Safety Sense C

All Prius C models in 2017 will come with the Toyota Safety Sense C package. This comes with a selection of active and passive safety technologies that work together to help keep you safe while driving out on the road. These systems are much more comprehensive than most of the standard safety features you’ll find on vehicles today.

The Passive Features

Within the Prius C there are some pretty impressive passive safety features that you’ll benefit from each time you take it out onto the road. A total of 9 airbags help pad any collisions that you might have while driving. There’s also a stability control system that helps you maintain control while driving and makes handling the vehicle in poor situations a bit easier as well.

The Active Features

The active features are the most impressive part of the Toyota safety package. The car comes with tech designed to help you avoid most accidents with ease. There’s automatic braking that reacts to obstacles in the road. There is a lane departure system with cameras that pick up yellow and white lines to help the vehicle stay within the designated driving area. There’s also automatic high beams that turn on and off at night, depending on traffic conditions on the surrounding roads. Overall, the active features create more reliable driving conditions and help you stay on the road even when you become distracted while driving.

The latest Prius C model will be safer and more reliable overall than many other compact vehicles on the road, and you don’t even have to pay extra in order to enjoy those benefits.
