Toyota Safety Sense Systems
This Toyota safety system uses an in-vehicle camera and laser to help detect the vehicle in front of your vehicle, and can even determine the possibility of a frontal collision. It will prompt the driver to brake with an audio and visual alert. The system can even automatically apply the brakes if the driver fails to do so.
Lane Departure Alert
Never drift out of your lane again with Lane Departure Alert. If the system detects unintentional drifting, it alerts the driver with an audio and visual alert. In vehicles equipped with Electronic Power Steering, the system includes Steering Assist, which provides small corrective steering adjustments to keep the driver in the correct lane.
Automatic High Beams
The Automatic High Beams provide more than adequate visibility for the driver without blinding other drivers. An in-vehicle camera detects oncoming vehicles and the taillights of preceding vehicles and switches the Automatic High Beams between high and low.
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection Function (PCS w/PD)
When the Pre-Collision System is equipped with Pedestrian Detection, it not only provides an alert when it detects a preceding vehicle, but also when it detects a pedestrian in front of your vehicle. This Toyota safety system will provide a visual and audio warning, and will even apply the brakes should the driver fail to do so.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control works similarly to regular cruise control in that it allows the driver to set a specific speed. With DRCC, the driver can control the speed and distance in which it follows the preceding vehicle. It can even decelerate or accelerate should the following distance change.
