Toyota Safety Sense (TSS)
Designed to Keep You, Your Passengers, and All Who Share the Roads Safer
Standard on most models, Toyota Safety SenseTM (TSS) is an advanced suite of active safety features that are designed to support your awareness and decision-making across a range of speeds and driving conditions.
Peace of Mind Comes in Many Packages
TSS features can vary depending on the model you choose.
TSS-P features advanced technologies including Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beam.
TSS 2.0 builds on TSS-P, and consists of up to six active safety and driver assistance systems.
TSS 2.5+ adds new capabilities to the Pre-Collision and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control Systems, and enhances Lane Tracing Assist.
TSS 3.0 brings even more advances, including Motorcycle Detection, Lane Change Assist, and Front Cross Traffic Alert.
TSS-P – PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION3
Pre-Collision System (PCS) provides collision avoidance or collision mitigation support in certain situations where a frontal collision is likely to occur, and in some cases, will automatically apply the brakes to help the driver. PCS can also help detect pedestrians in certain situations.
TSS 2.0 – PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM WITH DAYTIME/LOW-LIGHT VEHICLE AND PEDESTRIAN DETECTION, PLUS DAYTIME BICYCLE DETECTION3
PCS is also designed to help detect bicyclists in daytime situations, as well as vehicles and pedestrians in both daytime and low-light situations.
TSS 2.5+ & TSS 3.0 – PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM WITH PEDESTRIAN (DAYTIME & LOW-LIGHT) & DAYTIME BICYCLE DETECTION3, INTERSECTION SUPPORT & EMERGENCY STEERING ASSIST9
PCS in TSS 2.5+ and 3.0 may warn you of oncoming pedestrians or vehicles when making a left turn at an intersection, as well as an on-coming pedestrian when performing a right-hand turn and provide emergency braking in certain conditions. They also feature Emergency Steering Assist, which is designed to stabilize the driver’s emergency steering maneuver and keep the vehicle in its lane when avoiding pedestrian, cyclist or another vehicle under specific conditions. PCS is further enhanced with TSS 3.0 and adds intersection collision avoidance for crossing vehicles, low speed collision avoidance to prevent rear ending another vehicle. In certain situations it can also help detect motorcycles.
Lane Departure Alert
TSS-P – LANE DEPARTURE ALERT WITH STEERING ASSIST5
Lane Departure Alert (LDA) alerts you if you start to drift out of your lane when visible white/yellow lane markings are detected. Some models with TSS-P may include the Steering Assist function and may also provide small corrective steering inputs.
TSS 2.0 – LANE DEPARTURE ALERT WITH STEERING ASSIST AND ROAD EDGE DETECTION5
LDA for TSS 2.0 alerts you if you start to drift out of your lane when visible white/yellow lane markings, as well as road edges or curbs at certain speeds, are detected. Steering Assist may also provide gentle corrective steering inputs if action is not taken.
TSS 2.5+ & TSS 3.0 – LANE DEPARTURE ALERT WITH STEERING ASSIST AND ROAD EDGE DETECTION5
Lane Departure Alert for TSS 2.5+ and 3.0 alerts you if you start to drift out of your lane when visible white/yellow lane markings, as well as road edges or curbs at certain speeds, are detected. Steering Assist may also provide gentle corrective steering inputs if action is not taken. TSS 3.0 also adds Lane Change Assist.
DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL
TSS-P – DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL7
Intended for highway use, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), can automatically adjust your vehicle speed to maintain a preset following distance between you and the vehicle directly in front of you. The system is designed to work between speeds of approximately 40 km/h to 180 km/h.
TSS 2.0 – FULL SPEED RANGE DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL7
Full Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control can also perform vehicle-to-vehicle distance control down to 0 km/h, and resume from a complete stop.
TSS 2.5+ & TSS 3.0 – FULL SPEED DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL WITH CURVE SPEED MANAGEMENT7
DRCC in TSS 2.5+ and 3.0 is enhanced with a Curve Speed Management function that will determine if the vehicle speed needs to be reduced when approaching a curve on the road and decelerate automatically when driving through a curve if required. TSS 3.0 also adds Front Cross Traffic Alert.
LANE TRACING ASSIST
TSS 2.0 – LANE TRACING ASSIST8
In models with Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), LTA works with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control to keep the vehicle centered in its visibly marked lane and preemptively avoid unintended lane departures.
TSS 2.5+ & TSS 3.0 – LANE TRACING ASSIST WITH ENHANCED LINE & ROAD RECOGNITION8
On vehicles equipped with TSS 2.5+ and 3.0 the lane recognition performance may now recognize the line of travel in situations where road markings may have been temporarily interrupted.
AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM
TSS-P, TSS 2.0, TSS 2.5+, TSS 3.0, – AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM6
All TSS packages feature Automatic High Beam (AHB) headlamps. The system reacts to oncoming headlamps or preceding taillamps, automatically switching from high-beam to low-beam and then back again once the coast is clear.
QUALITY MEANS SAFETY
Quality, Durability and Reliability are the Hallmarks of a Toyota Vehicle
Along with years of driving enjoyment, the quality we build in at every step of production also serves to enhance your safety when behind the wheel.
In addition to thousands of virtual simulations, Toyota conducts more that 1,600 vehicle crash tests each year – all to learn more about keeping you, your passengers, other drivers, and all of those who share the roads safer. Through a series of comprehensive crash tests, with sensors feeding data at critical moments, we’re able to analyze the effects of impact, and design critical improvements.
Take our airbags, for example. Not only do electronic connections for the airbag system have gold-plated terminals, making them immune to corrosion, every single airbag that comes out of a Toyota plant is inspected three separate times on the production line before being connected.
TOYOTA NEW GLOBAL ARCHITECTURE
In 2015, we introduced our Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), a complete re-engineering of our powertrains and platforms, designed to make Toyota vehicles better in every way — including stronger, safer and able to readily integrate ever-more advanced safety systems.
