Toyota Corolla Dashboard SafetyWhile the Toyota Corolla is built to help keep you safe in a collision, it’s better to not have an accident occur in the first place.

Luckily, this vehicle is armed with driver-assistive technologies that alert you to anything that may be amiss on the road. Some features can even step in to take action if you’re unable to do so in time.

This collection of technologies is called Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 and comes standard inside the vehicle. Some of the features included in this suite are:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Another useful feature is the available Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. If a car is in one of your blind spots as you attempt to switch lanes or back out of a parking spot, you’ll hear a chime and see an icon light up in one of the side mirrors. When the warnings go away, you’ll know it’s safe to make your move.
