Toyota to introduce 'Safety Sense' technology package

Toyota is to bring together all its active safety technology as one package on future models.

Called Toyota Safety Sense, it will incorporate pre-collision system, which detects objects ahead and reduces the risk of hitting the car in front by automatically applying the brakes if the driver does not react to an audible and visual warning; lane departure alert, which warns the driver if the car drifts out of lane and, for certain models, provides steering input; and adaptive cruise control to keep the car a pre-set distance from vehicles in front.

On higher spec models, automatic high beam and road sign assist systems will also be part of the package.

The basic Safety Sense pack will be offered as standard on the heavily facelifted Avensis from September.

It will also be offered on the new Auris (July launch) as well as the Aygo and Yaris. In some cases this will be as standard, in others it will be at “a competitive price”, says Toyota.
