five-door hatchback got decent but not stellar safety ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which gave it a four-star Overall rating, made up of four stars each for frontal impact and rollover, and five stars for side impact.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the 2014 Yaris five-door hatchback as Good (its highest rating) on its moderate-overlap front crash, side crash, roof crush, and head-restraint/seats tests. But on the newer small-overlap frontal impact test, it achieved a worrisome 'Marginal' rating--only one notch above Poor.

Neither agency rated the three-door Yaris separately.

The current Yaris has than nine airbags as standard. They include dashboard bags, front seat-mounted side bags, a knee airbag for the driver, and roll-sensing side bags for front and rear occupants. And with a stiffer body structure, the 2014 Yaris is likely to do better in real-world crashes than previous generations of the same car.

Conclusion

The 2014 Toyota Yaris gets excellent ratings and safety is one of its outstanding aspects.

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.
