Toyota Urban Cruiser was tested in its most basic safety specifications fitted with two frontal airbags and anti-lock braking system (ABS). During the Global NCAP safety assessment, the vehicle showed a stable structure and provided adequate to good protection of critical body regions of the adults. Driver's and passenger's head and neck were offered good protection, and so were the chest regions of both.

However, driver's knees and passenger's right knee showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia. The bodyshell was rated as stable and it was capable of withstanding further loadings.

For child occupant protection, the CRS installed using the ISOFIX anchorages showed good protection. The child seat for the three-year-old was installed FWF using the ISOFIX anchorages and TT and could prevent excesive forward movement of the head while the child seat for 1.5-year-old was installed RWF with the ISOFIX anchorages and support leg while offering good protection to head and chest.

However, the lack of three-point belts in all seating positions and the high neck biomechanical values in the frontal crash are the reasons why the vehicle has received three stars for child occupant protection.
