|Pedestrian Protection Rating|
|Model||Camry Altise 2006 on|
|Tested Vehicles Built||10/06 and 9/06|
|Airbags (if supplied)||Dual front airbags|
|Engine size||2.4 L|
|Kerb Weight||1440 kg|
|Test Date||27 June 2007|
The tested model of Toyota Camry was introduced in Australia during 2006.
Dual front airbags are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) are also standard. Side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are optional on the Altise variant and standard on higher variants (see separate rating of Ateva). Electronic stability control (ESC) is only available on the Grande and Sportivo variants. An intelligent seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver's seat.
The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
The Toyota Camry Altise scored 12.29 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious leg injury was marginal for the driver and passenger.
The vehicle scored 14.24 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. Protection from serious chest injury was marginal for the driver.
Body region scores out of 4 points each: Head/neck 4 pts, chest 3.83 pts, upper legs 2 pts, lower legs 2.46 pts.
The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 68 mm and upwards 39 mm. The steering wheel hub moved forwards 23mm and upwards 47 mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 20 mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash all doors opened with normal effort.
The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.
Body region scores out of 4 points each: Head 4 pts, chest 2.31 pts, abdomen 4 pts, pelvis 3.93 pts.
The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points.
Not eligible due to a lack of head-protecting side airbags.
