Toyota's popular Aurion has been awarded a five star safety rating in the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP), Australia's leading independent vehicle safety assessment programme.
From August, Aurion adopted a passenger seat belt reminder, which is a requirement to achieve the five star rating. When Aurion was introduced in 2006, only the driver had a seatbelt warning system.
Aurion is a popular choice with both private and fleet customers for its economy and impressive safety features.
Aurion's safety features includes a range of standard active and passive safety systems with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), and an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Brake Assist (BA), and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD).
There are a total of eight airbags - driver and passenger front and side airbags and front/rear curtain shield airbags. The dual-stage front airbag system calculates the intensity of a front collision and deploys the airbags accordingly.
