The Toyota Safety Sense™ package has earned the accolades of drivers from Plainfield to Wheaton, and it’s not difficult to see why. It boasts features including tracking movement in your surroundings, and many can even intervene to prevent collisions! Among these, the Toyota Pre-Collision System is most likely the best known. It works by using a front-facing camera and a laser in order to detect objects in your path and alert you when it’s time to brake. When necessary, it can even bring you to a complete stop automatically. Learn more on how the Toyota Pre-Collision system works in our guide.
While there’s a general sense of what the Toyota Pre-Collision System does, how does it actually function on your day-to-day drives around the Aurora area?
There’s no substitute for careful, attentive driving, but when you’re equipped with the Toyota Pre-Collision System, you’ll enjoy additional protection against the inevitable surprises that can occur on the road.
Several different versions exist of the Toyota Pre-Collision System. With Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS P) or Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0)–the most common versions of the package–the Toyota Pre-Collision System also includes Pedestrian Detection.
In Toyota vehicles with Pedestrian Detection, an additional grille-mounted system uses a millimeter-wave radar to check your surroundings for smaller objects, which the initial PCS might miss. By examining the size, shape, and motion of this smaller object, PD is able to identify vulnerable people and apply the brakes as necessary.
Today, drivers in the Naperville area can access the Toyota Pre-Collision System in an extraordinary variety of new Toyota vehicles. PCS is either standard or offered by trim level in each of the following models:
