Toyota Safety Sense P: What is it? | Steve Landers Toyota NWA

Toyota’s collection of safety features is unlike any other brand. Toyota Safety Sense P, or TSS-P, are standard on all 2018 vehicles manufactured by Toyota and our customers tell us all the time how secure they feel in knowing they’re driving a Toyota.

We at Steve Landers Toyota of Northwest Arkansas in Rogers, Arkansas understand that the one of the biggest, of not the highest, priority is safety. If you’re not already familiar with the function of TSS-P on your vehicle, or you’re looking to purchase a Toyota with TSS-P, read on! 

Automatic High Beams

Automatic High Beams (AHB) turn on when driving at speeds above 25 miles per hour or higher. This system uses an in-vehicle camera to discern the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles to toggle between low and high beams without having to touch the knob.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) keeps you driving at a constant speed, just like cruise control should. What makes this cruise control different is that DRCC adjusts your speed by determining vehicle-to-vehicle distance so you can keep to a preset distance away from the car in front of you. 

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist 

Lane Departure Alert (LDA) alerts you if you veer out of your lane and it’s only activated if you are driving above 32 miles per hour. If the Steering Assist functionality is activated when you unintentionally drift out of your lane, your Toyota may make a small corrective steering input to help keep you in your lane. 

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection uses the in-vehicle camera and radar to discern a pedestrian or vehicle in front of you to avoid or alleviate a potential collision. If a front impact is likely, the system will prompt you with visual and audio alerts, and it may automatically apply the brakes to reduce speed and lessen the probably of a frontal crash or reduce its severity.
