What is Toyota Safety Sense in the Toyota Sienna?
Toyota Safety Sense is a safety system that was designed with you in mind. The safety and security features available through Toyota Safety Sense include:
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
- Automatic High Beams
- Lane Tracing Assist
- Road Sign Assist
Here’s an overview of each of these safety features:
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
When traveling at speeds of 32 miles per hour and above, this feature will detect lane markings to alert you to take corrective action if you begin to swerve into another lane. If you do not take corrective action, the system will gently provide corrective steering to keep you safely in your lane.
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
As perhaps one of the most important safety features available on the Sienna, the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection is able to not only detect another vehicle, but any bicyclists and pedestrians that may also be at risk of a forward collision with the driver.
When a forward-facing collision is detected, the system will automatically provide you with an audio and visual warning. However, if you fail to act in time, the system will automatically engage the brakes.
Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
When this feature is activated, it will help you maintain a preset distance from the vehicle traveling in front of you. This makes taking a family road trip much more enjoyable!
Automatic High Beams
These high beams are designed to give you greater visibility even in the poorest lighting conditions. In addition to helping you see other cars traveling at speeds above 21 miles per hour, this system can detect oncoming headlights and automatically switch between low and high beams, as necessary.
Lane Tracing Assist
In conjunction with the vehicle’s Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, this system will use the lane markers to keep you centered in your lane, as well as provide active driving assistance when necessary.
Road Sign Assist
With the help of a smart camera, this system can detect various road signs like stop signs, Do Not Enter signs, and speed limit signs. As you approach a sign, an icon representing the sign will appear on your Multi-Information Display system.
Other Toyota Sienna Safety Features That You Can Depend On
