Take the guesswork out of backing in and backing up, thanks to a number of technologies that increase your field of vision. We've developed Backup Cameras with Guidelines for backing into parking spaces, a system that warns of approaching vehicles when backing up, and Intelligent that can park a vehicle virtually unassisted.
Active safety technologies are designed to help when the unexpected happens. alerts you when vehicles are in your blind spot. Lane Departure Alert helps keep you in your lane with audio and visual alerts to notify you when you are drifting out of your lane. Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist provides small steering inputs to help keep you in your lane. limits wheel spin on slippery surfaces when you are travelling in a straight line. helps maintain control on slippery surfaces by reducing engine power and applying necessary brake force automatically. Anti-lock Brakes ? prevent wheel lock during a sudden stop by applying "pulsing" brake pressure. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution enhances stability while braking, while Brake Assist detects sudden braking and adds full pressure to prevent a collision. Some technologies, like Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management, are so advanced that they can anticipate your intentions and then automatically activate a variety of safety systems to ensure the highest possible level of vehicle control and stability.
Sometimes accidents are unavoidable, but we've developed technologies that can predict the likelihood of a collision, take steps to reduce damage and injury, and in some situations, help avoid an accident altogether. Between certain speeds, warns when an obstacle is detected by radar, then automatically apply brakes to reduce the severity of impact and tighten seatbelts to help protect occupants.
From airbags to seatbelts to impact-absorbing body structures that channel impact energy away from the cabin, Toyota vehicles are loaded with passive safety measures. We've even specially designed our headrests and driver and front passenger seats to help reduce impact effects such as whiplash.
