LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM+*
Lexus Safety System+ is an integrated suite of four active safety technologies designed to work together in order to pave the way to a world with fewer collisions and better-informed drivers. Beyond advanced, Lexus Safety System+ is also standard.
The available backup camera uses an inconspicuous lens mounted above the license plate to enable the driver to view more objects in the vehicle's path when driving in reverse.
ALL-SPEED DYNAMIC RADAR CRUISE CONTROL* WITH AUTOMATIC BRAKING*
To help you maintain a preset following distance from the vehicle ahead, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses radar technology to sense the speed of any vehicles in front of you. If you get too close to the vehicle ahead, it can automatically reduce your Lexus' speed—even to a complete stop—at speeds of up to 24 mph. And, as soon as the road ahead clears, the vehicle returns to its preset speed.
TRIPLE-PROJECTOR ULTRA-COMPACT LED HEADLAMPS
Make your presence known even before you arrive. The intelligent headlamp design employs striking LEDs that not only illuminate your path, but also give a brilliant, high-contrast impression. Housed in the aggressively low front fascia, these headlamps are a bold addition to the spindle grille. Inset daytime running lights (DRL) accentuate the design and can make your Lexus more visible to vehicles approaching from a distance.
LEXUS ENFORM SAFETY CONNECT*
Lexus Enform Safety Connect offers you the peace of mind of knowing that Roadside Assistance* will be there when you need it most. Whether you're involved in a collision and unable to call for help, your vehicle is stolen, or there is any other type of emergency, assistance can be sent directly to your vehicle's GPS location. Lexus Enform Safety Connect is complimentary for the first 10 years of ownership.
The front-passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult or a child, or is vacant. In case the system detects a child or empty passenger seat, the system prevents the passenger's front, side and knee airbags from being deployed. The front passenger's airbag features two chambers, creating an indentation in the center impact area that helps to provide occupant protection in a severe frontal collision.
A Lexus first, a four-point pop-up hood system is designed to help enhance pedestrian protection while also maintaining a low hood design. Pedestrian protection sensors communicate with the airbag* sensor system in order to raise the hood in the case of a collision and increase the clearance between the hood and engine.
INTELLIGENT HIGH-BEAM HEADLAMPS*
To help provide added visibility for you as well as other drivers on the road, intelligent high-beam headlamps offer added illumination when the road ahead is clear and temporarily switch to low-beam when they sense another vehicle ahead.
Every Lexus features the latest in braking technology. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes include an Anti-lock Braking System to help maintain steering control while braking. Brake Assist* helps provide additional braking boost in panic-stop scenarios. And Electronic Brakeforce Distribution modulates the amount of stopping power sent to the front and rear wheels, for enhanced control.
INTUITIVE PARKING ASSIST*
Intuitive Parking Assist utilizes inconspicuous sensors integrated into the front and rear bumpers that are designed to detect surrounding objects. Using audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display, the system can notify you of a detected object's location and proximity, helping with routine tasks like parallel parking.
BLIND SPOT MONITOR* WITH REAR CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT*
To help you change lanes with confidence, the available Blind Spot Monitor is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes. And for added peace of mind, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert can help you when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side.
RIGID BODY STRUCTURE WITH CRUMPLE ZONES
Helping to dissipate the force of a collision, crumple zones in the front and rear are intentionally designed to compress at a controlled rate, helping protect occupants within the more rigid passenger compartment.
LANE KEEP ASSIST*
Lexus Safety System+ offers multiple technologies designed to help prevent inadvertent lane departure.* Lane Departure Alert* with Steering Assist can warn you if it determines you are beginning to drift and can even take corrective measures to help keep you within your visibly marked lane. Additionally, Lane Keep Assist can take this a step further by helping the driver remain in the center of the visibly marked lane, to help prevent lane drifting before it occurs.
DIMENSIONAL REAR COMBINATION TAILLAMPS
Taking the exterior design to the next level, the LED rear combination lamps are constructed to create a powerful presence while consuming less power for greater efficiency. LED taillamps also last longer and illuminate faster than conventional bulbs, possibly giving drivers behind you more time to react to the brake lamps.
PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM* WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION*
The Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection is engineered to detect vehicles in the path of your Lexus under certain conditions. Should the system detect a pedestrian or determine a frontal collision is imminent, it's designed to automatically prepare Brake Assist* for increased brake force, and is even designed to automatically begin braking before impact.
