Toyota earned top marks in safety tests

May 27, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Toyota Alphard / Vellfire, RAV4, and Raize models received the highest safety performance evaluations in 2019 from JNCAP.

Each year, JNCAP carefully reviews its test methods and assessment standards, taking into account actual traffic accidents in Japan and the need for countermeasures. Earlier, the organization added an autonomous emergency braking system to assess the effectiveness of preventive safety. She finds pedestrians under street lights at night due to the fact that in Japan, pedestrian deaths from traffic accidents often occur in the dark. Also, an autonomous emergency braking system with pedestrian detection was added to the list of assessment items last year. The Alphard / Vellfire and RAV4 models, equipped with the latest Toyota Safety Sense system, received the highest ASV +++ ranking in the JNCAP assessment of preventative safety.

JNCAP also revised its collision safety performance assessment criteria, which better reflect the aging conditions of the population, and adopted new crash test dummies that more accurately represent the human body. Against this background, RAV4 and Raize, equipped with the latest bodywork and passenger safety system, received five stars – the highest rating of the organization.

Although the death toll from accidents and accidents is decreasing every year, tragic accidents continue to occur. In accordance with the desire to achieve the ultimate goal, which reduces to zero the number of fatalities caused by traffic accidents, Toyota develops vehicles taking into account various perspectives, including equipping all models with Toyota Safety Sense package, using connected technologies and developing automated vehicles.

With the development of safer cars, Toyota continues to promote educational events for people, including awareness-raising events at Toyota dealers who introduce customers to Sapo-Toyo (vehicles that ensure a safe and comfortable life for motorists), as well as promoting traffic Infrastructure in an attempt to provide customers with a safe and reliable mobility society.
