Wherever you travel, whether it's out on the open road or zipping about city streets, it's reassuring to know when you get behind the wheel of Prius, you're protected by some of the most advanced safety features and technology ever developed.
All-Range Active Cruise Control[N16] maintains a preset distance between you and the car in front by using built in sensors to continually monitor the speed of the car ahead then automatically adjust your speed accordingly. When there's no car in front, dynamic radar acts like normal cruise control, maintaining a regular preset speed.
When reversing out of a parking space in Prius i-Tech, the Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)[B4] helps make it safer by detecting the vehicles approaching from either side and then providing a warning via the Blind Spot Monitor[B4] in the corresponding side mirror.
When travelling on the open road, Lane Departure Alert (LDA)[B4] uses a camera to detect lane markings and provides a visual and audible warning if it detects you're deviating out of your lane, steering assist can then be engaged.
Inside every Prius you'll have the reassurance of knowing the driver and passengers are protected by seven airbags that surround and help cushion them in the event of an emergency. This includes driver and front passenger airbags, driver's knee airbag, front & rear curtain airbags and front driver & passenger side airbags.
Prius features advanced technology to deliver better braking performance and control. Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) automatically delivers brake force to the wheels that require it the most while Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) balances the braking force between all four wheels to help keep you in control in slippery conditions. Each time you press down on the brake pedal or decelerate, controllers divert kinetic energy which would normally be lost as heat and noise (or simply wasted), back to the battery for recycling to power the electric motor later on.
Traction Control (TRC)
Traction Control helps you drive away smoothly on uneven or slippery surfaces such as wet roads or muddy sports fields.
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)
Prius is equipped with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) to give you more control and increase traction during acceleration and cornering.
