Toyota Safety Sense

Toyota Safety Sense features a newly developed set of five active technologies – Pre-Collision System or Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beam, Road Sign Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control – with the ultimate goal being to reduce traffic accidents as much as possible, helping to create a safer driving environment for everyone, while supporting you in your daily journey.


Toyota Safety Sense technology helps keep potentially dangerous situations at bay and you and your passengers secure: the Pre-Collision System uses a camera and laser sensors to scan for vehicles ahead and contribute to avoid or mitigate collisions; the Lane Departure Alert warns you if the car moves out of lane inadvertently; Automatic High Beam switches beam for safer night-time driving; Road Sign Assist displays specific road signs on the new TFT display; Pre - Collision System with Pedestrian Detection uses a camera and a radar to detect possible collisions with pedestrians; and Adaptive Cruise Control keeps you at a minimum preset distance from the vehicle in front. Thanks to all these active safety systems, Toyota Safety Sense contributes to reduction of collision risks which results in both a possible lower insurance premium and a safer driving experience.

Pre-Collision System

Toyota Safety Sense's Pre-Collision System uses a camera and laser to detect other vehicles in the road ahead. When the possibility of collision is detected the driver is alerted with audio and visual warnings and brake assistance is activated. If the driver fails to brake in time the brakes automatically engage to prevent or mitigate a collision.

Technical name: Pre-Crash Safety System

Lane Departure Alert

Using a camera to detect the lane markings in the road ahead, Toyota Safety Sense's Lane Departure Alert will alert the driver with audible and visual warnings if the vehicle starts to deviate from its lane without the turn indicator being applied – the driver can then take corrective action.

Automatic High Beam

Toyota Safety Sense's Automatic High Beam is designed to optimise visibility during night driving for all road users. A camera detects the lights of oncoming vehicles and leading traffic whilst also monitoring the brightness of streetlights. It switches automatically between high and low beam for safer night-time driving.

Road Sign Assist

Toyota Safety Sense's Road Sign Assist monitors the road signs ahead, displaying useful information such as the current speed limit or overtaking restrictions in clear view on the new colour TFT cockpit display. The system also provides a visual and acoustic warning if you are not following the road sign indication.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

Toyota Safety Sense's Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection uses a camera and a radar to detect possible collisions with pedestrians. When the possibility of a collision with a pedestrian is detected the driver is alerted with audio and visual warnings and brake assistance is activated. If the driver fails to brake in time the brakes automatically engage to prevent or mitigate a collision.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Toyota Safety Sense's Adaptive Cruise Control keeps you at a minimum preset distance from the vehicle in front. If this distance falls, the system reduces your speed and eventually the brakes will be applied and brake lights activated. If the distance increases again, it will gradually accelerate until you return to your chosen cruising speed.

Please be aware that Toyota Safety Sense availability varies according to model and grade as well as country of purchase. All specifications and equipment can be obtained from the Toyota Authorised Retailer near you.
