What is Toyota Safety Sense P?

Toyota Safety Sense P is what sets Toyota vehicles apart from other car manufacturers. Toyota Safety Sense P, or TSS-P, is a suite of safety and security features that are standard on most current Toyota vehicles, and are standard on all Toyota 2018 vehicles. 

We at Steve Landers Toyota know that feeling safe is a top priority for our customers and that’s why we’re proud to sell vehicles with such great features and safety ratings. Below is a breakdown of each standard TSS-P feature. 

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) uses an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or pedestrian in front of you to avoid or mitigate a potential collision. If the system determines a front impact is likely, it will prompt you with visual and audio alerts. The system may automatically apply the brakes to reduce speed, help minimize the probability of a front crash or reduce its severity.

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist

Lane Departure Alert (LDA) is designed to know if you veer out of your lane. LDA is only activated when traveling at or above 32 MPH. When departing your lane, LDA will let you know with audio and visual cues so you can safety return to your marked lane.

When the Steering Assist functionality is activated, your Toyota may automatically make small corrective steering inputs to help keep you in a lane if it detects you’re unintentionally drifting.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is designed to keep you traveling at a constant speed, like normal cruise control. However, DRCC will adjust your speed using vehicle-to-vehicle distance control so you can maintain a preset distance away from the car ahead of you. If a car in front of you is traveling slower than you, DRCC will automatically slow down without deactivating cruise control. If you dip below a certain speed, DRCC will notify you via audio and visual alerts and the brakes will be applied. When there’s no longer a slower vehicle ahead of you, DRCC will accelerate back to your set speed.

Automatic High Beams

Automatic High Beams (AHB) will activate at speeds above 25 MPH and the systems relies on an in-vehicle camera to detect the taillights of preceding vehicles and headlights of oncoming vehicles. AHB will toggle between high and low beams to provide the appropriate amount of light, without you having to physically turn your high beams on and off.
