Discover Lexus Outstanding Standard Safety Features

Lexus prides itself on serving luxury to its customer base, so it should come as little surprise that Lexus safety features are some of the most innovative and premium features within the Canadian auto industry.

The Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 is standard on its premium models and designed to complement defensive driving techniques with the intent of preventing accidents from occurring in the first place. While all modern Lexus vehicles come equipped with standard collision protection, the vehicle safety features intend to ensure you never have to worry about collision protection.

Innovative and industry-changing, Lexus proudly offers it’s Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 as the standard on all models because everyone should drive safely. The system utilizes smart technology and sensors to solve some of the most common causes of accidents and decrease front-end collisions. Here is a brief overview of some of the standout features from the 2021 Lexus Safety System+ 2.0.


Stopping the Crash Before It Happens: What is a Pre-Collision System?

The pre-collision system is one of the most critical Lexus safety features designed to mitigate injury to you or anyone else on the roadway.

Not only can the pre-collision system use an intricate combination of cameras and sensors to detect if a vehicle is slowing or breaking in front of you unexpectedly, but it can detect the presence of a pedestrian or bicycle and automatically warn you.

For instance, the driver misses out in responding to the visual and audio alerts for some reason.

The innovative Pre-Collision System will respond in one of the following ways:

It will either apply the brakes to help prevent a collision or drastically slow down a vehicle to reduce the potential for injury from a collision.

The newest version of the Lexus Safety System +2.0 has enhanced radar range allowing it to detect pedestrians even in low-light situations and bicycles and pedestrians during daylight.

In particular, the system will warn drivers of oncoming issues while turning left and offers a backup emergency steering assist in helping the driver avoid objects, vehicles, and pedestrians detected in the vehicle’s path.


Stay in Your Lane: Meet the Innovative Lane Departure Alert

Lane departure alert with steering assist is another vehicle safety feature worth noting as a cornerstone of the Lexus Safety System +2.0. This luxury feature combats distracted driving by alerting drivers if their vehicle veers out of their lane and into another.

If the sensors detect that a vehicle is about to cross a lane without turning on a signal, the steering wheel will vibrate, and an audible alert will sound to remind the driver to correct their trajectory.

Depending on the severity of the lane departure, the technology may also provide minimal steering corrections to realign the car with the roadway and quickly resolve the issue.


What is All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control?

One of the most remarkable Lexus safety features is, without a doubt, the dynamic radar cruise control system that allows you to set your car to one speed that will auto-correct itself based on the distance and speed of the vehicle in front of you.

When there is a slower vehicle in front of you, your Lexus will automatically slow to match its speed and provide a clear and assured distance.

Once that vehicle speeds up or moves out of your lane, the cruise control will automatically return to its preset speed.

Even more impressive is the fact that the dynamic cruise control will continue to function down to a complete spot and can resume speed when traffic clears, making it a handy feature on long drives and crowded roadways.


Prevent Fatigue and Distractions with Lane Tracing Assist

Complimenting the dynamic radar cruise control is lane tracing assist which automatically activates when cruise control is activated.

The Lane Tracing Assist technology uses a combination of sensors to recognize lane markers and ensure that the car remains centred within its lane.

In simple language, the lane tracing assist keeps a close eye on lane markers to ensure that you don’t accidentally veer out of your lane while in cruise control.


Bask in the Light of Intelligent High Beams

Finally, the Lexus Safety System enhances driving by offering ultimate lighting options without compromising the vision of other drivers on the road. The intelligent high beam system can detect the incoming presence of another vehicle.

It will automatically turn down your high beams until the vehicle passes, at which point your high beams will restore. Intelligent high beams allow you fully see the roadway without sacrificing the safety of others sharing the roadway with you.
