Safety features included with Toyota Safety Sense suite

  • Lane Departure Alert: Your Toyota vehicle’s windshield is outfitted with a camera that can detect where you are in relation to the road. If you start to veer outside the lines, you’ll be alerted to get back straight.  
  • Automatic High Beams: Night driving can be a challenge, and it can often be a hassle toggling between low and high beam lights to conform to surrounding traffic. With TSS outfitted, your Toyota can do so automatically thanks to the same camera and sensor! 
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: When you shift into cruise control, your Toyota model is highly capable of preventing you from tailgating. This is because of sensors onboard that can detect changes in traffic flow and adjust your speed accordingly.  
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: Your Toyota model is also capable of commandeering your brake system. If it detects a potential collision, it will engage your brakes to help you avoid serious impact!
