Apart from the standard safety features that are already found in almost every vehicle these days, Toyota ups the ante with Pre-collision System (PCS), Automatic High Beams (AHB), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) with Steering Assist.

If those are too many abbreviations for you to remember and think they are unnecessary, you can thank Toyota later when you find yourself not crashing against that wayward Truck ahead of you.

PCS utilizes the multiple sensors and cameras to alert the driver of an imminent or possible collision and to a point, actively applies assisted pressure to braking, controlling the Anti-Lock Braking and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution modules to optimize stopping power.

If necessary it automatically activates the brakes to further prevent collision even without driver action.

For darker roads, AHB makes it alot easier to illuminate your way without blinding oncoming traffic. No need to actively toggle on switches, therefore, providing you optimum lighting without distracting the driver.

The Toyota Alphard 2020 utilizes its technologically advanced LED headlamps and fog lights without being obnoxious.

You can also get a small taste of the future of autonomous driving with the combination of DRCC, with ACC and LTA with Steering Assist.

While Cruise Control has been around for a few decades now, DRCC uses advanced radars to pinpoint the 2020 Toyota Alphard’s coordinates in relation to the cars around it, particularly in front.


Once it realizes that you are getting too close to the vehicle ahead of you the Cruise Control system adjusts itself automatically. Those sensors in tandem with the cameras to keep it within its lane with LTA and actively steers you back to the middle of the lane for further safety.

To clarify this is not a full-on Autonomous Driving Experience, but with the way Toyota Safety Sense seamlessly works, the future of the feature does not seem that far off.
