How Does the Toyota Pre-Collision System Work?

January 15th, 2019 by

Toyota Safety Sense models

The Toyota Pre-Collision System works by using sensors to monitor the road as well as your surroundings. It gives off audio and visual warnings if there’s potential for a collision. Having this system in your Toyota makes navigating Pooler safer. Learn more about this technology with us at Savannah Toyota today by taking your favorite Toyota for a test drive!

How Does the Pre-Collision System Prevent Crashes

This system uses radar to detect possible crashes and slow the vehicle down to avoid or lessen the impact of an accident. Not only will this system alert the driver to brake, but once the brakes are in use, braking power will. It’s said that the more than 90 percent of rear-end crashes happen when there’s a difference in speed within 38 miles per hour, and that’s the area the Toyota Pre-Collision system focuses on. With this system in use, unavoidable crashes are more likely to be less severe.

Which Toyota Models Have This Feature?

While these features are found on most Toyota models standard, older model years may have some features as an available option. Either way, you’ll enjoy features not found in Honda Sensing. Be sure to check with the dealership about the model you’re looking at to make sure it has everything you want. This system is available or standard in the following Toyota models:
