As the world progresses, so does the automobile sector, with new inventions, newer designs, advances in technology and safety features, but they are mostly incorporated only in the top-end variants. Keeping ones personal safety at the center, Toyota plans to include Advance Safety Systems in its mainstream lineup of 2015 models.
The Advanced Safety Systems that will be seen in all the 2015 models, will be borrowed from the Toyota Lexus, which includes some of the most advanced safety features in the industry such as: Advanced Pre-Crash Saefty (A-PCS), Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, Driver Monitor- to assist the driver while driving, Rear-Pre Crash Saefty, Lexus Night View- displays infrared images of the road, Adaptive High Beam System- shields illumination for on-coming drivers, 8- air bags and seatbelt pre-tensioners. This Advanced Safety System does not only warn about potential hazards, but also is able to aid with evasive action as well.
Talking about the issue, Bill Fay, Toyota’s Division General Manager stated that, active safety technology should begin appearing on Toyota vehicles in the 2015 model year and be available on all Toyota models by 2017.
One is still not sure about how many of the safety features will become standard features, but one can speculate that Toyota may offer these features as a safety upgrade package. We hope that Toyota is successful in carrying out this plan and we shall get more news once Toyota begins its promotion for the company’s 2015 lineup.
