Urban Cruiser - Unequalled safety performance
Urban Cruiser is provided with a comprehensive system of active and passive safety technology that's unequalled within the B-segment.
The body structure of the Urban Cruiser has excellent impact energy absorption and distribution from front, side and rear. This is all part of Toyota's Minimal Intrusion Cabin System. Bonnet and bumper construction also optimises pedestrian protection, making the impact as low as possible by means of an energy absorbing structure. No fewer than seven airbags, including curtain shields and driver's knee airbag fitted strategically to reduce injury in a collision. Active headrests help to protect driver and front passenger by reducing the risk of whiplash injuries, should an accident occur.
Active safety features include ABS as standard with Brake Assist and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) for maximum effectiveness and stability in an emergency braking situation.
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) including Traction Control (TRC) is also standard. VSC actively helps the driver maintain control in critical, or potentially dangerous situations. Using sensors to determine road conditions and driver intention, VSC reacts to sudden handling changes or slippery roads to correct under-steer or oversteer.
The Urban Cruiser has been engineered to reach a safety level equivalent to Euro NCAP 5-star rating.
