HiLux. Unbreakable, because you're not.

With its go anywhere, do anything attitude, we are constantly working to ensure HiLux remains unbreakable, no matter what gets thrown at it. At the same time we do everything we can to ensure the vehicle is equipped with outstanding levels of safety through both 'passive' and 'active' safety features.

We know Australia has some of the toughest working conditions on earth, so every HiLux is tested against Toyota's Global Outstanding Assessment (GOA) passive safety assessment program. The HiLux cabin is designed to absorb impact in the event of an accident. It comes complete with side door Anti-intrusion beams and a Head Impact Protection Structure (HIPS), to help absorb impact. It also has a cross member at the front end of the frame, helping prevent smaller vehicle intrusion.

While HiLux blitzes our own Rigorous Global Safety Programme, it's also tried and tested every day by hundreds of thousands of satisfied owners, in all weather conditions and on all terrains, across Australia.

From SRS airbags (driver and front passenger) and ABS brakes, which are standard across the range, to Crumple Zone technology and Vehicle Stability Control (standard on all 4x4 HiLux variants), HiLux offers active and passive safety measures designed to ensure that not only is it the most reliable, hardworking member of your team, it's also the safest.

5-Star ANCAP Rating for HiLux 4x4

All HiLux 4x4 grades have been awarded the maximum five-star safety rating by ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program). In order to achieve a five-star rating a vehicle must go through rigorous testing in a number of key safety categories.

Brake Assist

Brake Assist (BA) works with ABS to help stop faster in an emergency.


Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD)

Standard on all 4x4 HiLux variants, EBD redistributes brake force to help keep stability and balance during sudden braking.


Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)

Standard on all 4x4 HiLux variants, VSC helps give safer cornering by actively detecting and controlling under/ oversteer.


Traction Control (TRC)

Standard on all 4x4 HiLux variants, TRC helps provide grip on the road, by improving traction on difficult or varied surfaces.


SRS Airbags

HiLux comes with driver and front passenger SRS airbags as standard across the range.


Crumple Zone

A Crumple Zone helps protect driver and passengers absorbing impact in a collision.
