Toyota Aygo gets a three-star rating at the Euro NCAP crash tests

Article by Christian A., on December 21, 2012

A three-star rating was given to the Toyota Aygo and its sister cars, the Peugeot 107 and Citroen C1, in the most recent round of Euro NCAP crash tests. The existing model is a facelifted version of a car that initially got four stars when it was released in 2005 but it’s believed that these cars had a poor performance because Toyota didn’t implement the newest developments in passenger safety.

The Aygo earned three stars since it only tested with a certain number of extra items, which are not presently available, which Toyota has promised to carry over to cars starting in July 2013. Without these features, these cars would have scored much worse. These features include the side thorax airbags, side head curtain airbags, electronic stability control, passenger seatbelt reminder and ISOFIX rear outboard seats.

Dr Michiel Van Ratingen, Euro NCAP secretary general, said that its test protocols have been subjected to significant modifications over the last few years. He added that these several automakers continue to have top-sellers even without implementing the required safety updates.
