Toyota Landcruiser 70 Series gets top safety score

The recent changes introduced to the Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series single cab chassis (details here) have allowed the model to qualify for a five-star ANCAP safety rating.

ANCAP recently crash tested the Toyota 4×4 and has today confirmed the 70 Series single cab chassis qualifies for the top safety score.

Those changes included structural improvements to the chassis and cabin, the addition of side curtain airbags, driver knee airbag, seat belt pre-tensioners and changes to the bonnet and seat designs.

The single cab-chassis variant of the 70 Series has qualified for the safety score.

CEO of ANCAP, James Goodwin, welcomed the results.

“Safety is a key consideration for everyday consumers and corporations with a significant proportion of businesses requiring minimum 5-star vehicle standards for not only their own fleets but also their contractors.

“This competitive pressure has resulted in a two-star jump for the Landcruiser 70 and will have a tangible effect on the safety of worksites and more broadly, Australasia’s vehicle fleet.”
