ANCAP has confirmed a 5 star safety rating for the Toyota Hilux 4WD utes. This rating applies to all 4×4 single cab and extra cab variants built from August 2013.
This achievement follows several safety upgrades to the Hilux, including a successful side pole impact test, seat belt reminders and improved knee protection.
While this result only applies to the single and extra cab 4×4 variants, it is anticipated that the dual cab Hilux 4×4 variants will follow suit. No change has been made to the 2WD versions so their ratings remain at 4 star.
