The Toyota Innova Crysta has received a highly-commendable 4-star rating out of 5 in the ASEAN NCAP crash test. An ASEAN-spec version of the Innova Crysta, sourced from Indonesia, was used for the test.
The new Toyota MPV would have got an overall rating of 5 stars and not 4 if the ASEAN-spec version was equipped with ESC (Electronic Stability Control) as standard. The ESC-equipped trim versions got a score of 14.10 points (out of a maximum of 16.00) for Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) and, thus, an overall safety rating of 5 stars.

The variants which did not have ESC got a safety rating of 4 stars. The Toyota Innova Crysta registered a score of 76 per cent in Child Occupant Protection (COP) compliance, which made it eligible to feature in the 4-star category.
Toyota hasn’t revealed any details about the safety features that will come as standard in the Indian-spec Innova Crysta. At the 2016 Auto Expo, the model which was used to unveil the MPV in India was the ‘Z’ variant and was equipped with airbags, ABS, EBD, and Brake Assist.
