A new round of Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) crash safety scores has been released this week, with top 5-Star ratings going to the all-new Toyota Camry, along with Subaru's brand-new Impreza small car and XV crossover.

The new Camry hit Australian showrooms late last year, and the 5-Star rating applies to all variants in the new midsizer's line-up.

The Camry scored 15.27 out of 16 in the offset crash test. ANCAP says the passenger compartment held its shape well, with a slight risk of serious leg injury for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the optional pole test.

Safety features include dual front airbags, side airbags, side curtain and knee airbags. There is also electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes and electronic brake distribution.

Seatbelt reminders are also fitted to all five seats, while the front seats get seatbelt pretensioners.

The new Impreza and its high-riding XV sibling hit Australian showrooms this year (the XV this week), with the 5-Star rating based on ANCAP crash tests for the Impreza sedan.

The test car scored 14.328 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well, with a slight risk of serious chest and leg injury for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further two points in the pole test.

Safety features for all three variants (Impreza sedan and hatch, XV hatch) include dual front airbags, side and curtain airbags, driver's knee airbag.

Electronic stability control is also standard, along with electronic brake distribution and anti-lock brakes. Seatbelt reminders are fitted to all five seats, along with pretensioners for the front seats.
