2018 Corolla iM Safety Options
To have great peace of mind, it helps to drive a vehicle with comprehensive safety features. The 2018 Corolla iM comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C). This suite of driver-assisting technologies will help prevent accidents from occurring.
Here are just some of the safety features you’ll find in the TSS-C system…
- Pre-Collision System (PCS): If a front-end collision is imminent, this system will send audio and visual alerts to prompt you to take action. If you don’t react in time, the Pre-Collision System may automatically apply the brakes for you.
- Lane Departure Alert (LDA): This system uses a front camera to detect lane markings on the road. So, when you start to drift from your lane without using a turn signal, Lane Departure Alert will send a warning, so you can guide your vehicle back into your designated lane.
- Automatic High Beams (AHB): This system helps you see more clearly at night without blinding other drivers. It uses an in-vehicle camera to help detect headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of cars that you’re behind. The Automatic High Beams will then automatically toggle between high and low beams to provide the appropriate amount of light.
Another safety system included in the Toyota Corolla iM is the Star Safety System™. This suite of features enhances your vehicle’s stability, braking, and traction to stay in control. Included in the Star Safety System™ are Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, and Smart Stop Technology®.
