Safest small MPV: Toyota Yaris Cross

The Yaris Cross shares many things with the Yaris hatchback, including a five-star safety rating

The Toyota Yaris Cross is the first non-hatchback to wear the Yaris name but, just like the current Yaris hatchback and two generations before it, the Cross lives up to the consistent five-star rating associated with the name.

This small SUV is classed by Euro NCAP as a small MPV due its likely intended use as a family vehicle, rather than as an off-roader.

Of course, safety is a priority for family cars, and the Yaris Cross ranks highly here. A score of 84% in the Child Occupant category will reassure parents that their little ones are travelling in some of the safest seats possible. The adults can travel in comfort, too, thanks to an adult occupant protection score of 85%.

Additional safety systems performed well, too, with a score of 81%, while vulnerable-road-user safety scored an equally impressive 78%.
