Toyota Start Safety System - 6 Components

Star Safety SystemTM features six accident avoidance safety technologies to enhance your vehicle's stability, braking and traction

Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) 

VSC reduces engine power and applies brake force to all or individual wheels to help prevent wheel-slip and loss of traction.

Traction Control (TRAC) 

By applying brake force to spinning wheels on wet, icy, loose, or uneven surfaces TRAC helps get your vehicle on its way in any situation.

Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)

ABS prevents your brakes from locking up by pulsating brake pressure at a rate not humanly possible to help you stay in control in emergency braking situations.

Electronic Brakeforce (EBD) 

EBD is an added component to the ABS technology that helps keep the vehicle more stable and balanced when braking.

Brake Assist (BA) 

BA is designed to detect abrupt braking and then add the full pressure needed to aid in collision prevention.

Smart Stop technology (SST)  

As an extra measure of safety, Toyota created the Smart Stop Technology. This technology automatically cuts engine power and lets the brakes take precedence over the accelerator when both pedals are pressed at the same time. This is especially useful when travelling on steep inclines.
