Toyota vehicles are known for being dependable, fuel efficient, and stylish. Above all, though, they’re designed to keep you safe. With smart technology, capable traction, and an advanced airbag system, they can help you avoid accidents and protect you and your passengers.
To show drivers in Nashville, Gallatin, and Madison how they keep you safe, the team at Toyota of Gallatin explores some of the Toyota safety features. Be sure to contact our team today with any questions.
Interior Safety Features
From their frame design to having lots of airbags, Toyota vehicles are built to protect you and your most important cargo. Many models feature front and rear crumple zones. These are designed to absorb energy during a collision, then direct that force away from the interior.
Meanwhile, the cabin gives you a couple ways to strap in tightly. Front seatbelt pretensioners are common in vehicles like the Toyota RAV4 and the Toyota Sienna, while Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) come standard in the back seats.
Every model protects you with an advanced airbag system. You can always count on a pair of front airbags and seat-mounted front side airbags. Some Toyota vehicles feature driver and front- passenger knee airbags as well as side curtain airbags that cover both rows of seats. Cars like the Toyota Camry include up to 10 airbags.
Star Safety System™
Whether you drive a compact car like the Toyota Corolla or a pickup like the Toyota Tundra, being able to stop and grip the road is essential to a safe drive. That’s where the Star Safety System™ comes in. It comes standard on every Toyota vehicle. It comes equipped with six features that will keep you in control. In addition to Smart Stop Technology, it includes:
- Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control
- Traction Control
- Anti-Lock Brake System
- Electronic Brake-force Distribution
- Brake Assist
There are also lots of smart safety features that can help prevent accidents before they occur. For example, an integrated backup camera lets you see what’s behind your vehicle whenever you put it in reverse. There’s also Toyota Safety Sense™. This system comes standard on many Toyota models. It gives you more awareness with features such as:
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection – Warns you of an imminent collision and can apply the brakes for you
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control – Monitors the vehicle in front of you and adjusts your speed if traffic slows down
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist – Gives you an audible warning if you start to drift out of your lane
- Automatic High Beams – Switches your high beams on or off depending on whether or not another vehicle’s in front of you
You can also add features like a Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Plus, an available Bird’s Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan offers an overhead view, so you can see what’s around your vehicle.
