Verso safety victory

TOYOTA has achieved a best-in-class crash score in the European New Car Assessment Programme crash tests along with equal best child protection rating with the revised Corolla Verso.

The seven-seat Verso, which went on sale on May 1, scored the maximum five stars for occupant protection, with the highest points score in its class.

It also achieved a four-star rating in the new child protection category – equalling the highest result to date scored by the Ford Focus C-MAX – while it attained a two-star rating for pedestrian protection.

All Corolla Verso models are fitted with nine airbags as standard – including a knee airbag for the driver – while another unique feature in the compact MPV segment is a two-stage seatbelt reminder which activates a warning light and persistent buzzer in front seat occupants fail to buckle up within a set period.
