Toyota Safety Packages in Canada
Every year, car companies come out with new and exciting features and vehicles. Last month we were excited to reveal the Toyota Mirai and this month we have more exciting news. Toyota is launching a brand new active safety package for 2015. These features are designed to help prevent and reduce collisions. These safety features will be offered through two different “Toyota Safety Sense” packages to be fully revealed in 2015. The two packages will be called “C” for compact cars and “P” for mid-sized and high-end cars. Lets take a closer look at these two new Toyota safety packages in Canada.
Package “C” contains three active safety technologies, and a camera and laser radar to create outstanding performance and reliability. The first of these features is the pre-collision system (PCS) this system uses a camera and laser radar to detect objects ahead of the vehicle. It sends visual and audible alerts to the driver. If the driver fails to brake, the system will automatically apply the brakes. The second feature is Lane Departure Assistance (LDA) which alerts the driver with audio and visual alerts when the vehicle starts to cross over lanes. The third feature is Automatic High Beam (AHB) which helps with nighttime visibility. It uses a camera to detect oncoming headlights and taillights to automatically switch between high beams and low beams.
The Toyota Safety Sense “P” package adds to the three safety technologies offered in package “C”. It adds two more features useful for larger sized vehicles. The first of these is pre-collision system with pedestrian detection function. This system uses a radar and a camera to detect pedestrians as well as vehicles. The system uses audio and visual alerts as well as brake assist to avoid collisions. The other additional system is Radar Cruise Control. It uses a radar to detect vehicles ahead of you and determines their speed. It will then adjust your speed to make sure a safe distance remains between you and other vehicles.
All of these safety innovations were designed to help drivers stay safe on the road. Here at Toyota on the Trail we are proud to be part of a company that puts so much time and work into creating safety features that can improve everyday driving situations.
