Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2022 models

Tested vehicle: 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross LE 4-door 4wd

The Toyota Corolla Cross was introduced in the 2022 model year.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the driver-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained very well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

The driver's space was maintained well, and risk of injuries to the dummy's legs and feet was very low.

How the driver-side small overlap front test is conducted

Small overlap front: passenger-side

Rating applies to 2022 models

Tested vehicle: 2022 Toyota Corolla Cross XLE 4-door 4wd

The Toyota Corolla Cross was introduced in the 2022 model year. Two passenger-side small overlap frontal tests of the Corolla Cross were conducted, one by the Institute and the other by Toyota as part of frontal crash test verification. Ratings are based on both tests, but the vehicle specifications shown below are based on the Institute’s test.

Action shot taken during the passenger-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame and dashboard after the crash test indicates that the passenger's survival space was maintained reasonably well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

The passenger's space was maintained reasonably well, and risk of injuries to the dummy's legs and feet was low.

Low beams
On the straightaway, visibility was good on the left side of the road and fair on the right side. On curves, visibility was good on the gradual left and both right curves and fair on the sharp left curve.

The low beams never exceeded glare limits.

High beams
On the straightaway, visibility was fair on both sides of the road. On curves, visibility was good in all 4 tests.

High-beam assist compensates for some limitations of this vehicle's low beams on the straightaway and on both left curves.
