The 2017 Toyota Corolla — The Car Where Safety Is Standard

Many modern cars offer available driver assistance technology that helps keep you safer on the road. This includes the 2017 Toyota Corolla. But Toyota takes safety one step further by making these assistive technologies standard equipment with Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P).

That’s right. It doesn’t matter which trim you choose — you’ll always have access to incredible safety features behind the wheel of the Corolla.

And did we mention that the Corolla is a 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus? Or that it earned a score of 9.3 out of 10 from U.S. News?

If you’re not impressed yet, just wait until we dive into the details of Toyota Safety Sense™ P.

4 Ways Toyota Safety Sense™ P Helps Keep You Safe.

Toyota Safety Sense™ P is a suite of driver assistance technology designed to make your drive more convenient and more secure. There are four features that come standard in your Corolla thanks to Toyota Safety Sense™ P.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
This dynamic system works by scanning the road ahead for possible vehicle collisions. While the Pre-Collision System searches for vehicles, Pedestrian Detection alerts you to any pedestrians that step into the Corolla’s path. Once an object has been detected, the Corolla will alert you with an audio/visual signal and activate braking assistance.

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
The Lane Departure Alert (LDA) system helps keep your Corolla in your lane. The system will provide a visual warning on the MID screen and an audible alert. If you don’t take corrective steering action, the Steering Assist (SA) System will activate and gently steer you back into your lane.

Automatic High Beams
The Automatic High Beams help make you feel more comfortable driving at night. A camera detects headlights of oncoming vehicles and this system will switch between high and low beams automatically — so you can focus on driving safely.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) uses an intelligent camera and forward-sensing radar tech to track the distance and speed of the car directly in front of you. Based on the information it gathers, DRCC will adjust your speed accordingly to maintain a preset following distance.
