Star Safety System
The Star Safety System comes standard in all trims of the 2014 Toyota Corolla, and this includes all of the most important safety features that you could want in a compact sedan.

There are eight airbags in total, and these come standard in all of the models.

For years, three-point seatbelts have been considered the safest option for fender benders and more serious conclusions alike. The 2014 Corolla has these three-point seatbelts standard in every seat in the car for increased safety. In addition, there is an Emergency Locking Retractor on the driver’s seat, and every passenger seatbelt has an Automatic/Emergency Locking Retractor to increase safety in case of accidents.
As the 2014 Toyota Corolla is a good option for families, most people are glad to know that there are specific safety measures in place for children as well. The rear doors have child-protector locks, so you don’t have to worry about children accidentally opening the door. In addition, the outboard rear seats have Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), as well as tether anchors attached to all of the rear seats.
Other Safety Features
Despite all of those features to make you feel safe when driving or riding in the Toyota Corolla, there are even more safety features that come standard. These additional features include an engine immobilizer, tire pressure monitor system, head-impact protection structure, energy-absorbing crumple zones in the front and rear of the vehicle, and an energy-absorbing collapsible steering column.
