5-STAR SAFETY FOR HILUX 4x4

A new round of crash testing has at last seen variants in Toyota's Hilux ute achieve a 5-Star safety rating with the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).

The upgraded rating comes courtesy of success in new side pole impact testing, with improved knee protection and seat belt reminders figuring among the Hilux's upgrades.

News of the upgraded score will be of interest not only to private buyers, but also to fleet buyers, with many - including mining giant BHP Billiton - now requiring a 5-Star rating.

"This is an excellent case study of a very strong shift in the light commercial vehicle market driven by safety. There is no longer any excuse for fleet buyers when it comes to safety - they should accept nothing less than 5 star safety," ANCAP Chairman Lauchlan McIntosh said.

For now, ANCAP's upgraded score applies only to single- and extra-cab 4x4 Hilux models, although upgrades are due soon for dual-cab models.

The new safety rating applies to relevant models built from August 2013.

No change has been made to the 4x2 models however, which leaves their safety rating at the earlier 4-Star level.

The upgraded 5-Star models in the Hilux range join a growing number of top-safety offerings in the pickup market, including the Holden Colorado, Mazda BT-50, Ford Ranger and Volkswagen Amarok.
