The 2017 Toyota Corolla now safer than ever

As mentioned earlier, there are several changes made to the 2017 Toyota Corolla, but it is at the safety level that the improvements are most noticeable. Indeed, for 2017, the Toyota Corolla comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense P which includes several active safety systems like the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams.
