Toyota Tacoma's standard Toyota Safety Sense® P (TSS-P) is a major advantage over the safety features available on every 2019 Canyon.
Every 2019 Toyota Tacoma comes with Toyota Safety Sense® P (TSS-P) standard. Some of the key active safety features included in Toyota Safety Sense® P (TSS-P) are described below:
Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD) is designed to help to 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). 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 the impact or avoid the collision altogether.
Lane Departure Alert with Sway Warning System (SWS) is designed to use an in-vehicle camera to detect lane departure when traveling on relatively straight roads with clear lane markings. The system's current operating status is indicated through colored lane marking illustrations on the vehicle's Multi-Information Display (MID). If LDA determines that the vehicle is starting to unintentionally deviate from its visibly marked lane, the system alerts the driver with an audio and visual alert.
Automatic High Beams (AHB). This feature 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.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). DRCC 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.
In comparison, the 2019 Canyon SLT offers just two similar features: Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert, but these come at an additional cost of $400 with the Driver Alert package.
In addition to the safety features that come standard with Toyota Safety Sense® P (TSS-P), the Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Limited trims also come standard with a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Canyon does not have an equivalent safety feature. Also missing on the Canyon are standard knee airbags, which are a standard feature of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma.
