The results of independent crash tests of Toyota Land Cruiser 300 have been published. The experts of the ANCAP committee established by Australia and New Zealand were the first to test the new generation of the Japanese SUV for safety. The results are good.
The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) includes a frontal collision of a vehicle with a collapsible barrier on a bogie. In this case, the overlap is 50%, the car and the trolley move towards each other at a speed of 50 km / h. Also, a frontal impact on the wall with full overlap and a speed of 50 km / h is carried out, a side impact with a trolley weighing 1.4 tons from the driver’s side at a speed of 60 km / h, a side impact on a pole at a speed of 32 km / h is simulated. In addition, cars are assessed from the point of view of injury risk when colliding with a pedestrian, the risk of whiplash injuries to the neck when hitting the car from behind is checked, and the operation of the autobraking and lane control system is assessed. As a result, a five-star rating is formed, like Euro NCAP.
In ANCAP crash tests, the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser earned 89% points for the protection of adult passengers, 88% for the protection of child passengers, 81% for the impact on pedestrians in the event of a collision, and 77% for the operation of electronic security systems. The final rating is a maximum of five stars. Experts praised Toyota’s work on the safety of the next-generation SUV, especially when compared to its predecessor, the 200 Series.
Separately, it is noted that the car can stop quickly enough when it automatically detects the danger of a collision with passing vehicles or a vulnerable road user – a pedestrian or a cyclist – appears on the road. As explained in ANCAP, large and heavy SUVs pose an increased danger to others, but a Land Cruiser, thanks to intelligently configured electronic complexes, can reduce this damage.
