What is Toyota SafetySense?

Toyota has always put the safety of their customers first. This is why they have made their driver assistance suite standard across the entire 4Runner lineup. SafetySense includes blindspot monitoring with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, traction control, vehicle stability control, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, and adaptive cruise control. Of course, it's not all high-tech. The 4Runner still relies on standard safety equipment, including eight airbags including front, front seat-mounted side airbags, driver and passenger knee airbags, and roll-sensing side curtain airbags, as well as high-strength side-impact door beams.
