Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) includes four advanced safety features that can help safe driving practices. These features are:
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) alerts the driver, under certain conditions, if the vehicle begins to leave its lane. Steering Assist (SA) may make corrective steering inputs. This feature is similar to Honda Sensing®‘s Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)®.
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) can help to mitigate potential collisions using radar and an in-vehicle camera to detect a vehicle or pedestrian in front of you. Brake Assist (BA) may apply additional braking force. If not applied, brakes may automatically activate. These features are similar to Honda Sensing®‘s Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™).
Automatic High Beams (AHB) rely on an in-vehicle camera to detect headlights and taillights in front of you and then automatically toggles between high or low beams to provide the appropriate amount of light. The 2019 Honda Civic LX also comes with Auto High-Beam Headlights as a driver assistance technology feature.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is designed to maintain a preset distance from a preceding vehicle and automatically slow your vehicle to maintain the preset distance. Once the slower vehicle is no longer in your lane, the system will resume your preset speed. This is similar to Honda Sensing®‘s Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow.
The 2019 Honda Civic LX now comes standard with the Honda Sensing® package.
In terms of passive safety features, one additional feature the 2019 Corolla LE has that the 2019 Civic LX lacks is the standard inclusion of driver knee airbags. Otherwise, these two vehicles have comparable passive safety features.
While the 2019 Civic LX safety ratings are not yet available, the 2019 Corolla LE and 2018 Civic LX both received 5-Star NHTSA Overall Safety Ratings, and the Corolla was a 2018 and 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick.
