Advanced Safety Features on 2018 Toyota Models


Here at Heritage Toyota Catonsville, it’s hard for our Toyota dealers to believe that as recent as a decade, the most advanced safety feature found in most vehicles was the airbag. Led by innovative automakers like Toyota, safety features have come a long way and are now centered around advanced technology. We know that learning to use these new features can be difficult for drivers who aren’t used to tech-focused safety features, so here’s a quick rundown of some of the advanced safety features that you’ll find in cars like the 2018 Toyota Corolla.

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist: This is a feature that is designed to detect lane departure on roads with clear markings. When you’re travelling over 32 miles per hour and begin to drift outside your lane, the system will alert you. If you fail to intervene, the Steering Assist functionality makes small corrective steering inputs to help keep your vehicle in place.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: This system uses an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or pedestrian in front of your vehicle. If the system determines that a frontal collision is likely, it will use audio and visual alerts to prompt you to take action. It can even additional force on its own by using Brake Assist.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: When your vehicle is set to cruise control on the highway, the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control to adjust your speed. Without needing to manually apply the brakes, this feature helps you maintain a preset safe distance from vehicles ahead of you that are driving at a slower speed.
