Toyota Safety Sense
Built with safety in mind
Toyota Safety Sense
Toyota Safety Sense are packages 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 travelling 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 is imminent. If necessary, you’ll be warned with audio and visual alerts urging you to take evasive action.
If you don’t brake in time, it may automatically apply the Brake Assist System to help you avoid the collision or reduce the speed of impact.
*Cyclist and Pedestrian detection options available on selected models.
Dynamic Radar for Safer Cruise Control
This clever feature keeps a constant pre-set distance between you and the vehicle ahead, enabling you to pay more attention to the road conditions and your surroundings.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control operates when your speed exceeds approximately 40km/h and maintains an adjustable vehicle-to-vehicle distance by automatically accelerating or decelerating to match the speed of the vehicle ahead. All without using your accelerator or brakes.
*All Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is available on selected models, and operates from 0km/h.
Lane Departure Alert Keeps You on Track
Lane Departure Alert is designed to reduce the possibility of an accident due to your vehicle unintentionally drifting out of its lane.
The system recognises visible white and yellow lane markings. If it detects the possibility of lane departure, it will urge you to steer back into the correct lane using a warning buzzer and a visual display.
Lane Tracing Assist
The system detects visible white and yellow lane markings. It can even recognise the roadside when there are no lane markings. If the system detects the possibility of lane departure, it will urge you to steer back into the correct lane using a warning buzzer and a visual display.
The system can also apply a small amount of force to the steering wheel to help keep your vehicle in its lane if required.
Automatic High Beams Keep You Focused
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 and low beams as required to avoid dazzling other drivers.
Road Sign Assist Keeps You Within the Limit
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 exceeds a designated threshold above the speed limit.
