Toyota Safety Technology


Promoting a safer mobile world is – and always will be – one of Toyota’s top priorities. Through the development of innovative technologies, Toyota remains committed to ongoing safety improvements – a commitment that is recognized with accolades like multiple IIHS Awards.

Integrated Technologies

In pursuit of a safe driving environment, Toyota takes an integrated approach that brings together distinct areas of driving.


Take the guesswork out of backing in and backing up, thanks to a number of technologies that increase your field of vision. We’ve developed Backup Cameras with Guidelines for backing into parking spaces, a Rear Cross Traffic Alert system that warns of approaching vehicles when backing up, and Intelligent Parking Assist that can park a vehicle virtually unassisted.

Active Safety

Active safety technologies are designed to help when the unexpected happens. Blind Spot Monitor alerts you when vehicles are in your blind spot. Lane Departure Alert helps keep you in your lane with audio and visual alerts. Traction Control limits wheel spin on slippery surfaces when you are travelling in a straight line. Vehicle Stability Control helps maintain control on slippery surfaces. Anti-lock Brakes prevent wheel lock during a sudden stop. Electronic Brakeforce Distribution enhances stability while braking, while Brake Assist detects sudden braking and adds full pressure to prevent a collision.

Pre-Crash Safety

Sometimes accidents are unavoidable, but we've developed technologies that can predict the likelihood of a collision, take steps to reduce damage and injury, and in some situations, help avoid an accident altogether. Between certain speeds, Pre-Collision System warns when an obstacle is detected by radar, then automatically apply brakes to reduce the severity of impact and tighten seatbelts to help protect occupants.

Passive Safety

From airbags to seatbelts to impact-absorbing body structures that channel impact energy away from the cabin, Toyota vehicles are loaded with passive safety measures. We’ve even specially designed our headrests and driver and front passenger seats to help reduce impact effects such as whiplash.

Toyota Safety Sense™

Toyota believes that no matter the destination, everyone deserves to arrive safely. That’s why Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) is standard on virtually all Toyota models. TSS is an advanced suite of active safety designed to support driver awareness, decision making, and vehicle operation over a wide range of speeds. 

Crash protection starts with crash prevention. Packaged together in an integrated system, TSS helps address three key areas of accident protection: preventing or mitigating frontal collisions, keeping drivers within their lane, and enhancing road safety during night-time driving.
