Parking Safety (available on certain models)
Take the guesswork out of backing in and backing up, thanks to a number of technologies that increase your field of vision. Toyota’s Backup Cameras, Rear Cross Traffic Alert system that warns of approaching vehicles when backing up, and Intelligent Parking Assist will park a vehicle virtually unassisted.
Active safety technologies are designed to help when the unexpected happens. Blind Spot Monitor and Lane Keep Assist issue alerts to warn you of hidden danger. Traction Control helps you safely traverse wet, icy, loose, or uneven surfaces. Vehicle Stability Control helps prevent wheel slip by reducing engine power and applying necessary brake force automatically. Anti-lock Brakes prevent wheel lock during a sudden stop by applying pulsing brake pressure. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution enhances stability while braking, while Brake Assist detects sudden braking and adds full pressure to prevent a collision.
Pre-Collision System warns when an obstacle is detected by radar, then automatically applies brakes to reduce the severity of impact and tightens seatbelts to help protect occupants.
From airbags to seat belts, to impact-absorbing body structures that channel impact energy away from the cabin — Toyota vehicles are loaded with passive safety measures. They have also specially designed headrests and driver and front passenger seats to help reduce impact effects such as whiplash.
