Seat belts keep 75% of your body in the seat without being thrown forward.

But the rest 25% comprising of your neck and head would need every bit of protection required when they crash into the steering wheel. Afterall, what use is 75% of the body if the head is impacted? A reason why cars are rated 0 or a maximum of 1 if airbags are not present.

Watch any video of the NCAP videos on frontal and side impact tests, and you would surely be convinced about the usefulness of airbags. Yes, airbags are useless without seatbelts - but that doesn't mean airbags are over rated.

Looks good on the outside but for that ride height which is frankly ridiculous for such a big sedan. It looks as if the car is sitting on a jack.

Great to hear about airbags.

Does the Corolla have the same built to last quality and reliability as the fortuner or Innova?

Well, the chauffeur's life is just as important as the owner's so any feature that improves protection to the driver is always welcome. And the additional airbags are for protection from side impact, so it benefits the rear seat passengers too.

Obviously, there is no question about it. In fact, the Corolla itself was the first car that tagged Toyota as Reliable, Trouble Free Brand. And it's also Global Best Seller, and that speaks a lot about Reliability.

Although Innova & Fortuner are Ladder on Frame, the Monocoque Corolla shouldn't cause problem if it's not taken off road.

Jokes apart, the Corolla is one fine example of a car that makes owners (Non Enthusiastic) happy with what they care about most (Backseat Comfort & Reliability).
