Toyota Safety Sense™ in the New Toyota Lineup


Staying safe on the road is undoubtedly a top priority of any driver, so it’s worth taking the time to research what safety features automakers are including with their models before making a selection. With Toyota, you’re definitely in luck, because some of the most advanced safety and driver assistance features available today are offered via Toyota Safety Sense™, which is now included on many of the new Toyota vehicles available now at Palmer’s Toyota. Take a closer look at each of the included technologies, and get a better sense of how they all work!

Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C)

Even accessibly priced compact models like the new Toyota Yaris, Corolla iM, and Prius c are offered with a full suite of driver assistance features via Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C). This suite includes technologies such as:

  • Automatic High Beams – A nighttime, this system is able to tell when there is a vehicle up ahead on your side of the road or oncoming from the other side of the road. In these instances, it automatically switches between high beams and regular headlights in order to maximize your visibility without compromising other drivers’ visibility.
  • Lane Departure Alert – This system uses a camera system with sensors in order to tell if your vehicle is drifting from the center of your lane at 32+ mph. If it detects drifting, audible and visible alerts will prompt you to maneuver the vehicle back to the center.
  • Pre-Collision System – This system is able to send audible and visual warnings when it appears imminent that your vehicle is going to hit a vehicle in front of you. It utilizes Brake Assist to give you extra braking power and can even apply full autonomous braking at up to 50 mph.

Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P)

Should you opt for a midsize or larger vehicle, such as the new Corolla, C-HR, RAV4, or Highlander, then you’ll get this upgraded version of Toyota Safety Sense™ which includes more advanced versions of the aforementioned features, in addition to:

  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – At speeds of 25 and higher, this features lets you set your cruise control speed, at which point the vehicle will automatically speed up and slow down based on traffic patterns and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. There’s also a Full-Speed Range setting of this feature that works at any speed up to 110 mph.
  • Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection – The more advanced Vehicle Detection feature can apply autonomous emergency braking at speeds of up to 110 mph, while Pedestrian Detection sends you an alert and can apply the brakes when a pedestrian is detected while traveling at speeds between 7 and 50 mph.
  • Lane Departure Alert w/Steering Assist – This advanced version of LDA builds on the original by actually intervening to automatically make corrective moves to keep your vehicle in the center of its lane.
