But, you may be asking, what does Toyota Safety Sense P include and how does it keep me safe? Thankfully, Toyota of Orlando is here to answer those questions and more with our guide on this new vehicle safety feature.

What’s included in this vehicle safety feature?

Toyota Safety Sense P comes standard in several new Orlando Toyota models such as the:

  • Toyota Yaris
  • Toyota Highlander, Highlander Hybrid
  • Toyota Sienna
  • Toyota Corolla, Corolla Hatchback
  • Toyota Avalon, Avalon Hybrid
  • Toyota RAV4, RAV4 Hybrid
  • Toyota Prius, Prius C, Prius Prime
  • Toyota Sequoia
  • Toyota C-HR
  • Toyota Tundra
  • Toyota Tacoma
  • Toyota Land Cruiser

This vehicle safety feature is enhanced with several active systems that keep you safe during your commute. Here are the key highlights and what to expect from your new Orlando Toyota regarding safety:

Lane Departure Alert

Lane Departure Alert is designed to keep your Orlando Toyota vehicle in its lane by alerting drivers if they start to drift unexpectedly. This vehicle safety feature is activated after your vehicle reaches an excess speed of 32 mph or more and uses a specific noise as part of its warning system. Drivers using this feature should take notice that it’s been activated and check their immediate surroundings before returning to the center of their original lane.

 

Automatic High Beams

Driving in a low light area at night can make it difficult to see but using your high beams can also pose a hazard to drivers commuting the opposing way from you. This feature activates at speeds of 25 mph or greater and uses onboard cameras to detect the headlights of other vehicles driving around you. If other vehicles are sensed near your Orlando Toyota vehicle, the high beam lights will toggle themselves.

 

Pre-collision System

Driving around Orlando with bumper to bumper traffic wherever you go is a recipe for a fender bender. Luckily, Toyota Safety Sense P includes a pre-collision system that works to help you avoid that. Using an integrated camera and laser/radar technology, the pre-collision system warns drivers of imminent vehicles and when to apply the brakes. If a driver applies the brakes, the system may apply additional force or even brake for you if you don’t in time.

 

Pedestrian Detection

Using the same technology as the Pre-collision System, Pedestrian Detection aims to help drivers avoid colliding with pedestrians and other obstacles that could get in your driving path. This vehicle safety feature uses the same audio and visual warnings and applies the brake assistance like the Pre-collision System.

 

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Running into an upcoming vehicle while in cruise control can be both annoying and hazardous. Included with Toyota Safety Sense P is Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. This Orlando Toyota vehicle safety feature uses an onboard camera and radar to detect upcoming vehicles and their speeds. The vehicle safety system will warn the driver and then adjust your current speed to cruise at a preset range and then resume when the vehicle in front of you is gone.

 

Road Sign Assist

This new safety feature makes it easier for drivers to discern which road signs are coming their way. By using front-facing intelligent cameras, this vehicle safety feature displays images of important road signs on the MID screen for convenience and less distraction while driving.

 

Lane Tracing Assist

Working in conjunction with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Tracing Assist keeps your Orlando Toyota vehicle centered in your lane by detecting lane markers and correcting your position as you drive. This vehicle safety feature is only available with automatic transmission models.
