OUR COMMITMENT TO SAFETY

OUR ULTIMATE GOAL: A WORLD WITHOUT ACCIDENTS

Promoting a safer mobile world is – and always will be – one of Toyota’s top priorities. Through the development of innovative technologies, Toyota remains committed to ongoing safety improvements – a commitment that is recognized with accolades like multiple IIHS Awards.

Integrated Technologies

In pursuit of a safe driving environment, Toyota takes an integrated approach that brings together distinct areas of driving.

Parking

Take the guesswork out of backing in and backing up, thanks to a number of technologies that increase your field of vision. We’ve developed Backup Cameras with Guidelines for backing into parking spaces, a Rear Cross Traffic Alert* system that warns of approaching vehicles when backing up, and Intelligent Parking Assist that can park a vehicle virtually unassisted.

Active Safety

Active safety technologies are designed to help when the unexpected happens. Blind Spot Monitor** and Lane Keep Assist issue alerts to warn you of hidden danger. Traction Control helps you safely traverse wet, icy, loose or uneven surfaces. Vehicle Stability Control helps prevent wheel slip by reducing engine power and applying necessary brake force automatically. Anti-lock Brakes prevent wheel lock during a sudden stop by applying “pulsing” brake pressure. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution enhances stability while braking, while Brake Assist detects sudden braking and adds full pressure to prevent a collision. Some technologies, like Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management, are so advanced that they can anticipate your intentions and then automatically activate a variety of safety systems to ensure the highest possible level of vehicle control and stability.

Pre-Crash Safety

Sometimes accidents are unavoidable, but we’ve developed technologies that can predict the likelihood of a collision, take steps to reduce damage and injury, and in some situations, help avoid an accident altogether. Pre-Collision System*** warns when an obstacle is detected by radar, then automatically apply brakes to reduce the severity of impact and tighten seatbelts to help protect occupants.

Passive Safety

Sometimes accidents are unavoidable, but we’ve developed technologies that can predict the likelihood of a collision, take steps to reduce damage and injury, and in some situations, help avoid an accident altogether. Pre-Collision System*** warns when an obstacle is detected by radar, then automatically apply brakes to reduce the severity of impact and tighten seatbelts to help protect occupants.

Evolution of Safety

We’re continually investing in research and development to find new ways to raise our quality, working to help keep you safe. That means leading the way when it comes to packaging safety features on our vehicles – so when you get behind the wheel, you can focus on the journey ahead and the simple joy of driving.

Toyota Safety Sense*™

Toyota believes that no matter the destination, everyone deserves to arrive safely. Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) offers an advanced suite of safety features standard on virtually all models by Autumn 2017.

TSS is available in two packages.

TSS-C is currently available on 2018 Prius c, 2018 Yaris Hatchback, 2017 Corolla iM

Everyone deserves to arrive safely. Toyota Safety Sense C comes with features like: automatic high beam, lane departure alert, and pre-collision system. Toyota Safety Sense, just another way Toyota is helping to make safer roads for us all.

Pre-Collision System (PCS)**

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)2

Automatic High Beam (AHB)

** The TSS Pre-Collision System is designed to help avoid or reduce the impact speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, driver input and road conditions. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.

2 Lane Departure Alert is designed to read lane markers under certain conditions and provide visual and audible alerts when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.

 Automatic High Beam system operates at speeds above approximately 34 km/h. Factors such as a dirty windshield, variable weather, lighting conditions and hilly terrain will limit effectiveness, requiring the driver to manually turn it off. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.

TSS-P is currently available on:

2018 Sequoia, 2018 Corolla, 2018 Avalon, 2018 C-HR, 2018 Camry, 2018 Camry Hybrid, 2018 RAV4, 2018 RAV4 Hybrid, 2017 Prius Prime, 2017 Highlander, 2017 Highlander Hybrid, 2017 Avalon, 2017 RAV4, 2017 RAV4 Hybrid, 2017 Prius, 2016 RAV4 AWD (Limited Package), 2016 RAV4 Hybrid (Limited with Technology Package):

Everyone deserves to arrive safely. Toyota Safety Sense P comes with features like: automatic high beam, lane departure alert, pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, and dynamic radar cruise control. Toyota Safety Sense, just another way Toyota is helping to make safer roads for us all.

Pre-Collision System (PCS)**

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)2

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)3

Automatic High Beam (AHB)

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)1

*** The TSS Pre-Collision System is designed to help avoid or reduce the impact speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. The Pedestrian Detection system is designed to detect a pedestrian ahead of the vehicle, determine if impact is imminent and help reduce impact speed. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, size and position of pedestrians, driver input and weather, light and road conditions. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.

1 Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is designed to assist the driver and is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as weather, traffic and road conditions. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.

2 Lane Departure Alert is designed to read lane markers under certain conditions and provide visual and audible alerts when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.

3 Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist is designed to read lane markers under certain conditions and provide visual and audible alerts and slight steering force when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.

 Automatic High Beam system operates at speeds above approximately 34 km/h. Factors such as a dirty windshield, variable weather, lighting conditions and hilly terrain will limit effectiveness, requiring the driver to manually turn it off. Please see toyota.ca, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.
