Safety is Standard on Toyota SUVs

With Toyota Safety Sense coming standard on our newest Toyota SUVs, you’ll have great peace of mind with your purchase. Toyota Safety Sense is a suite of active safety features that were designed to protect you and your passengers on the road. Safety technology available with Toyota Safety Sense includes: 

 

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection – An integrated camera and radar system that helps to reduce the likelihood of collisions with a preceding vehicle or pedestrian. (1) (2)
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – A cruise control system that uses a radar behind the Toyota badge plus a camera on the windshield to adjust your vehicle’s speed in order to maintain a preset distance from the car in front of you. (3)
  • Lane Departure Alert – A camera on your windshield that aids you in avoiding unintended lane departure by alerting you when it detects that you’ve veered from your lane. (4)
  • Automatic High Beams – A camera on your windshield that aids nighttime driving by detecting headlights and tailgates of preceding vehicles, and automatically toggling between high and low beams. (5)
  • Lane Tracing Assist – Works with Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (6) (7) whenever lane markers are visible to keep the vehicle centered and in its lane. (8) (7)
  • Road Sign Assist – Uses a forward-facing intelligent camera to detect speed limit signs, stop signs, do not enter signs, and yield signs. (9)

 

Additional Safety Features

Our Toyota SUVs come with many additional safety features to help make every trip around Tampa even safer. Shoppers considering our 2021 CH-R models will be ecstatic about the 10 standard airbags (10) that come in this SUV. RAV4 drivers will enjoy the available Blind Spot Monitor (11) that warns you when a vehicle enters your blind spot on either side.

1 – The TSS Pre-Collision System is designed to help avoid or reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness is dependent on many factors including road, weather and vehicle conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

2 – 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, and weather, light and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

3 – Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. System effectiveness is dependent on many factors including road, weather and traffic conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

4 – Lane Departure Alert is designed to read visible 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. Effectiveness is dependent on many factors including road, weather and vehicle conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

5 – Automatic High Beams operate at speeds above 25 mph. Factors such as a dirty windshield, weather, lighting and terrain limit effectiveness, requiring the driver to manually operate the high beams. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

RSA is a driver support system that utilizes the vehicle’s forward-facing camera and navigation system (when data is available) to recognize certain road signs and provide information to the driver via the multi-information display and/or Head-Up Display. Effectiveness is dependent on road, weather, vehicle and sign conditions. Use common sense when using RSA and do not drive distracted. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.

To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating airbag, always wear seatbelts and sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
