Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) Overview Video

Pre-Collision System (LDA)

Toyota models equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ C can use this function to help avoid collisions. A camera and laser sensor work together to determine obstacles ahead, prompting an auditory and visual alert if an accident is imminent. The vehicle can even provide additional brake force thanks to Brake Assist. In some cases, properly equipped Toyota vehicles can automatically apply the brakes, reducing speed to help make the road a safer place for everyone.

If you're driving a car equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, then you can enjoy the added benefit of pedestrian detection. If a pedestrian is detected in the path of your vehicle, you will be alerted with visual and auditory cues to take evasive action. When it comes to preventing potential head-on collisions, this is your second line of defense (the first being your own attentiveness and intuition).

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)

Driving for long hours can create fatigue, making it difficult to stay within your designated lane on the highway. Thanks to Lane Departure Alert, your Toyota is able to recognize when you're unintentionally drifting out of your lane. You'll be alerted to adjust your course and remain within your lane. In some vehicles equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), you'll also benefit from an available Steering Assist function. This system can autonomously direct you back onto the right path, keeping you and your loved ones safe on long journeys.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA) Information Video

In addition to the alert functions of LDA, TSS-P equipped vehicles with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) will also feature a Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA). When equipped and enabled, if the system determines that the vehicle is on a path to unintentionally depart from its lane, the system may provide small corrective steering inputs to the steering wheel for a short period of time to help keep the vehicle in its lane.

Automatic High Beams (AHB)

Standard in both Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C) and Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), Automatic High Beams allow you to see the road ahead more clearly than ever before. Whether you're driving through fog, snow, rain or the darkness of night, you'll have no trouble seeing any obstacles ahead with these lights. Plus, your Toyota can detect oncoming traffic and automatically dim the headlights until the other vehicle has passed. 

Information about Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection Function (PCS w/PD)

Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection Function (PCS w/PD)

Automatic High Beams (AHB), 8 found in both TSS-C and TSS-P, is a safety system designed to help drivers see more of what's ahead at nighttime without dazzling other drivers. When enabled, AHB uses an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically switches between high and low beams as appropriate to provide the most light possible and enhance forward visibility. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles.

AHB is designed to function at speeds of approximately 25 mph or higher. Minimum speed may vary by vehicle.

Information about Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

If you buy a Toyota equipped with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, you can enjoy Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. In addition to maintaining a consistent speed, this feature will adjust your speed to keep you at a safe distance from vehicles ahead. It does this by using a front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar and camera to detect the speed and distance of other vehicles on the road. This allows your Toyota to automatically decelerate on its own without cancelling the cruise functionality, making for a smoother, more fuel-efficient ride.
