April 13th, 2022 by

Toyota has long been known as one of the safest vehicles on the market. With Toyota Safety Sense, drivers and passengers can rest assured that they’re riding in a vehicle that sets the standard for roadway safety. This standard comes with many great active safety features that you’ll love.

 

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian DetectionPre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection will help avoid impact with any vehicle, bicycle, or pedestrian in various situations. This system uses a radar and camera to provide both audio and visual alerts to the driver. If you don’t react quickly, your Toyota vehicle is specifically designed to brake automatically.

 

Dynamic Radar Cruise ControlDynamic Radar Cruise Control

With Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), intended for highway use, your car will drive at a set speed. An imperative component of why DRCC is safer than other vehicles is its vehicle-to-vehicle distance control that helps to keep a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you.

 

Lane Departure AlertLane Departure Alert With Steering Assist

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist detects white and yellow lane markings. It’s specifically designed to issue an audio or visual warning if it senses that your vehicle is inadvertently departing your lane. This feature is even designed to provide gentle corrective steering if the driver doesn’t take action quickly.

Automatic High BeamsAutomatic High Beams

Another great feature of Toyota Safety Sense is automatic high beams. With Automatic High Beams, you’ll be able to see more clearly at night when driving at speeds above 25 miles per hour. This system is crafted to detect any headlights or taillights from other vehicles and will automatically toggle between your high and low beams.

Lane Tracing AssistLane Tracing Assist

By utilizing detectable lane markers from Lane Departure Alert and preceding vehicles from DRCC, Lane Trace Assist will help your Toyota Vehicle stay centered in its lane. This will provide your vehicle with an added safety space from other vehicles traveling on the roadway.

 

Road Sign AssistRoad Sign Assist

Road Sign Assist uses an intelligent camera to detect speed limit signs, Do Not Enter signs, yield signs, and stop signs. The driver will receive a visual cue of the sign on the Multi-Information Display located on the lower half of the windshield. This feature helps to ensure that drivers can adequately be informed of all roadway signs without taking their eyes off the road.

 

 

Road Edge Detection

Road Edge Detection scans for the boundary between the side of the road and asphalt. It can detect soil, curb, or even grass. If your Toyota vehicle senses that you’re not taking corrective steering action to miss going off the roadway, it will provide the Steering Assist function. This essentially initiates and provides gentle corrective steering to help keep your Toyota vehicle in your lane.
