Toyota Safety Sense

Included as standard on every 2019 Toyota Corolla is Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). Its Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection can mitigate or potentially avoid a collision by using an in-vehicle camera in radar to detect pedestrians or vehicles in front of you.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control continuously monitors vehicle-to-vehicle distance as you drive while automatically adjusting your speed. Lane Departure with Steering Assist is able to detect lane departure or shifts on roads with clear markings. In the event you stray outside of the lines, this feature can provide subtle steering corrections in order to guide you safely back into your lane. These are just a handful of the advanced safety technologies found on the Toyota Corolla.
