Toyota Safety Sense

Evolution of Safety

We're continually investing in research and development to find new ways to raise our quality, working to help keep you safe. That means leading the way when it comes to packaging safety features on our vehicles – so when you get behind the wheel, you can focus on the journey ahead and the simple joy of driving.

Toyota believes that no matter the destination, everyone deserves to arrive safely. That’s why Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) is standard on virtually all Toyota models. TSS is an advanced suite of active safety designed to support driver awareness, decision making, and vehicle operation over a wide range of speeds.

Crash protection starts with crash prevention. Packaged together in an integrated system, TSS1 helps address three key areas of accident protection: preventing or mitigating frontal collisions2, keeping drivers within their lane3, and enhancing road safety during night-time driving4.
Toyota Safety SenseTM 2.0
TSS Pre-Collision System
Provides collision avoidance or collision mitigation support in speed ranges where frontal collisions are likely to occur. For TSS 2.01, PCS is designed to detect bicycles in daytime situations, as well as vehicles and pedestrians in both daytime and low-light situations -- helping to prevent or mitigate a collision.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
Alerts you if you start to drift out of your lane when travelling on relatively straight roads with clear lane markings, road edges or curbs. The Steering Assist function may also provide small corrective steering inputs.
Automatic High Beam
Designed to detect oncoming and preceding vehicles’ lights and depending upon the circumstances, Automatic High Beam (AHB) can switch between high and low beams for you.
Lane Trace Assist
LTA6 is designed to work with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control5 to keep the vehicle centered in its visibly marked lane and preemptively avoid unintended lane departures. LTA does require the driver's hands to remain on the steering wheel. Some models equipped with TSS 2.01 will not have the LTA feature. Check your Owner's Manual for more details.


Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

DRCC can automatically adjust vehicle speed to help maintain a preset following distance between you and the vehicle directly in front of you. Most TSS 2.0 models will feature Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control5, which is designed to allow low-speed following, speed matching, stopping, and acceleration/deceleration to a preceding vehicle. Manual transmission models receive high-speed range DRCC instead of Full-Speed Range DRCC.


Quality Builds Excellence

Toyota vehicles are built with legendary quality, durability, and reliability. Not only does this mean years of driving enjoyment, it also extends to your safety behind the wheel.

Always Testing

Toyota crashes more than 600 vehicles a year – for safety purposes. We’ve developed a set of comprehensive crash tests with a number of sensors at the prototype phase, and with each collision, we examine the effects and make improvements to the design. Repeating the process over and over, we are constantly creating and then analyzing possible collision scenarios.
