2018 Toyota Yaris Receives 5-Star Safety Rating; Suzuki APV Cab Chassis Nets a Zero


The New Car Assessment Program for Southeast Asian Countries or ASEAN NCAP released the results of 4 new crash tests done during the fourth quarter of 2017. These vehicles are the first in ASEAN NCAP’s new protocol for 2017-2020 which uses a single rating system that comprises Adult Occupancy Protection (50 percent) Child Occupant Protection 25 percent), and Safety Assist Technologies (25 percent).

The Toyota Vios (and its hatchback twin, the Yaris) received a perfect 5-Star rating under the new 2017-2020 protocol. This is an improvement over the previous result of a 4-Star rating; it must be remembered that the Vios is the first car tested by the ASEAN NCAP way back in 2012. The Yaris scored 44.70 out of 50 in Adult Protection and 21.66 in Child Protection, and 15.28 for its Safety Assist Tech. Its overall score is 81.63 points out of 100.

Meanwhile, the ASEAN NCAP also tested two light commercial vehicles including the Suzuki Carry (the local market’s APV cab-chassis). As expected, the APV-derived truck scored just 17.14 out of 100, or a 0-Star Rating.

  1. And people are telling that cars before are tougher. Well, yes they are, but are they safer?

    1. try to crash a metal box with 6" thick walls, with a human inside. yes the metal box is super tough, but the human inside would be mush.

      look up the crash test between a 90's corolla and the current one. on youtube

    1. The Vios and Yaris are the first two cars tested under the new ASEAN NCAP testing protocol. I'd bet cars introduced in 2018 onward will be tested then.

  3. is it the same vios and yaris being sold in philippines?if no, then whats the point telling it to filipinos. if yes, how about the base models,still 5 star?

    i think you should also state the variant and the safety features of the car subjected to crash test, so that filipino knows what variant(features) scores five star.

    i keep seeing review saying this or those care score 5 star, but when you look on its base model,it doest even have an airbag. what kind of sorcery they do to score 5 star without airbags?

    1. The Yaris is the same model that was previewed by TMP and will be sold starting January. It has the same levels of safety as the one tested by the ASEAN NCAP.

      As for the Vios, it may receive the same level of safety equipment. But since it's due out around middle of 2018 as a 2019 model, we don't know for certain if it will carry the same equipment level as the one tested by the ASEAN NCAP. My personal hunch is yes, for the top of the line variant given Toyota's wanting to improve the safety of their vehicles globally.

    2. can they give filipino the score of other variants,i mean the base model and other than the totl?i think im not the only one want this. since this give false information that yaris and vios score 5 star even the base model.

      as you know filipinos are more practical, so more filipi os are just looking for the base variant or the next variant(not the totl).

    3. This data was provided by ASEAN NCAP and the testing is done in Malaysia.

      The carmakers are the ones that submit their cars for testing. Some models are tested across different grades, but not all.

      In some cases, the ASEAN NCAP would derive results when you remove certain features. For instance, even if you score high on both adult and occupancy protection (75 points), you'll only net a 4-star rating because you omitted safety assist tech (25 points).

      In the case of the Yaris, the models designed for the Thailand market (and ours) contains all the required features to merit a 5-star rating. The Vios model in Thailand is the same. That's why it remains to be seen whether Toyota Motor Philippines will do the same move when the new Vios arrives next year.

  4. Will the outgoing VIOS will be replaced by the new Yaris Ativ? I hope the pre-facelift Vios gets a facelift since it was updated in 2016 with a new engine and transmission, Thailand has the facelift model since January
