When it comes to the 2017 RAV4, it’s safety first. And second. And third.
Driving can be unpredictable. That’s why we’ve created Toyota Safety Sense™,1 a group of advanced safety features designed to help protect you and your loved ones. No one can know what’s around the next corner, but thanks to RAV4 with Toyota Safety Sense™ standard, we can help protect you from it.
Pre-Collision System
When the Pre-Collision System determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a vehicle is high, it prompts the driver to take evasive action and brake, by using an audio and visual alert.

Lane Departure Alert
When equipped and enabled, if the system2 determines that the vehicle is on a path to unintentionally depart from its lane, the system may provide small corrective steering inputs to the steering wheel for a short period of time to help the driver keep the vehicle in its lane.

Automatic High Beams
When enabled, Automatic High Beams3 use an in-vehicle camera to help detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and taillights of preceding vehicles, then automatically switch between high and low beams as appropriate to provide the most light possible and enhance forward visibility.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection Function
If PCS w/PD4 5 determines that the possibility of a frontal collision with a pedestrian is high under certain conditions, it prompts the driver to take evasive action and brake, by using an audio and visual alert, followed by Brake Assist.5

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Once a vehicle speed is set by the driver, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control7 uses a front-grille-mounted, millimeter-wave radar and an in-vehicle camera to detect a preceding vehicle and help determine its distance.

1. Drivers should always be responsible for their own safe driving. Please pay attention to your surroundings and drive safely. Depending on the conditions of roads, vehicles, weather, etc., the system(s) may not work as intended. See Owner’s Manual for details.
2.The TSS Pre-Collision System is designed to help avoid or reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, driver input and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for details.
3. Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist is designed to read lane markers under certain conditions. It provides a visual and audible alert and slight steering force when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Effectiveness depends on many factors. See Owner’s Manual for details.
4. Automatic High Beams operate at speeds above 25 mph. Factors such as a dirty windshield, weather, lighting and terrain limit effectiveness, requiring the driver to manually operate the high beams. See Owner’s Manual for details.
5. The Pedestrian Detection system is designed to detect a pedestrian ahead of the vehicle, determine if impact is imminent and help reduce impact speed. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, size and position of pedestrians, driver input and weather, light and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for details.
6. Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for details.
7. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is designed to assist the driver and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as weather, traffic and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for details.
8. Government 5-Star Safety Ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) New Car Assessment Program (www.safecar.gov)
9. ToyotaCare covers normal factory-scheduled service for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for 2 years and unlimited miles. See Toyota dealer for details and exclusions. Valid only in the continental U.S. and Alaska.
