Safety Features Guide

Pre-Collision System (PCS)

With TSS-C,1 Pre-Collision System (PCS)2 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.9 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.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)

If Lane Departure Alert3 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. LDA3 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-P1 equipped vehicles with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) will also feature a Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA).9 When equipped and enabled, if the system determines that the vehicle is on a path to unintentionally depart from its lane, the system may provide small corrective steering inputs to the steering wheel for a short period of time to help keep the vehicle in its lane.

Automatic High Beams (AHB)

Automatic High Beams (AHB),5 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 provide 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 w/PD)

With Toyota Safety Sense™ P,1 PCS2 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 included with the TSS-P package 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 detected depending 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. If PCS determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a pedestrian in front of your vehicle is high under certain conditions, 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.9 If the driver does not brake in a set time and the system determines that the risk of collision with a pedestrian in front of your 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.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

TSS-P equipped vehicles include Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC).8 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 preceding vehicle when the preceding vehicle is traveling at a lower speed. Once a vehicle speed is set by the driver (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. If the vehicle ahead is detected traveling at a speed slower than your set speed or within your distance range setting, the system is designed to automatically decelerate your vehicle without having to cancel the cruise control. When a greater reduction in vehicle speed is necessary, the system may apply the brakes, may alert the driver by using an audio and visual alert, and may operate your vehicle brake lights. The system will then respond to changes in the speed of the vehicle ahead in order to help maintain the vehicle-to-vehicle distance set by the driver. When there is no longer a preceding vehicle driving slower than your vehicle's set speed, the system accelerates until the set speed is reached and returns to constant speed cruising. DRCC8 is designed to function at speeds of approximately 25 to 110 mph. However, vehicle speed must be above approximately 28 mph to initiate DRCC, as that is the lowest set speed. Starting with certain 2016 Prius models, select Toyota vehicles may also feature the new Full-Speed Range DRCC,8 which is designed to also work at speeds below 25 mph. Full-Speed Range DRCC8 may enable low-speed following, speed matching, stopping and acceleration/deceleration to a preceding vehicle. Full-Speed Range DRCC8 is designed to function at speeds between approximately 0 to 110 mph and is intended for highway use.

2The TSS Pre-Collision System is designed to help avoid or reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, driver input and road conditions. See Owner's Manual for details.
3Lane Departure Alert is designed to read lane markers under certain conditions, and provide visual and audible alerts when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner's Manual for details.
5Automatic High Beams operate at speeds above 25 mph. Factors such as a dirty windshield, weather, lighting and terrain limit effectiveness, requiring the driver to manually operate the high beams. See Owner's Manual for details.
6The Pedestrian Detection system is designed to detect a pedestrian ahead of the vehicle, determine if impact is imminent and help reduce impact speed. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, size and position of pedestrians, driver input and weather, light and road conditions. See Owner's Manual for details.
7Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist is designed to read lane markers under certain conditions. It provides a visual and audible alert and slight steering force when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner's Manual for details.
8Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices.
