2020 Toyota Corolla Safety Features
Safety is one of the most important factors to consider when hunting for your next sedan near the San Diego, Kearny Mesa, and El Cajon area. The 2020 Toyota Corolla safety features provide an exceptional amount of protection, security, and convenience to its driver and passengers. Gain insight into the notable features offered by the Corolla that are designed to keep you and your passengers safe while out on the road with our detailed 2020 Toyota Corolla safety features review.
Toyota Corolla Active Safety Features
The Corolla offers several active safety features in its Star Safety System™. These features include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control, which provide extra braking power when traveling over slick terrain. They work with the Anti-Lock Braking System and will provide extra brake pressure to the slipping wheel to stabilize the vehicle. The Electronic Brake-Force Distribution helps add control by varying the brake pressure that’s applied to the front and rear wheels. Your Brake-Assist feature helps you achieve full-braking power during an emergency situation.
All of these systems are coordinated with the new Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) system. This system ensures that each system works together during tight corners and emergency situations, so the vehicle can be at your absolute control.
Passive Corolla Safety Features
In terms of passive safety features, the Toyota Corolla offers an advanced airbag system that measures the severity of impact during a collision, and will actively adjust the inflation pressure to provide enough cushioning for the front passengers while reducing the risk of injury. The vehicle also includes front and side-mounted airbags for the front passenger, a driver’s knee airbag, and side-curtain airbags for all outboard passengers. In total, the Corolla features eight airbags to keep you and your passengers safe.
The body of the Corolla was also redesigned to encompass more safety and collision protection. This includes the head-impact protection structure, as well as the front and rear energy-absorbing crumple zones with side-impact door beams and high-tensile-strength steel body panels.
Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0
One major component that takes the Toyota Corolla safety features even further is the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 bundle. This next-generation bundle is a collection of driver-assisting technology features that come standard with the Corolla. These systems utilize radar sensors that are mounted to the outside of the vehicle to measure distance and proximity, and relay the information to the respective features to keep you alert.
The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection can help you avoid a collision by detecting a possible impact and even going so far as to apply the brakes for you. It also includes low-light pedestrian detection and daytime cyclist detection, ensuring that you’re aware of non-motorists on the road.
The Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist recognizes the lines in the road and provides brake pressure while slightly turning the wheel to ensure that the vehicle remains on track. The addition of the Road Edge Detection with Sway Warning System will notify you when you’re nearing the edge of the road. The Road Sign Assist can detect street signs and will notify you what they mean, which is helpful if they’ve faded or are obscured by foliage.
With the Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, you can set your cruising speed along with a preferred distance from the vehicle ahead of you, and it will adapt to the flow of traffic by keeping the set distance. The new Lane Tracing Assist can ensure that the vehicle remains centered in its lane.
