Come with our Toyota Palo Alto team today to check out the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 safety features and operation!
Your Toyota model has “eyes” that can detect if you’re about to collide with the vehicle in front of you; in this instance, it can apply the brakes for you to help you avoid danger!
Lane Departure Alert
There’s a camera on your Toyota model’s windshield that can help you stay centered in your lane; it’s able to do this by alerting you or taking control of the wheel if needed.
Automatic High Beams
The same windshield camera can detect variations in the headlights or taillights of vehicles around you at night. With this information, it can toggle between high and low beams, helping your visibility.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
If you need to stay at a set speed, your Toyota can use sensors to keep you moving at the same pace as the vehicles around you, and even apply the brakes if necessary.
Pre-Collision System w/ Pedestrian Detection
When you’re coming to a stop at a crosswalk, your Toyota vehicle will be able to see pedestrians walking by and keep you (and them) safe from harm.
