New driver assistance features with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0

With each passing model year, the Toyota model line continues to wow us with its ability to stay ahead of the curve, both in terms of the high performance that you can expect out of its vehicles and how well they can do when it comes to keeping you safe and secure on board. There are a couple new driver assistance features with Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, the new safety suite available on most new Toyota models; we’ll tell you all about them today!  


Lane Tracing Assist 

We’ve basically been repeating this ad nauseum over the last few months, but it bears repeating; your Toyota is much smarter than you think. It has sensors that allow it to detect lane types and help you respond accordingly with traffic rules that correspond with said types. This way, it’ll be much easier for you to keep in line with the rules of the road, no matter which kind of road you’re on!

Road Sign Assist 

Your Toyota vehicle can also use its sensors to scope out different road signs and alert you to their presence, as well as what you should be doing at them. That means that you’ll be aware of every stop sign, speed limit, and sharp curve that the road has to throw at you, giving your drive that much more peace of mind!


Existing safety features on new Toyota vehicles 

Of course, all new Toyota vehicles will still be outfitted with the following innovations, as part of Toyota Safety Sense 1.0: 

  • Pre-Collision Alert 
  • Lane Departure Alert 
  • Automatic High Beams 
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control 
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection 

It’s these that have allowed many Toyota models to achieve very high safety ratings, some even receiving a coveted “Top Safety Pick Plus” designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety!
