Crash-test authority, the Australiasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has awarded the new Toyota C-HR small SUV its maximum five-star protection rating.

Standard safety systems including autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and lane departure warning with steering assist, which helped contribute to the C-HR’s final rating, as part of the 2017 ANCAP test procedure’s stronger focus on driver assist technologies.

“The C-HR is an example of an affordable model which meets high levels of safety in all areas of assessment,” said ANCAP CEO, James Goodwin.

“As a new entrant in the competitive Compact SUV segment, top safety credentials are a must if it is to win consumer sales, and it is encouraging to see key safety features provided as standard.”

In crash tests the C-HR scored 33.18 out of 38 points for adult occupant protection, 38.03 out of 49 points for child protection, 27.44 out of 42 points for pedestrian protection, and 8.18 out of 12 points for safety assist systems.

Though most areas of occupant protection were identified as ‘good’ crash testing revealed a risk of serious chest injury for both the driver and rear seat passengers during the full-width frontal test, and a further risk of driver and front passenger leg injury in the offset test, resulting in an acceptable rating for those areas.

Australian-delivered C-HR models also lack pedestrian detection and manually-set speed limiter systems of European models, which would have boosted the safety assist score further had they been included.

Testing for the C-HR was conducted by Euro NCAP and applied to the left hand drive 1.8-litre hybrid model not offered in Australia, with local scoring applied via supplied technical data.
