2021 Toyota Fortuner scores 5-stars in ASEAN NCAP crash tests

The 2021 Fortuner & Hilux shine in ASEAN NCAP crash tests.

The 2021 Toyota Fortuner has been awarded a 5-star safety rating by ASEAN NCAP.

The Fortuner scored 32.92 points for adult occupant protection, 43.38 points for child occupant protection and 10.95 points for Safety Assist Tests.

In the frontal impact test, the vehicle provided good protection to both adult occupants, but the driver's lower legs showed risk of injury. The test also revealed that the vehicle provided good protection to the occupants in an event of a side impact. The Fortuner offered better head protection compared to the Hilux.

ASEAN NCAP used a Thailand-spec Toyota Hilux for the crash tests. The Hilux is a pick-up truck that shares its underpinnings with the Fortuner. The test vehicle was powered by a 2.8-litre diesel engine and was equipped with 3 airbags.
