Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

This integrated camera and radar system is designed to help reduce the likelihood of colliding with a preceding car or pedestrian. The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) can help mitigate or avoid impact with a vehicle or pedestrian in certain situations. Using a camera and radar, PCS w/PD provides both audio and visual alerts, and if you don't react, the system is designed to brake automatically.


Bicyclist Detection

During daylight conditions, the in-vehicle camera and a radar sensor or a laser sensor work together to help detect a bicyclist ahead and will prompt you to take action using audio and visual warnings if a collision is likely.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

This high-tech cruise control uses radar behind the Toyota badge plus a camera on the windshield designed to adjust your speed, helping you maintain a preset distance from the car in front of you. Intended for highway use, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) and Full-Speed Range DRCC let you drive at a preset speed. They also use vehicle-to-vehicle distance control to help maintain a preset distance from the vehicle ahead of you.

Lane Departure Alert

A camera on your windshield may help you avoid the consequences of unintended lane departure by alerting you when it senses that you've veered from your lane. When detecting white or yellow lane markings, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) is designed to issue an audio/visual warning if it detects an inadvertent lane departure. The system is also designed to provide gentle corrective steering if the driver does not take corrective action.


Road Edge Detection

Road Edge Detection scans for the boundary between asphalt and the side of the road, such as grass, soil or a curb and helps keep drivers in their desired lane. If the system determines that the driver is not taking corrective steering action, the Steering Assist function will initiate and provide gentle corrective steering to help keep your Toyota in the lane.

Automatic High Beams

A camera on your windshield aids nighttime driving by using a camera to detect headlights and taillights of preceding vehicles, and toggling accordingly between high and low beams. Automatic High Beams (AHB) are designed to help you see more clearly at night at speeds above 25 mph. The AHB system is designed to detect the headlights and taillights of other vehicles, then automatically toggle between high and low beams.
