Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Toyota 4Runner was redesigned for the 2003 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test
- The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.
- Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the B-pillar and head restraint during rebound. Head acceleration from this hit was low.
- There was little change in the position of the dummy's feet following the crash test. Injury risk was low.
- Side airbags: front and second row head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags (standard beginning with 2008 models, optional in 2003-07 models)
- Rollover sensor: designed to deploy the side curtain airbags, if equipped, in the event of an impending rollover (beginning with 2004 models)
- Electronic stability control
- Antilock brakes
- Daytime running lights (optional)
