2018 Toyota Camry Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

Like anywhere else, driving on the streets of Mt. Holly can be incredibly unpredictable and even dangerous at times, so you want as many features working to keep you as safe and aware of your surroundings as possible. More and more vehicles throughout Shelby these days are being sold with driver assist safety suites, and Toyota Safety Sense™ and Honda Sensing® are two of the leading packages in the industry. Find out which is better, and test out Toyota Safety Sense™ at Toyota of Gastonia in Gastonia.

Which is the Better Package?

If you look at what’s included in both the Toyota Safety Sense™and Honda Sensing® packages, the offerings are somewhat similar. Both models are offered with comparable versions of features like:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Alert
  • Lane Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Forward Collision Warning and Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection

The most notable difference is that Toyota has made its driver assist package standard on almost every vehicle in its lineup! This makes advanced safety available to Gastonia drivers at less of a cost than if they opt for a new Honda vehicle.

Toyota Models with Standard Toyota Safety Sense™

Almost the entire Toyota lineup comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™, including even the base models of the following sedans, SUVs, hatchbacks, hybrids, and trucks:

Honda Models with Standard Honda Sensing®

While several Honda models offer Honda Sensing® as an upgrade or a standard feature on select trims, here’s the short list of Honda vehicles that come standard with the Honda Sensing® driver assist suite across the entire trim lineup:

  • Honda Accord / Accord Hybrid
  • Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid / Clarity Electric / Clarity Fuel Cell

Toyota Stands Out When It Comes to Safety

The facts speak for themselves! In addition to the superior accessibility of Toyota Safety Sense™, Toyota recently earned the distinction of having the most 2017 Top Safety Pick+ Awards from the IIHS. Thus, Mt. Holly drivers can better keep everyone safe on the road with a new Toyota vehicle from Toyota of Gastonia.
