Toyota Safety Sense Overview
Toyota Safety Sense refers Toyota's state of the art safety and accident avoidance technology designed to work with the driver to assess the drivers surroundings, detect collisions, and where possible, prevent the accident from ever happening.
On this page, you will find a comprehensive resource for Toyota Safety Sense Technology and facts, so you can make an informed decision on your next Toyota vehicle, ensuring you get the safety you need.
Pre-Collision Detection System with Pedestrian Detection
Pre-collision System uses an in-vehicle camera and laser radar to detect objects in front of your vehicle, alerting you with audio and visual alerts to help avoid frontal collisions. If you apply the brakes, the system may provide additional "Brake Assist" force depending on how strongly the brake pedal is depressed. If the system detects a potential collision and the driver has not applied the brakes within a set time, the system may automatically apply the brakes, reducing speed to help avoid the collision or help reduce the impact. In certain conditions, the Pre-collision System included with the Toyota Safety Sense P package may also help to detect pedestrians and help prevent or mitigate a collision.
Lane Departure Alert
When the turn signal is not activated, the Lane Departure Alert function is designed to assist a driver from unintentionally deviating from their lane. On some models with Toyota Safety Sense P, there is an additional Steering Assist function. When turned on, it provides a small corrective steering input to the steering wheel for a short period of time to help keep the vehicle in its lane.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Available on Toyota Safety Sense P, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses a millimetre-wave radar and an in-vehicle camera to help maintain a pre-set distance with the vehicle ahead of you. It then automatically adjusts your vehicle speed, helping to maintain a safe following distance, and smooth acceleration and deceleration.
The Blind-Spot monitor is designed to improve safety by detecting vehicles in the blind-spot of the driver, and alerting the driver if they are signalling to change lanes and will end up cutting off another driver.
Automatic High Beam Assist
Automatic High Beam helps decrease the risk of nighttime accidents using an in-vehicle camera to help detect both the headlights of oncoming traffic and the taillights of vehicles ahead. When activated, Automatic High Beam automatically switches between high and low beams as appropriate, providing you with the most light possible without dazzling other drivers.
