Standard Toyota Safety Features for cars, trucks and SUVs
Toyota vehicles are among the most respected, and popular, models in each of the classes they occupy. Certainly, models like the Toyota Camry, Corolla and Sienna are chosen for their performance and an extensive list of available features. However, as families turn to Toyota vehicles safety starts to become more important. The automaker is easily a clear leader in the industry in keeping drivers and passengers safe in the event a collision occurs, but also, Toyota vehicles have the ability to help owners avoid accidents altogether. What sets Toyota apart from its competitors is the fact these advanced safety systems come as standard equipment across the manufacturer's entire lineup.
Going forward from the 2017 model year, Toyota has made the Toyota Safety Sense system standard on most of its most sought-after vehicles. Government regulations state that all automakers have some kind of crash-avoidance system in place. Toyota took the initiative and is well ahead of the government requirements. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety announced that Toyota led the industry with more than 10 vehicles having earned its Top Safety Pick+ rating, including Lexus and former Scion vehicles. Toyota vehicles were able to get out ahead of its competition thanks to the company's commitment to making Toyota Safety Sense as universally available as possible.

The Toyota research and development arm collected crash and accident data from a variety of sources. They used this information to build Toyota Safety Sense and implement it in the most effective way possible. Identifying the underlying causes of crashes was among the company's top priority. Driver fatigue and distraction were at the top of the list of reasons for accidents. This led to Toyota making an automatic braking system standard equipment across its lineup of new vehicles starting with 2017 models.
Toyota and Honda vehicles are locked in a constant battle in almost every automotive class. Honda does have its own suite of safety systems, but their customers could end up having to pay as much as an extra $1,000 to have their vehicles match what Toyota make standard.
Like the rest of the automakers competing with Toyota, Nissan also doesn't make its safety systems universally available on its roster. Furthermore, Nissan only includes its crash avoidance gear on its upper trims. This can cost almost an extra $3,000.
Reseach conducted by Toyota has clearly shown that automatic braking is very important to avoiding crashes. Many of the most popular Chevy vehicles either only offer warnings or include automatic braking on more expensive trims, adding nearly $2,000 to Chevy's price.
