Toyota Making Safety Exciting

Getting a new car is an exciting time!

Lane Departure Alert with Steer Assist

Never swerve again! Lane Departure Alert [B12] is programmed to scan the road ahead and identify lane markings, where you’ll receive a crucial warning if you start to drift. If you veer from your lane while travelling at more than 50km/h, the LDA system will sound a buzzer and display a visual warning on your Multi-Information Display. Plus, Toyota’s with Steer Assist [M10] will offer a little extra steering support to keep you in your lane.

Lane Departure Alert is available in Yaris ZRCorolla Sedan ZRPrius V and selected Prado and LC200 models. Lane Departure Alert with Steer Assist is available in the Corolla Hatch, Prius, CamryC-HR, RAV4 and Kluger.

Pre-Collision Safety System

Eyes on the road! Using your vehicle’s built-in camera or radar, the Pre-Collision safety system [B8] has been designed to alert you when a frontal collision is likely. If a potential collision is detected, the system will sound a buzzer and the display the world “BRAKE” on your Toyota’s Multi-Information Display. 

Pre-Collision Safety System comes standard in Yaris ZR, Corolla Sedan ZR, Corolla Hatch, Prius, Camry, C-HR, RAV4, Kluger and selected Prado and LC200 models.

Active Cruise Control

We might not have fully autonomous cars yet, but Active Cruise Control [B9] is certainly a step in that direction. This feature uses your Toyota’s built-in camera and front grille-mounted radar to keep your vehicle at a pre-selected speed, automatically accelerating and decelerating with the traffic in front. When the sensors detect a slower moving vehicle within the range, the system will slow your vehicle to maintain a safe distance. 

Some Toyota models feature All-Speed ACC, allowing you to slow down to 0km/h. Other select models only feature High-Speed ACC, which is designed to operate at speeds above 50km/h. All-Speed Active Cruise Control is available in Corolla Hatch Auto, Prius, Camry and C-HR Auto models. High-Speed Active Cruise Control is available in Corolla Hatch Manual, Prius V, C-HR Manual, RAV4, Kluger and selected Prado and LC200 models.

Automatic High Beam

Continuously turning your high beams on and off can be a tedious task. But Automatic High Beam [B6] is an advanced piece of technology that reduces the need to manage your headlights manually. Using an in-built camera to detect the headlights of oncoming traffic when travelling over 50km/h, your Toyota will automatically dim your headlights from high to low beam.

Automatic High Beam is available in Yaris ZRCorolla Sedan ZRCorolla HatchPrius, Prius V, Camry, C-HR, RAV4, Kluger and selected Prado and LC200 models.

Plus, experience Lane Trace Assist and Road Sign Assist in the All-New Toyota Corolla

The newest car to the line-up, the Toyota Corolla introduces two new TSS features. Lane Trace Assist [M10] works with Active Cruise Control to observe road markings and provide additional steering support to help you maintain your position and apply extra steering support when necessary.

Plus, you’ll never need to ask “What’s the speed limit here” ever again! Road Sign Assist [B39] identifies standard Australian speed limit signs and will warn you with a visual alert when it’s time to adjust your speed!
