You know that are car company is great when several of their product offerings receive five-star ratings in terms of safety. The fourth ASEAN NCAP Grand Prix Awards conducted online saw Toyota receiving multiple awards for its best-in-class safety technologies, including one ‘Excellent Award’.
This translates to a brand with the most five-star awards from 2019 to 2020, which is the highest figure recorded by all brands when combined together with a few more awards received the year before. Two years and even five-star ratings for seven different models equals peace of mind for fellow Toyota owners across Malaysia (and the rest of the world).
The latest set of awards were given to Toyota Corolla Altis, Toyota Hilux, and Toyota Innova for the Excellent Awards for Continuous Safety Improvement in their respective segments. Another award for Best Safety Performance Award for Safety Assist Systems was handed out to the Toyota Majesty/Granvia.
According to UMW Toyota Motor’s Deputy Chairman, Akio Takeyama, “Toyota is committed to continuously improving its vehicle safety technologies and performance, as part of its entire efforts toward road and traffic safety, with focus on three essential elements vehicle (advancing safety technology), people (educating drivers, passengers, and pedestrians towards traffic safety) and traffic environment (supporting safer traffic infrastructure).”
“The awards from ASEAN NCAP confirm the approach of Toyota Synergized Mobility to bring to the forefront the technological leadership of Toyota that will be used to make ever better cars. Today, many of our models sold in Malaysia have Toyota Safety Sense, an Integrated Safety Management Concept where individual safety technologies and systems are designed to collaborate with each other in various vehicle operation stages, from parking to advanced safety, pre-collision safety, collision safety and rescue,” added Ravindran K., President of UMW Toyota Motor.
