The tested model of Toyota Aurion was introduced in 2012 (April in Australia and March in New Zealand). Dual front airbags, side airbags, head-protecting side curtains and driver knee airbag are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD), electronic stability control (ESC) and automatic headlights are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.
5 stars. The Aurion scored 15.59 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. There was a slight risk of serious lower 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 side pole test.
