Toyota Safety Sense Mini Guide

Keeping you in safe hands.
For us at Toyota, safety is not an option. Toyota Safety Sense is a bundle of active safety features, standard across our core range. These innovative features are designed to help protect drivers and passengers. Addressing the 3 most common accidents: frontal, unintended lane departures and night-time. Driven by continuous improvement, we are launching a more advanced system.

Pre Collision Assistance


PCS consists of 3 active safety systems to assist in mitigating or avoiding rear end collision damage:

  1. Forward Collision Warning (FCW) notifies the driver of a collision danger with a visual alert 'BRAKE' in TFT Multi-info display + audible alarm. FCW can detect the following
    -Vehicles (0-180 km/h)
    -Pedestrians during daytime (10-80 km/h)
    - Pedestrians at night-time (10-80 km/h)
    - Cyclists during daytime (10-80 km/h)
  2. Pre Crash Brake Assist (PBA) boosts the braking force initiated by the driver if they respond to the Forward Collision Warning and depress the brake pedal.
  3. Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) applies when a collision is unavoidable and the driver has not taken action. AEB can provide deceleration up to -40 km/h for cyclists and pedestrians and up to -5okm/h for vehicles.

Toyota Safety Sense has reduced 90% of rear end collisions since its launch in 2015. 

Pre Collision Assistance


Automatic High Beam (AHB)

Automatically switches between high and low beam to enable optimal night time visibility. 


Speed Assistance

Road Sign Assist (RSA)

Notifies the driver of road signs along the way.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Keeps the vehicle cruising at the selected speed, and at a safe distance from the vehicle infront.

Intelligent ACC

Combining ACC with RSA, the system recognises new speed limits along the driving route and makes suggestions to change the cruising speed. 

Speed Assistance

Lane Keeping

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)

System alerts the driver if the vehicle deviates from its lane without a turn signal being engaged.

LDA with steering assist

Helps nudge the vehicle back into its lane by applying a small amoun of counter-steering force.

Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)

Keeps the vehicle centred in its lane at all times (driver's hands must be on the wheel). If lane markings are not visible, LTA detects the road edge and follows the path of the preceding vehicle.


Working together, ACC and LTA provide advanced hands-on driving assistance that customers will find especially useful in stop-and-go traffic as well as over long highway trips.
