Collision tests are essential for protecting Drivers from danger and making safer cars.
Collision tests using actual vehicles are conducted at a vast collision test site with a length of 280 m, maximum width of 190 m, and a surface area of approximately 44,000 square meters.
How often are collision tests conducted? Toyota performs more than 1,600 tests using actual vehicles (all are brand new cars) each year (including tests at other collision test sites).
This means that on average, more than four tests are conducted each day.
The vehicles used in the tests are destroyed, but by performing the tests over and over again, Toyota is able to extract valuable information under various conditions.
