Crash protection starts with crash prevention. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were almost 6.3 million reported crashes in 2015 - many of which were avoidable.

Toyota Safety Sense (TSS2) is designed to help protect drivers, passengers and pedestrians from harm. TSS2 is comprised of advanced active safety packages anchored by automated pre-collision warning and braking. TSS2 represents the latest milestone in our long history of creating advancements and innovations in safety that have helped prevent crashes and protect people.
Pre-Collision System (PCS)
With TSS-C, 7 Pre-Collision System (PCS) 8 uses an in-vehicle camera and laser to help detect the vehicle in front of your vehicle. When PCS determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with that vehicle is high, it prompts the driver to take evasive action and brake, by using an audio and visual alert. If the driver notices the hazard and brakes, the system may provide additional braking force using Brake Assist. If the driver does not brake in a set time and the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a preceding vehicle is extremely high, the system may automatically apply the brakes, reducing speed in order to help the driver reduce the impact and in certain cases avoid the collision.
Automatic High Beams (AHB)
Automatic High Beams (AHB), found in both TSS-C and TSS-P, is a safety system designed to help drivers see more of what's ahead at nighttime without dazzling other drivers. When enabled, AHB uses an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically switches between high and low beams as appropriate to prvide the most light possible and enhance forward visibility. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles. AHB is designed to function at speeds of approximately 25 mph or higher. Minimum speed may vary by vehicle.

Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection Function (PCS s/PD)
With Toyota Safety Sense, PCS uses an in-vehicle camera and front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar to help detect the vehicle in front of your vehicle. In certain conditions the PCS system may also help to detect a pedestrian in front of your vehicle. The in-vehicle camera of PCS detects a potential pedestrian based on size, profile and motion of the detected pedestrian. However, a pedestrian may not be detecteddepending on the conditions, including the surrounding brightness and the motion, posture, size and angle of the potential detected pedestrian, preventing the system from operating or engaging.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
TSS-P equipped vehicles include Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). On highways, DRCC functions similarly to conventional "constant speed" cruise control in that it helps vehicles travel at a consistent speed set by the driver, but this system adds a vehicle-to vehicle distance control mode which assists the driver by adjusting vehicle speed (within a set range) to help maintain a preset distance to a proceeding vehicle when the preceding vehicle is traveling at a lower speed. DRCC is available when the vehicle is traveling approximately 28 mph or higher. DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar and an in-vehicle camera to detect a preceding vehicle and help determine its distance.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)
If Lane Departure Alert determines that the vehicle is starting to unintentionally deviate from its lane, the system alerts the driver with an audio and visual alert. When the alerts occur, the driver must check the surrounding road situation and carefully operate the steering wheel to move the vehicle back to the center part of their lane. LDA is designed to function at speeds of approximately 32 mph or higher on relatively straight roadways. In addition to the alert functions of LDA, TSS-) equipped vehicles with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) will also feature a Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA).
