Toyota Safety Sense

Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) protects what’s important: the people inside your vehicle! If you are looking for safety and reliability, you have come to the right place. TSS is on many new Toyota vehicles at no additional cost. Each vehicle has a variety of safety features uniquely designed to keep you and your passengers safe! Below is a brief description of some of the features to help you better understand their purposes and how they will help you!


Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

This feature uses an in-vehicle camera and a radar or laser sensor to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in front of your car. This Pre-Collision System helps you avoid a potential collision, prompting you to take action using audio and visual alerts. If you apply the brakes, the system may apply additional force using Brake Assist and if you do not brake in time, it may automatically apply the brakes to help reduce the likelihood or severity of the collision.


Lane Departure Alert

Lane Departure Alert is a safety feature designed to detect lane departure when your vehicle is traveling at 32 mph or higher (on roads with visible lane markings). Some vehicles are equipped with Steering Assist which has the capability of making small corrective steering inputs when the system detects unintentional drifting.


Automatic High Beams

This feature uses an in-vehicle camera to detect headlights and taillights of surrounding vehicles to help you see more clearly at night without endangering other drivers. The system automatically switches between the high and low beams accordingly.


Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control works similarly to regular cruise control, allowing you to set a speed to keep your vehicle at. However, if the vehicle in front of you is driving at a slower speed, this feature will adjust your speed utilizing vehicle-to-vehicle distance control to help you maintain a preset distance between the vehicles. The cruise control does not deactivate when your vehicle slows down due to the car in front of you. Once there is no vehicle within the set range, the system will accelerate the vehicle back to the preset speed.
