2019 Toyota RAV4 vs. 2019 Nissan Rogue Head to Head: Safety
Every 2019 Toyota RAV4 comes with Toyota Safety Sense® 2.0 (TSS 2.0)24 standard. Let’s take a more in-depth look at the key active safety features:
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD)2322 is designed to help mitigate potential collisions by using an in-vehicle camera and radar to help detect a preceding vehicle and, under certain daytime conditions, a pedestrian. If the system determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a vehicle or a pedestrian is likely, an audio and visual alert is given. If the driver then applies the brakes, the system may provide additional braking force using Brake Assist (BA)28. If at this time the driver does not apply the brakes, the system may automatically apply the brakes, reducing the speed of the vehicle to help mitigate an impact or avoid the collision altogether. This feature is similar to the Rogue’s Automatic Emergency Braking With Pedestrian Detection.
Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA)20. This system will alert the driver under certain conditions if the vehicle begins to leave its lane. If Steering Assist (SA) has been enabled, the function may make slight corrective steering inputs to help the vehicle stay within its lane.
Automatic High Beams (AHB)18. This uses an in-vehicle camera to detect headlights or taillights ahead of your vehicle. The function then toggles between high or low beam lights to help ensure that you have an appropriate amount of light ahead of your vehicle. This is similar to the 2019 Rogue’s Intelligent Auto Headlights.
Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)39. This helps to maintain a preset distance between your car and the car ahead. DRCC can automatically slow your vehicle to maintain the preset distance and then detect when the vehicle ahead of you is no longer in your lane. It will then resume your vehicle’s speed. This feature is similar to the 2019 Rogue SL’s Intelligent Cruise Control feature, but it is not available on the 2019 Rogue S or SV.
Next, we’ll talk about performance.
