We all know that the USA is NOT getting the 300 Series Toyota Land Cruiser, just like we did not get the 70-Series Land Cruiser, but that doesn’t mean that we are not interested in these vehicles. So when this video popped up and due to the the fact that it includes slow motion video, that always catches our eye!
Australasia’s independent vehicle safety testing authority is the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). They have conducted their laboratory crash testing on the 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser and the vehicle passed by scoring a maximum five-star rating. The video above shows the new Toyota SUV going through all of the ANCAP’s vehicle safety test evaluations.
The Toyota Land Cruiser received an 89% score for adult occupant protection and 88% for keeping rear occupant – children safe. It achieved an 81% rating for protecting pedestrians and cyclists, and the vehicle’s overall safety systems attained a 77% valuation.
ABOUT AUSTRALASIAN NEW CAR ASSESSMENT PROGRAM – ANCAP:
Since 1993, ANCAP has published independent safety ratings for thousands of new vehicle makes, models and variants. These independent safety ratings are used to compare the relative safety between vehicles of similar size, and have become a critical factor in vehicle selection for private and fleet buyers.
ANCAP is much like our National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) here in the United States. Give this Car & Driver story a read: NHTSA and IIHS Crash Test Safety Ratings Explained
