 When buying a Toyota vehicle, consider these two packages:

  • Toyota Safety Sense™P- used for compact vehicles
  • Toyota Safety Sense™C- used for mid-sized sedans and large vehicles

Toyota Safety Sense™C (TSS-C) Package (Three Propietary Active Safety Technologies):

  • Pre-Collision System (PCS): this system uses an in vehicle camera and laser that helps you detect the vehicle in front of you. When the car senses you are coming up close upon a vehicle, the system will beep at you to put on the brakes.
  • Lane Departure Alert (LDA): Helps detect visible white and yellow lane markers to make sure the vehicle is position correctly while operationg on the road.
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB): Allows drivers to see more of the road while driving at nighttime without distracting other drivers with bright lights

Toyota Safety Sense™P (TSS-P) Package:

 When combined with the Toyota Safety Sense™C, the Toyota Sense™P can provide more safety and reliablity in your Toyota vehicle, keep your mind at ease for you, and your family.

  • Pre-Collision System with Predestrian Detection Function (PCS w/PD): determines the possiblity that a frontal or predestrian collision could occur, prompting the driver to take action of the situation and put the brakes on the vehicle, hence preventing an accident.
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist Function (LDA w/SA): when a vehicle is on the road and decides unintentionally to depart from its lane, this system will provide the corrective steering inputs to put the driver back in the correct lane.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC): while driving on the road with crusie control on, the car will use an in vehicle camera and a front girl millimeter wave radar to determine the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. If your vehicle happens to feel you are too close to the vehicle in front of you, it will adjust the cruise control accordingly within a set range without having to cancel cruise control.
