Toyota Safety Sense
Toyota found that your chances of having an accident reduce with -50%* when you have Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) installed in your car. TSS is an umbrella name for a set of safety features, such as Pre-Collision System (with Pedestrian Detection), Lane Departure Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control amongst others. If on top of TSS, your car has the Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) feature, you will have -90%* less chance of having a rear-end collision.
ICS has been designed to support manoeuvring at lower speeds, for example in parking lots and garages, where pedal misapplication is more likely to occur. For the record, the data are gathered by the Japanese safety authorities**, but it is reasonable to believe that Toyota’s safety features will have a similar positive influence on European accident stats. We examined data from close to 250,000 vehicles, comparing those with and without Toyota safety equipment, over a 1-year period (Dec 2015-Dec 2016).
