3 Essential Toyota Safety Features


Here at our Toyota dealership serving Ellicott City, MD, we could spend all the time in the world talking about the comfortable, feature-filled cabins and cutting-edge tech features of Toyota vehicles, but one of the most important aspects of any vehicle is its list of safety features. In the past decade or so, Toyota safety features have become incredibly advanced, and we understand that it can tough to keep track of them all. Here are three of the most essential safety features that you’ll find on new Toyota cars.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: Found on vehicles such as the 2019 Toyota RAV4, this system uses an in-vehicle camera and a radar sensor or laser sensor to help detect a vehicle or pedestrian in front of you. If the system decides that a frontal collision is likely, it will prompt you to take action using audio and visual alerts.

Lane Departure Alert: Also found as part of the Toyota Safety Sensesuite of safety features, Lane Departure Alert is designed to detect lane departure on roads with visible lane markings. When you hear and see the alert, you should direct your vehicle back to the center of your road after checking for traffic around you.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control: This high-tech cruise control system is intended for use on highways where you’ll be driving at a consistent speed. It works by using vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which adjusts your speed, helping you maintain a preset distance from vehicles ahead of you that are driving at a slower speed.

If you want to test out these essential safety features for yourself, head on over to Heritage Toyota Catonsville and take a test drive.
