There is no official safety review of the Toyota Mirai. Neither authority has conducted safety reviews on the fuel-cell vehicle. While we understand that cars above a certain price point don't get smashed, certain exceptions should be made for hydrogen fuel cell cars, since the hydrogen is stored under immense pressure. We'd love to see safety ratings in this regard. On the upside, the Mirai was built to showcase hydrogen technology. We're 100% convinced Toyota spent thousands of hours running simulations and doing real-life tests to ensure the tank isn't compromised in a crash.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Both Mirai models come standard with eight airbags - including knee airbags for the front occupants - a rearview camera, tire pressure monitoring, hill start assist, traction and stability control, and ABS. Blind-spot assist and rear cross-traffic assist are also standard.
Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 + is standard fitment and includes pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane departure alert with steering assist, lane tracing assist, auto high beams, full-speed range active cruise control, and road sign assist.
The Limited model also gains front and rear parking assist with automatic braking, a color head-up display, surround-view camera system, and advanced park.

The Mirai is a remarkably trouble-free car considering the amount of technology that goes into it. It has been recalled once for a problematic stability control system on startup, but it affects only 2022 and 2021 models. Since it was introduced in 2016, only a handful of complaints have been lodged against it. There is no reliability rating from J.D. Power for the Mirai, but that's not surprising, given the limited availability.
It's only natural to doubt new technology, but Toyota provides an ironclad warranty for all the major components. The basic warranty is valid for three years or 36,000 miles. In addition to that, the powertrain is covered for five years and 60,000 miles. The fuel cell and hybrid systems are covered by an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty, while the hybrid battery is covered for a full ten years or 150,000 miles.
