Heyward Allen Toyota Reviews Safety and Crash Avoidance on Toyotas Today

August 2nd, 2018 by

Perhaps you’ve heard the news. Almost every Toyota made today has crash avoidance features built right in. In all, seventeen Toyotas have the full Safety Sense P package, and four budget models have Safety Sense C at your Toyota dealer serving Athens GA.

Reducing Forward Collision Dangers
Safety Sense P models come with built-in adaptive cruise control. This utilizes three more standard features: the pedestrian watch, the forward collision warning, and the full-speed autobrake. From the Prius to the Sienna minivan, these features keep your family safer. Budget models, such as the Yaris, tend to have a city-speed autobrake to help reduce the chances of fender benders.

Reducing Side Swipe Dangers
Almost every model comes with built-in lane departure warnings. Safety Sense P models have a lane keeper that provides an assist to prevent the Toyota from drifting into another lane. Then there’s the blind spot system, available on many Toyotas, which alerts you to dangers and reduces the chances that the Toyota will change lanes at a dangerous time. A related rear cross-traffic alert reduces the danger of fender benders in the parking lot.

Reducing Crash Dangers
Most Toyotas have either whiplash-lessening headrests or exclusive whiplash-lessening seats. The Tundra and Tacoma lead their class with eight airbags apiece. Toyotas have a special architecture that’s designed to keep crashforce out of the cabin. Seven Toyotas earned Top Safety Pick, and at least thirteen have earned five stars from the NHTSA.

If you want a safe car, SUV or truck, start with the lineup at Heyward Allen Toyota dealer serving Athens GA.
