How Does Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?

Toyota Safety Sense lineup

Toyota Pre Collision uses sensors to monitor the road ahead for circumstances that suggest a potential collision. When the system senses a risk, it sends audio and visual warnings to the driver. You can think of Pre-Collision as an extra set of eyes – for quicker reactions to unexpected challenges you might face on the road in Lexington. How does Toyota Pre-Collision System Work in detail? Explore Pre-Collision System and Toyota Safety Sense™ technology in this guide from your Toyota South, your trusted Richmond Toyota dealership!

How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Prevent Crashes?

The Pre-Collision System uses radar technology to detect the conditions of a possible collision. During this time it does two things: slow the vehicle automatically to lessen the impact of an accident and alert the driver to brake or steer to avoid impact. Even if the driver isn’t able to react in time, the system will apply enough braking power on its own to avoid a collision or at least lessen the severity. The majority of rear-end crashes occur when the speed difference between vehicles is less than 38 mph. Pre-Collision focuses on that range, where even a small speed reduction can go a long way to reduce the severity of an unavoidable crash.

Which Toyota Models Have Toyota Pre-Collision?

How Does Toyota Pre-Collision System Work when it comes to older model years? While the vast majority of new Toyota vehicles come standard with the full suite of Pre-Collision features, some older model years may only include certain features as options. Whether you go with a 2020 model or a model from the past few years, you’ll enjoy a range of features beyond the capabilities of competitor systems like Honda Sensing®. If you have any questions about what’s included in Pre-Collision or Toyota Safety Sense™, ask your local Toyota dealership to be sure your model has all the safety features you’re looking for.
