Toyota's GOA: Engineering Your Safety

JamesFeb 23, 2024, 09:25 PM

GOA (Global Outstanding Assessment) is a body technology developed by Toyota, aiming to disperse the impact force in the event of an inevitable collision, to ensure the passenger cabin remains un-deformed and maximize the safety of the passengers within the vehicle.


The GOA body technology is unique to Toyota, taking the driver's cabin as a safety zone and, according to the safety standards of most countries in the world, combined with the actual occurrence of accidents, it is a passive safety technology developed after repeatedly collision experiments. It encompasses three aspects: high-strength cabin, highly efficient kinetic energy-absorbing body, and passenger restraint systems. The former two ensure that the front body of the vehicle absorbs collision energy during a collision, and disperses it to the framework of various parts of the body, minimizing deformation of the driving cabin to ensure the safety of the driver and passengers; the restraint system securely restrains the passengers in the seat during a collision to prevent injuries from coming off the seat due to violent collision.


GOA body has 8 elements:

1、 The body is stamped in one piece, with no welded structure;

2、 Large bumper reinforcement plates;

3、 Front longitudinal beams are arranged in a straight line;

4、 Reinforcing beams from the cross beam to the front pillar are used;

5、 The mid-pillar section is reinforced;

6、 The front pillar penetrates into the lower door opening;

7、 The lower door opening reinforcement rib is directly connected to the rear wheel cover;

8、 Anti-collision steel beams are used inside the door.
