Toyota Safety Sense

Toyota now offers some of the most advanced safety and security features available in any car at any price point on the road today. These sophisticated safety features are all part of Toyota Safety Sense™, which is currently offered standard or as an available package on many new vehicles in the Toyota lineup here at Toyota of Gastonia, where we proudly serve drivers from nearby Mt. Holly all the way to Shelby. Find out more about all of the Toyota Safety Sense™ features here!

Toyota Safety Sense™

Toyota Safety Sense™ encompasses a multitude of systems that provide preventative safety and driver assistance features for Toyota drivers. The suite comes in two different configurations: Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C) is offered for compact vehicles, while Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) is offered for both midsize and larger vehicles. Both offer state-of-the-art safety technologies with a few key distinctions.

Utilizing both a camera and laser detectors to monitor the road and help prevent accidents, Toyota Safety Sense™ C keeps you safe with the help of the following three safety systems:

Toyota Safety Sense™ P, on the other hand, uses both millimeter wave radar and an external camera to provide multiple advanced features for drivers, including:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian and Vehicle Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

These features are offered to provide enhanced safety in three ways. The Pre-Collision System helps mitigate forward collisions or prevent them altogether when possible. The Lane Departure Alert system helps keep drivers in their lanes and can also help prevent fatigue-influenced or distracted driving-related accidents. The Automatic High Beams, of course, greatly improve visibility and nighttime driving safety.
