Toyota Safety Sense
Toyota Safety Sense
Toyota Safety Sense is a package of active safety systems designed to keep you and your passengers protected in all types of traffic. Around town and at lower speeds Toyota Safety Sense can help prevent collisions, while on the open road and at higher speeds it aims to reduce the severity of any impact by supporting your awareness and decision-making with leading safety technology.
Pre-Collision System with Autonomous Emergency Braking*
The Pre-Collision System uses a radar sensor and a camera to determine whether a frontal collision with another vehicle or pedestrian is imminent and if necessary, will warn you with an audio and visual alert to urge you to take evasive action.
It then prepares the Brake Assist system to provide maximum braking assistance, if you do not brake in time it may also automatically apply the brakes to help you avoid the collision or reduce the speed of the impact.
*Cyclist and Pedestrian detection options available on selected models.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control*
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control helps make driving safer by keeping a constant pre-set distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead, enabling you to pay more attention to the road conditions and the vehicles surroundings.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control operates when the vehicle speed exceeds approximately 40km/h (or down to 0km/h with All Speed) and maintains an adjustable vehicle-to-vehicle distance by automatically accelerating up to a set speed or decelerating your vehicle to match the speed changes of the vehicle ahead without having to use the accelerator or brakes.
*All Speed available on selected models.
Lane Departure Alert*
Lane Departure Alert is designed to reduce the possibility of an accident due to your vehicle unintentionally drifting out of its lane while driving on highways.
The system recognises visible white and yellow lane markings and if it detects the possibility of lane departure, will urge you to steer back into the lane using a warning buzzer and a visual display.
YAW Assist function provides assistance by applying a small braking force for a short time to help the driver keep the vehicle in its lane.
*YAW Assist function available on selected models.
Lane Tracing Assist
Lane Tracing Assist is designed to reduce the possibility of an accident due to your vehicle unintentionally drifting out of its lane while driving on highways.
The system recognises visible white and yellow lane markings and can recognise the roadside even when there is no lane marking. If it detects the possibility of lane departure, it will urge you to steer back into the lane using a warning buzzer and a visual display.
The system can also provide assistance by applying a small force to the steering wheel for a short time to help the driver keep the vehicle in its lane.
Automatic High Beam*
Automatic High Beam is designed to help improve forward visibility when driving at night by making maximum use of the high beam headlights.
The system uses a camera to detect the headlights and taillights of vehicles ahead, or bright environments such as city streets, and automatically switches between high beam and low beam as required to avoid dazzling other drivers.
Adaptive High Beam automatically controls the distribution of light from the headlights as necessary to avoid dazzling other drivers.
*Adaptive High Beam available on selected models.
Road Sign Assist
Road Sign Assist monitors road speed signs using a camera and then displays the current speed limit to the driver via the Multi-Information Display and Head-Up Display (if equipped). The system can be configured to provide an audio and/or visual alert if the vehicle speed exceeds a designated threshold above the posted limit.
