Toyota Safety Sense: safety comes standard with Toyota

Toyota’s Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance systems are not necessarily different from other active safety systems offered by other manufacturers.

Toyota’s Toyota Safety Sense driver assistance systems are not necessarily different from other active safety systems offered by other manufacturers. Toyota Safety Sense system technologies can warn you of a potential danger and even intervene if you do not react to prevent an accident, for example.

That said, Toyota does not like to charge extra for its safety systems, and the Japanese manufacturer has decided to offer the Toyota Safety Sense system as standard equipment (yes, standard equipment!) on 90% of its best-selling models. Toyota is therefore the first manufacturer in the majority of segments where it offers a model to offer active safety systems at no extra cost.

Two Toyota Safety Sense Systems

There are two Toyota Safety Sense systems in the Toyota lineup. The first, Toyota Safety Sense C, includes three driver assistance technologies: Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams. Using a camera and radar, these systems are able to detect a vehicle in front of you and brake automatically to prevent an accident, warn you if your Toyota is about to change lanes unintentionally, or detect another vehicle and activate the low-beams automatically.

As you can see, Toyota not only improves your safety, but the safety of other vehicles on the road as well.

The Toyota Safety Sense P offers four driving assistance devices: Pre-Collision System with pedestrian detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and Automatic High Beams

The pre-collision system operates in the same way as in the Toyota Safety Sense C group, but it can also detect pedestrians. The lane departure prevention system also features active steering in order to keep your vehicle in the right lane automatically. Meanwhile, the intelligent cruise control keeps a predetermined distance with the vehicle in front of you when cruise control is activated.
