Advanced safety technologies will be introduced as standard equipment on some models.
Toyota has announced that the second generation of its Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) package of active safety features will begin rolling out as standard equipment on certain Toyota vehicles beginning in mid-2018.
The second generation TSS has been expanded to help improve driver situational awareness while providing additional protections for a pedestrian or bicyclist in front of the vehicle.
Th new or updated technologies will include:
•Pre-Collision System (updated) with enhanced deceleration capabilities and the ability to help detect a collision with a pedestrian in front of the vehicle during the day and at night, and bicyclist in front of the vehicle during the day;
•Lane Departure Alert (updated) enhanced with “road edge detection” to increase the vehicle’s ability to help drivers stay in their lane;
•Lane Tracing Assist (new), which provides steering support to help the driver keep the vehicle centred in its lane when Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is in operation;
•Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (updated) with enhanced forward recognition and acceleration/deceleration performance across a wide range of speeds.
