Toyota Pre-Collision System


The Toyota Safety Sense™ package has received high praise from Provo drivers and industry experts alike. This innovative technology includes a feature that tracks movement in your surroundings and intervenes to prevent collisions. Included in this safety suite is the Toyota Pre-Collision System, which works by using its front-facing camera and a high-tech laser to detect any objects in your path and alerts you when it’s time to break. If necessary, it brings your Toyota vehicle to a complete stop.

How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?

The Toyota Pre-Collision System works to enhance your day-to-day drives around the Lehi and Draper areas.

  • Each Toyota model with the Pre-Collision System includes the front-facing camera and invisible laser.
  • The system uses these components to measure the distance between your vehicle and the obstacle that’s right in front of you.
  • It takes your speed into account to determine the likelihood of a collision.
  • If a collision is likely, it sends out an audiovisual alert to notify you of the danger. You should manually apply the brake as soon as possible.
  • If the alerts are not enough to get you to slow or stop your vehicle, it may apply the brakes automatically or deploy them at full force with brake assist.

With that said, it’s important to practice safe driving. The Toyota Pre-Collision System gives you added protection when inevitable surprises occur on the Draper roads.

Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

There are different versions of the Toyota Pre-Collision System. With Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS P) or Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0), the Toyota Pre-Collision System also includes Pedestrian Detection.

In vehicles with Pedestrian Detection, an additional grille-mounted system uses millimeter-wave radar to check your surroundings for smaller objects, which the PCS might miss! By examining the size, shape, and motion of this smaller object, PD is able to identify vulnerable people and apply the brakes as necessary.

Which Toyota Models Offer the Pre-Collision System?

These days you have full access to the Toyota Pre-Collision System in a variety of new Toyota vehicles. PCS is either standard or available in each of the following models:

  • Crossovers, SUVs, and Minivans: C-HR, Land Cruiser, Highlander, Highlander Hybrid, RAV4, RAV4 Hybrid, Tundra, Sequoia, Tacoma, Sienna
  • Cars and Hatchbacks: Avalon, Avalon Hybrid, Camry, Camry Hybrid, Corolla, Corolla Hybrid, Prius, Prius Prime, Prius c, Yaris Hatchback

What Features are Included with Toyota Safety Sense™?

Features vary based on which model and model year you opt for, however, you can get one of the three available Toyota Safety Sense™ packages with your Toyota purchase. Below is a look at what you will see with the new and most comprehensive version, Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0):

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)
  • Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) or Full-Speed Range DRCC
  • Road Sign Assist (RSA)

The Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS P) is the most common and popular package. This group has the features above, minus LTA and RSA. Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS C) only includes PCS, LDA, and AHB, but there are only a few Toyota models still offering this package.
