Standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P)

What is Toyota Safety Sense P? Its an active safety package that combines the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control to assist you. TSS-P's comprehensive features create in-the-moment safety designed to support your awareness and decision-making on the road.

  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist - If an inadvertent lane departure is detected and there are visible lane markings, the Lane Departure Alert system will issue both an audible alert and visual warning on the MID screen. If the system determines that the driver is not taking corrective steering action, the Steering Assist function will initiate and provide gentle corrective steering when necessary to help keep the vehicle in the lane.
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control - Dynamic Radar Cruise Control takes cruising to the next level. Using forward-sensing radar technology and an intelligent camera, the system is designed to detect the speed and distance of the vehicle traveling directly ahead of you and adjust your speed accordingly. It helps you maintain a preset following distance, slowing when the preset distance shortens, then accelerating back to your original cruising speed when the road clears.
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection - Scans the road ahead for potential vehicle collisions, while Pedestrian Detection scans for pedestrians who may inadvertently come into the travel path of Corolla under certain conditions. If the system detects a potential collision, an audio/visual alert and braking assistance are automatically activated. Should the driver not respond, the system may automatically apply the brakes.
  • Automatic High Beams - The Automatic High Beam system allows for enhanced visibility, helping make nighttime driving safe. Using a camera to detect an oncoming vehicle's headlights, Automatic High Beams can switch between high and low beams for you.


For 2018 the Toyota Highlander will come in 5 models: LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE & Limited. All models share features like a backup camera, Toyota Star Safety System, Toyota Safety Sense P & more!
