Yaris helps protect you and your entourage with nine standard airbags,1 including a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger seat-cushion airbags, front/rear side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag.
Star Safety SystemTM
Yaris comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six advanced safety features that includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC),2 Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA)3 and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).4
Driver and Front Passenger Whiplash-Injury-Lessening Seats
In certain rear-end collisions, the Whiplash-Injury-Lessening (WIL)5 seatbacks in the front seats are engineered to yield in a controlled fashion, reducing the motion differential between head and torso, and helping minimize injury.
Tire Pressure Monitor System
Our advanced Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS)6 comes standard on every Yaris. Designed to monitor the tire pressure at all times, it alerts the driver when a tire or tires become critically underinflated.
Child Safety Seat Restraints
To help protect smaller family members, every Yaris comes equipped with a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) restraint system. With lower anchors on outboard rear seats and tether anchors on all rear seats, you can make sure child safety seats are securely attached to help keep younger passengers safe.
Peace of Mind With Every New Vehicle
Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That’s why we include a no cost maintenance plan7 with the purchase or lease of every new Toyota for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for 2 years and unlimited miles.8
All the airbag systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All airbags (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating airbag, always wear seatbelts and sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. See Owner’s Manual
for further information/warnings.
2 Vehicle Stability Control is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions, weather and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
3 Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper vehicle maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
4 Smart Stop Technology® operates only in the event of certain contemporaneous brake and accelerator pedal applications. When engaged, the system will reduce power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology® is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. See Owner’s Manual for details.
5 Whiplash-Injury-Lessening front seats can help reduce the severity of whiplash injury in certain rear-end collisions.
6 The Toyota Tire Pressure Monitor alerts the driver when tire pressure is critically low. For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge; do not rely solely on the monitor system. See Owner’s Manual for details.
7 Covers normal factory scheduled service for 2 years or 25K miles, whichever comes first. See Toyota dealer for details and exclusions. Valid only in the continental U.S. and Alaska.
8 Does not include parts and fluids, except emergency fuel delivery. Valid only in the continental U.S. and Alaska.
