Basic Safety

Every Toyota Camry comes with a variety of basic safety features to help prevent and mitigate the impact of a collision. These include front and rear side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, and front knee airbags for both the driver and front seat passenger. On top of that, every Camry features antilock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, and a rearview camera.

Advanced Safety Technology

In addition to the basic safety features that are offered on the Camry, you can also have this midsize sedan equipped with a number of advanced safety technologies that utilize cameras, sensors, warning systems, and forward-thinking driving systems to make you more aware of your surroundings and reduce the risk of a potential collision:

  • XSE and XLE Available Safety – If you choose to go with either of the top two trim levels on the Camry, you can get it equipped with a blind spot monitoring system with rear cross traffic alert.

  • Technology Package – In addition to other convenience and entertainment amenities, the Technology Package adds important driver assist features, including lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and forward collision mitigation.

Safety Connect
