Smart Safety & Safety Systems Available on the 2016 Toyota Prius
Features to help you drive more confidently and focus on a saver drive.
Blind Spot Monitor
If Prius detects a vehicle in its blind spot, the available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) system alerts you through an illuminated indicator on the appropriate side mirror to help you determine when it's safe to change lanes.
Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
When you slowly back out of a driveway or parking spot, available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) is designed to provide an audible indicator to help warn you of approaching vehicles.
Integrated backup camera
When you’re in Reverse, the standard integrated backup camera helps by giving you a view of what the camera detects from the rear. This feature is especially useful when you’re parking in a tight spot or backing up.
Rain-sensing windshield wipers
Don’t let foul weather put a damper on your drive. The available rain-sensing variable windshield wipers on Prius automatically adjust to match the amount of rain hitting the windshield and the speed of the car. Just set the wipers to “auto,” and Prius does the rest.
Toyota is devoted to safety and dependability, and proper vehicle maintenance is important to both. That's why we include a no cost maintenance plan with the purchase or lease of every new Toyota Prius for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first. 24-hour roadside assistance is also included for three years and unlimited miles.
Star Safety System™
Prius comes standard with the Star Safety System™, a suite of six advanced safety features that includes enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
