That’s why we continue to invest in ever more advanced safety systems like Toyota Safety Sense, standard on most models.

You might say that your safety is our peace of mind. 

Peace of Mind Comes in Many Packages

TSS features can vary depending on the model you choose

Toyota Safety Sense TM

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.

Standard on all Toyota vehicles, Star Safety SystemTM features six accident avoidance technologies to enhance your vehicle's stability, braking, and traction.

From driveways to highways, parking lots to passing lanes, Toyota safety technologies are at work

Explore some of our other advanced systems that help keep you safer from the moment you get behind the wheel.

Traction Control
The Traction Control feature limits wheel spin on slippery surfaces, when driving in a straight line.

Blind Spot Monitor
Help improve awareness on the road with the Blind Spot Monitor function.

Parking Assist
The Parking Assist system uses sensors mounted around the vehicle to detect obstacles close by and alerts the driver with an audible signal.

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
The Rear Cross Traffic Alert assists in alerting you of rear cross traffic and helps in avoiding collisions when backing up.

Vehicle Stability Control
Use the Vehicle Stability Control function to help maintain control when turning on slippery surfaces.

Backup Camera
The available backup camera supplements your vision and assists with reversing and parking maneuvers.

Hill Start Assist Control
Some Toyota vehicles include a Hill Start Assist Control function, which helps prevent the vehicle from rolling backwards when starting off on an incline.

Downhill Assist Control
Downhill Assist Control helps the vehicle maintain stability on steep downgrades at low speeds, by controlling the speed and preventing the brakes from locking.

Our Ultimate Goal

A world without accidents

Safety Awards are one measure of our journey towards an accident-free world. Awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) are the milestones by which we measure our success. 

Your Safety Is Our Peace of Mind


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


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.


TSS-C features Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beam.


TSS-P enhances TSS-C, and adds Dynamic Radar Cruise Control to its suite of systems.

TSS 2.0

Builds on TSS-P, and consists of up to six active safety and driver assistance systems.

TSS 2.5+

TSS 2.5+ adds new capabilities to pre-collision & dynamic radar cruise control systems; and enhances lane tracing assist.

Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)

ABS helps prevent brakes from locking up by pulsing brake pressure to each wheel to help you stay in control in emergency braking situations.

Brake Assist (BA)

Brake Assist is designed to detect sudden or "panic" braking and then add the full pressure needed to help prevent a collision.

Smart Stop Technology

This advanced technology automatically cuts engine power and allows the brakes to take precedence over the accelerator when both pedals are pressed at the same time.

Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)

VSC helps prevent wheelslip and loss of traction by reducing engine power and applying brake force to the wheels that need it.

Traction Control (TRAC)

Traction Control helps maintain traction on wet, icy, loose or uneven surfaces by applying brake force to the spinning wheel(s).

Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD)

Toyota's ABS technology has Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) to help keep the vehicle more stable and balanced when braking.
