Toyota Safety Sense C

Pre-Collision System (PCS)
Toyota's Pre-Collision System technology helps avoid or reduce the impact speed and damage in certain frontal collision with other vehicles. PCS will actually stop your vehicle if it detects something in-front of it.

How Pre-Collision System Works
Step 1. Vehicle detects another vehicle
Step 2. Vehicle will display brake-icon on the dash
Step 3. If driver does not press brake, vehicle will provide additional braking force during emergency braking

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)
Lane Departure Alert (LDA) Alerts you if you start to drift out of your lane when visible lane markings are detected.

How Lane Departure Alert Works
Step 1. Painted Lines are detected on side of the road
Step 2. Nothing will light up if within lines
Step 3. When crossing a line, display will highlight the painted lines you're going over

Automatic High Beam (AHB)
Designed to detect oncoming vehicles’ lights and depending upon the circumstances, AHB can switch between high and low beams for you.

How Automatic High Beams Work
Step 1. Make sure your automatic high beam button has been activated (lower left of steering wheel)
Step 2. Turn on high beam lights
Step 3. Your vehicle will detect oncoming traffic and automatically lower your high beams until the vehicle has passed and will turn back to high.

Toyota Safety Sense P

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

Provides collision avoidance or damage mitigation support in speed ranges in which frontal collisions are likely to occur. In certain conditions, the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection may also help to detect pedestrians and help prevent or mitigate a collision.

How It Works
Step 1. Vehicle detects another vehicle or pedestrian
Step 2. Vehicle will display brake on the dash
Step 3. If driver does not press brake, vehicle will provide additional braking force during emergency braking

Lane Departure Assist With Steering Assist

Lane Departure Alert (LDA) Alerts you if you start to drift out of your lane when visible lane markings are detected. The steering assist function may provide corrective steering action if necessary.

How It Works
Step 1. Painted Lines are detected on side of the road
Step 2. Nothing will light up if your vehicle is within lines
Step 3. When crossing a line, display will highlight the painted lines you're going over

How Automatic High Beams Work
Step 1. Make sure your automatic high beam button has been activated (lower left of steering wheel)
Step 2. Turn on high beam lights
Step 3. Your vehicle will detect oncoming traffic and automatically lower your high beams until the vehicle has passed and will turn back to high.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Dynamic cruise control can automatically adjust your speed to help maintain a pre-set following distance between you and the vehicle in front. This can be turned off by holding down the radar cruise control button until you hear a beep.


Toyota Safety Sense 2.0

Pre-Collision System with Daytime/Low Light Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, Plus Daytime Bicylce Detection

Provides collision avoidance or damage mitigation support in speed ranges in which frontal collisions are likely to occur. With the TSS 2.0 your pre-collision system can detect vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles during the day and can detect vehicles, pedestrians at night.

How It Works
Step 1. Vehicle detects another vehicle, pedestrian or bicyclist
Step 2. Vehicle will display brake on the dash
Step 3. If driver does not press brake, vehicle will provide additional braking force during emergency braking

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection

Lane Departure Alert (LDA) Alerts you if you start to drift out of your lane when visible lane markings are detected. The steering assist function may provide corrective steering action if necessary.

How It Works
Step 1. Painted Lines and edge of the roads are detected
Step 2. Nothing will light up if your vehicle is within lines/road
Step 3. When crossing a line, display will highlight the painted lines you're going over
Step 4. Steering assist will take over to correct small corrective steering inputs


Automatic High Beam (AHB)
Designed to detect oncoming vehicles’ lights and depending upon the circumstances, AHB can switch between high and low beams for you.

How Automatic High Beams Work
Step 1. Make sure your automatic high beam button has been activated (lower left of steering wheel)
Step 2. Turn on high beam lights
Step 3. Your vehicle will detect oncoming traffic and automatically lower your high beams until the vehicle has passed and will turn back to high.

Lane Trace Assist

Lane trace assist works with the Dynamic radar cruise control to keep your vehicle in the middle of the road. Your hands must remain in the steering wheel to work. Not available on manual transmission.

How It Works
Step 1. Lane trace assist can only be activated with full speed dynamic radar cruise control is activated
Step 2. Uses camera above windshield and millimeter wave radar to detect the white and yellow lines
Step 3. Tracks the center of the road and provides steering assist to guide you back into the middle of the road.

 

Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

Using forward sensing radar technology, DRCC can automatically adjust vehicle speed to help maintain a pre-set following distance between you and the vehicle directly in front of you.
