Toyota Safety Sense™ Features

Toyota Safety Sense™ and Toyota Safety Sense™ P were designed and created to keep you and your loved ones protected while on the roads in Columbia. These safety systems include:

  • The Automatic High Beams have a camera on your windshield to assist with nighttime driving as the camera detects headlights and taillights on other vehicles.
  • The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (also available with Bicyclist Detection) uses an integrated camera and radar system to lessen the likelihood of striking a vehicle or pedestrian.
  • The Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (also available with Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control) uses a radar that’s behind the Toyota badge and the camera on the windshield to adjust your speed and help keep a good distance from the car in front of you.
  • Lane Departure Alert (also available with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection) helps avoid the consequences of unintended lane departure and alerts you when your vehicle starts veering from the lane.
  • Lane Tracing Assist works with the Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) and the lane markers in this tool. When enabled, it uses the lines on the roads to keep your vehicle centered in its lane.
  • Road Sign Assist works with the forward-facing intelligent camera to detect speed limit, stop, do not enter, and yield signs and displays them on the MID.
