The Toyota Vios, which uses the DNGA platform developed by Daihatsu, was put to safety testing, with a door unit not yet available on the production vehicle.
Accordingly, they added a detail to the test car’s front door trim to reduce injury to passengers if the side airbags deployed, which affected the final result. However, not all cars sold in the market have this detail.
At present, ASEAN NCAP, an independent road safety agency sponsored by the FIA, the United Nations and Global NCAP – the sponsoring agency for NCAP organizations in the Asia-Pacific region, have announced the test results. Crash test for Toyota Vios 2023 AC100 generation ( The Vios 2023 sold in Vietnam is a new version, it is not a new generation version).
Toyota Vios 2023 has received the highest 5 star rating. However, the ASEAN NCAP also noted that the ability to protect adults, especially the chest area, in a side collision is still weak. The car got only 6.64 points out of maximum 8 points.
However, thanks to the child protection capabilities and advanced driver assistance systems, overall, the Toyota Vios 2023 still has enough ground to reach the maximum 5-star standard.
The ASEAN NCAP results are in line with those published by the independent Belgian agency Vincote, approved by the United Nations in May. The agency conducted a second investigation in the presence of Thai trucking officials.
Since the last time the Honda City was tested under the old procedure was in 2020, it is difficult to compare the safety levels between the two rival models.
However, there is still a way to estimate. The Honda WR-V and Honda HR-V were tested according to the new procedure. Both models are built on the same basic platform as the Honda City.
Compared with the two Hondas, the Toyota Vios is weaker in its ability to protect passengers in a side collision. Both the Honda WR-V and Honda HR-V scored a maximum of 8 points compared to the Toyota Vios’s 6.64 points.
In turn, the Toyota Vios surpasses the overall score and still qualifies for 5 stars. Partly thanks to the curtain airbags equipped on both roofs of the car.
