What Is Toyota Safety Sense (TSS)?

Toyota Safety Sense includes a broad range of safety features for you and your family

If you are thinking of purchasing a new Toyota at Capital Toyota, you might have come across the term Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS) in your research. But what is this new feature?

Toyota Safety Sense includes a broad range of active safety features that are bundled together in one package on a wide variety of Toyota vehicles, ranging from the Corolla to the Prius to the Tundra.

What features are included in Toyota Safety Sense?

  • Pre-Collision System, which alerts you to a potential frontal collision—and brakes for you if necessary.
  • Lane Departure Alert, which alerts you if you have veered from your lane unintentionally.
  • Automatic High Beams, which helps you with nighttime driving by detecting oncoming vehicles (or vehicles that you are approaching) and toggles between high beams and low beams as necessary.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, which is an advanced form of cruise control that can adjust speed for you to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, which, like the Pre-Collision System, protects against frontal collisions, but also monitors for pedestrians.

The 2018 Toyota CH-R may have gotten its world debut at 2016 Geneva Auto Show, but fans recently got their first glance at the new, segment-defying vehicle on American soil at the Los Angeles Auto Show, where the vehicle was on full display.

This compact-sized vehicle has the makings of an SUV in a much smaller package, making it ideal for young drivers and small families. Its chief competitors are likely to be the Chevy Trax, Nissan Juke, and other similarly-sized models.

The new Toyota CH-R’s features include a 2-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque, and the new pint-sized sports utility vehicle is built on the same foundational structure of the much-loved Toyota Prius.

While we don’t yet know pricing for the vehicle, we do know that it will come with the many standard safety features that Toyota Safety Sense has to offer, such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
