One of the hallmarks of the current Toyota lineup is the inclusion of the Toyota Safety Sense suite of active safety features as standard on most models. This has been a big selling point for Toyota as their reasonable price points make the active safety available to a wide range of drivers who would otherwise have to pay more for the same features in other brands. Recently, Toyota announced that the second generation of the Toyota Safety Sense bundle has been completed and will be available on select Toyota models beginning in the middle of the 2018 model year.

“At Toyota, we are committed to making high-level driver assistance systems more widely available and even more affordable across a broader range of our vehicles. The second generation of Toyota Safety Sense™ takes our industry-leading suite of safety technologies to the next level, delivering new advanced and intuitive protections that are another step toward a future without traffic injuries or fatalities,” said Chris Nielsen, Toyota executive.
The Toyota Safety Sense bundle and the new second generation model was produced to help assist drivers in three main areas: lane awareness, night driving, and avoiding frontal collisions.
