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.
