Nine airbags are standard, including a driver’s knee airbag.

The hatchback model has received “top safety pick” honors from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Tests conducted included moderate frontal overlap, side impact, roof strength, and rear crash protection. The Yaris sedan fell short in this effort with a rating of “fair” in its roof test and “marginal” in its rear impact tests.
