Safety is most likely your main concern when you’re shopping for a new car. You want a vehicle with updated technologies designed to help you avoid an accident, minimize the consequences of an impact, and protect you and your passengers. Toyota prioritizes safety, too. To prove it, the automaker is rolling out a next-gen safety system, the Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0, on the 2023 bZ4X, the first of the automaker’s lineup of new electric vehicles.
“Toyota has enhanced the performance of each function and added new functions to assist in normal driving conditions,” according to the automaker. “The goal of TSS is designed to help prevent or mitigate accidents, further reduce traffic fatalities and injuries and ease the burden on drivers.”
The Toyota Safety Sense™ 3.0 improves many of the driver assist technologies the automaker grouped in the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5 suite. The previous generation of the Pre-collision system has been updated to be more sensitive with the inclusion of Low-Light Cyclist Detection, Daytime Motorcyclist Detection and Guardrail Detection. When the 2023 bZ4X is engaged in Lane Tracing Assist mode, the Lane Recognition system is more acute.
With the TSS™ 3.0 system, all trims of the 2023 bZ4X boast Blind Spot Monitor. It also introduces the Safe Exit System.
