For families looking for a new car, one of the top “must have” features is safety. The Toyota SUV lineup comes with a wide range of standard safety features to help you feel more confident behind the wheel. This is a look at some of the technologies you can receive, depending on the Toyota SUV you choose.
The Pre-Collision System will help protect you from frontal collisions, allowing you to mitigate the impact of the collision or avoid it all together. This system also comes available with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, which will help detect those potential hazards.
Lane Departure Alert
After detecting the lane markings of your lane, Lane Departure Alert lets you know when you begin to drift out of your lane. If you have the available Steering Assist feature, this technology will also help re-centre you in your lane by providing small corrective steering adjustments.
Automatic High Beam
No one likes being accidentally blinded by the bright high beams of a vehicle facing you. Automatic High Beam makes sure that you don’t do that to the drivers around you. It switches between high and low beams for you, detecting oncoming and preceding vehicles’ lights.
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control allows you to set a preset following distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. It then will adjust your vehicle’s speed to help maintain this distance.
When you’re behind the wheel of the RAV4, you will have access to Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. This tool is designed to allow you low-speed following, speed matching, stopping, and accelerating and decelerating based on the vehicle in front of you.
Lane Trace Assist
Because the RAV4 crossover comes equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 package, it comes with Lane Trace Assist. This feature works to keep your vehicle centred in the middle of your lane, helping you avoid any unwanted lane departures. It will actually assist you in your steering, recognizing when you get too close to the lane marker and guiding back towards the lane’s centre.
