Safety Technology

OUR ULTIMATE GOAL: A WORLD WITHOUT ACCIDENTS

Promoting a safer world is one of Toyota's top priorities.

integrated technologies

Parking

Take the guessing out of backing in and backing up, thanks to technologies that increase your field of vision. Toyota has developed Backup Cameras with Guidelines for backing into parking spaces, a Rear Cross Traffic Alert system that warns you of approaching vehicles when backing up and Intelligent Parking Assist that can park a vehicle unassisted.

Active Safety

Designed to help when the unexpected happens. 

Blind Spot Monitor alerts you when vehicles are in your blind spot.

 Lane Departure Alert keeps you in your lane with audio and visual alerts to notify you when you are drifting out of your lane and when you add steering assist to that it provides small steering corrections to keep you in your lane. 

Traction Control limits wheel spin on slippery surfaces when travelling in a straight line. 

Vehicle Stability Control helps you to maintain control on slippery surfaces by reducing engine power and automatically applies necessary brake force.

Anti-lock Brakes prevent the wheels from locking during a sudden stop by applying 'pulsing' brake pressure.

Electronic Brake Force Distribution enhances stability while braking, while Brake Assist detects sudden braking and adds full pressure to prevent a collision.

Some technologies like Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management are now so advanced that they can anticipate your intentions and then automatically activate a variety of safety systems to ensure the highest possible level of vehicle control and stability.

Pre-Crash Safety

Sometimes accidents are unavoidable but Toyota has developed technology that can predict like likelihood of a collision, takes steps to reduce injury and damage, and in certain situations help to avoid an accident completely. Between certain speeds Pre-Collision System warns when an obstacle is detected by the radar, then automatically applies the brakes to reduce the severity of impact and tighten seatbelts to help protect the occupants.

Passive Safety

From airbags to seatbelts to impact-absorbing body structures that channel impact energy away from the cabin, Toyota vehicles are loaded with passive safety measures. Toyota has even specially designed their headrests and driver and front passenger seats to help reduce impact effects such as whiplash.

Evolution of Safety

Toyota is continuously investing in research and development to find new ways to raise our quality, working to keep you safe. That means leading the way when it comes to packaging safety features on our vehicles - so when yo get behind the wheel, you can focus on the journey ahead and the simple joy of driving.
