Toyota offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

The 2022 Toyota Corolla is average compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Toyota Corolla has a score of 78, implying a 0.045% chance of driver death (4% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Toyota Corolla has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0452% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.1615%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0452% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.1615% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Toyota Corolla is 3% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons, the 2022 Toyota Corolla is 10% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Toyota's Safety Sense greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Toyota Corolla: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). Optional safety features on the 2022 Toyota Corolla which we recommend include Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) and Blind Spot Monitor.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

But it is safer than many comparable models.
