Which Features Are Included with TSS?

Toyota Safety Sense™ helps you stay alert and aware of your surroundings with the following features:

  • Pre-Collision System—alerts you to possible frontal collisions, and in some situations, can apply the brakes if you don’t react in time.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection—uses an integrated camera and radar systems to detect pedestrians, as well as straight-ahead cars.
  • Lane Departure Alert—uses a windshield-mounted camera to sense lane departure, and warns you so you can re-center your vehicle quickly.
  • Automatic High Beams—detects the headlights and taillights of other drivers’ vehicles using a camera, and adjusts your high beams to low or high, depending on the situation.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control—allows you to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead, thanks to radar technology and a windshield-mounted camera.
  • Road Sign Assist—detects speed limit signs, stop signs, and more, and displays them on the MID, so you’ll be less likely to miss one.
  • Lane Tracing Assist—works when Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is in use. LTA monitors lane markings and straight-ahead cars to help keep you centered on Cottage Grove roadways.

Compared to Honda Sensing®, Toyota Safety Sense™ offers many of the same features. What makes Toyota Safety Sense™ the better pick is the fact that it’s standard on almost all Toyota vehicles.
