You and Toyota Safety Sense can make the road a safer place.

TOYOTA SAFETY SENSE (TSS) standard at no additional cost.

Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS) is a bundle of active safety features on many new Toyota vehicles at no additional cost. These innovative features were designed to help protect you and your passengers from harm.

2019 Model Year TSS Features and Operations




2018 Model Year and Prior

The road can be unpredictable. That’s why we created available Toyota Safety Sense 9: to help protect drivers, passengers, and pedestrians (TSS-P only) from harm. Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) 9 is designed to help protect drivers, passengers, people in other vehicles on the road, and pedestrians (TSS-P and AHB). TSS is comprised of multi-feature active safety packages anchored by automated pre-collision wasrning and braking. TSS is designed to support the driver's awareness, decision-making and vehicle operation over a wide range of speeds under certain conditions. Packaged together in an integrated system, TSS features help address three key areas of accident protection: mitigating or preventing frontal collisions, helping to keep drivers within their lane, and enhancing road safety during nighttime driving. Always drive safely, obey traffic speed limits and laws, and focus on the road while driving.

TSS will be offered in the form of two packages: Toyota Safety Sense C (TSS-C) 9 for compact vehicles and Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) 9 for midsize and large vehicles.

Toyota Safety Sense C 9 features three proprietary active safety technologies, and combines a camera and laser for outstanding performance and reliability. The package can help mitigate or prevent collisions in a wide range of vehicle speeds under certain conditions.
• Pre-Collision System (PCS) 10 — Vehicle Detection
• Lane Departure Alert (LDA) 6
• Automatic High Beams (AHB) 8


Toyota Safety Sense P 9 combines an in-vehicle camera and front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar for enhanced performance and more functionality.
• Pre-Collision System 10 with Pedestrian Detection function 7 (PCS w/PD) —Vehicle Detection & Pedestrian Detection
• Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA) 11 (EPS-equipped vehicles)
• Automatic High Beams (AHB) 8
• Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) 12

See Owner’s Manual for additional details on system operations, limitations, and precautions.

Pre-Collision System (PCS)

This advanced safety system is designed to alert you, and may apply the brakes, if it detects a potential frontal collision with another vehicle.

With TSS-C, 9 Pre-Collision System (PCS) 10 Using an integrated camera and laser or radar to help detect other vehicles in front of you, the Pre-Collision System (PCS) 13 can prompt you to take action using audio and visual alerts if it determines a frontal collision is likely. If you notice the potential collision and apply the brakes, PCS may apply additional force using Brake Assist (BA). If you don’t brake in time, PCS may automatically apply the brakes for you, helping to minimize the likelihood of a frontal collision or reduce its severity.

Lane Departure Alert (LDA)

A camera on your windshield may help you avoid the consequences of unintended lane departure by alerting you when it senses that you’ve veered from your lane.

Under certain circumstances, Lane Departure Alert (LDA) 6 is designed to detect lane departure on roads with clear markings. LDA only activates when you’re traveling at a speed of 32 mph or faster. When you hear and see the alert, after carefully checking the road around you, you should safely direct your vehicle back to the center of your lane.

• LDA 6 is designed to function at speeds of approximately 32 mph or higher on relatively straight roadways.

In addition to the alert functions of LDA, TSS-P 9 equipped vehicles with Electronic Power Steering (EPS) will also feature a Steering Assist function (LDA w/SA). 11 When equipped and enabled, if the system determines that the vehicle is on a path to unintentionally depart from its lane, the system may provide small corrective steering inputs to the steering wheel for a short period of time to help keep the vehicle in its lane.

Automatic High Beams (AHB)

A camera on your windshield aids nighttime driving by using a camera to detect headlights and taillights of preceding vehicles, and toggling accordingly between high and low beams.

Automatic High Beams (AHB) 8 are a safety system designed to help you see more clearly at night—without blinding other drivers. Designed to activate at speeds above 25 mph, AHB rely on an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically toggle between high and low beams accordingly to provide the appropriate amount of light. By using high beams more frequently, the system may allow earlier detection of pedestrians and obstacles.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)

This high-tech cruise control uses a radar behind the Toyota badge plus a camera on the windshield designed to adjust your speed, helping you maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you.

Intended for highways and similar to “constant speed” cruise control, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) 12 lets you drive at a preset speed. DRCC uses vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, which adjusts your speed, to help you maintain a preset distance from vehicles ahead of you that are driving at a slower speed. DRCC uses a front-grille-mounted radar and an in-vehicle camera to detect vehicles and their distance. If a driver is traveling slower than you, or within your preset range, DRCC will automatically slow your vehicle down without deactivating cruise control. If DRCC determines you need to slow down more, an audio and visual alert notifies you and brakes are applied. When there’s no longer a vehicle driving slower than your set speed in front of you, DRCC will then accelerate and regular cruise control will resume.

• DRCC 12 is designed to function at speeds of approximately 25 to 110 mph. However, vehicle speed must be above approximately 28 mph to initiate DRCC, as that is the lowest set speed.
• Starting with certain 2018 Prius models, select Toyota vehicles may also feature the new Full-Speed Range DRCC, 12 which is designed to also work at speeds below 25 mph. Full-Speed Range DRCC 12 may enable low-speed following, speed matching, stopping and acceleration/deceleration to a preceding vehicle. Full-Speed Range DRCC 12 is designed to function at speeds between approximately 0 to 110 mph and is intended for highway use.

Pre-Collision System With Pedestrian Detection Function (PCS w/PD)

This integrated camera and radar system is designed to reduce the likelihood of colliding with a preceding car or pedestrian.

With Toyota Safety Sense P, 9 PCS 10 Using an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in front of you, the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) can help you mitigate or avoid a potential collision. If the system determines that a frontal collision is likely, it prompts you to take action using audio and visual alerts. If you notice the potential collision and apply the brakes, PCS w/PD may apply additional force using Brake Assist (BA). If you don’t brake in time, it may automatically apply the brakes to reduce your speed, helping to minimize the likelihood of a frontal collision or reduce its severity.
