The ASEAN NCAP has awarded the new Toyota Vios a 5-Star rating in its crash tests. The Thai-made Vios, also sold as the Yaris Ativ (with a smaller 1.2-litre engine), had scored 4-Stars adult occupant protection and two in child occupant protection back in 2012, showing improvement.
The 2018 model achieved an overall score of 81.63 points from an accumulated 44.70 points in adult occupant protection, 21.66 points in child occupant protection and 15.28 points for its safety assist technologies.
In terms of safety equipment, the model destined for Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand comes with seven airbags, ABS, electronic stability control and ISOFIX child seat mounts. This Vios is expected to be powered by a 108hp 1.5-litre petrol engine when it arrives in Malaysia in 2018.
