Discover the Latest Toyota Safety Technologies in the All-New Corolla Hatchback

Oct 23, 2018

2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback in Blue Flame

Hold on to your seatbelts, the all-new Corolla Hatchback has arrived! Building on decades of experience as one of the world’s most popular and sought-after cars, the 2019 Corolla Hatchback has the core Toyota attributes that customers know and love, as well as new features and technologies that push safety and performance to new levels.

The Next Generation of Toyota Safety Sense

And with the debut of the all-new 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback comes the second generation of our suite of safety features: Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0). As part of our ongoing commitment to safety technology, the latest version of TSS builds on the original system to bring enhanced performance and ground-breaking new functionalities to our vehicles.

More specifically, there are three major feature and functionality-based improvements drivers will notice when using TSS 2.0:

Firstly, TSS 2.0’s Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection uses a new camera and millimeter-wave radar that can detect pedestrians in low-light situations. The new camera and radar also add a new cyclist detection capability in day-time situations. The system can detect crossing and preceding cyclists, which helps broaden protection for those who share the road.

The TSS 2.0 Pre-Collision System can now detect both pedestrians and cyclists who may be at risk of being hit, even in conditions where they may not notice the driver. In some situations, the vehicle can even apply automatic braking to prevent a collision.

TSS 2.0 also improves the Pre-Collision System’s ability to reduce speeds for potential vehicle-to-vehicle impact, improving from 40 km/h to 50 km/h. Speed reduction capability for pedestrians and cyclists also improves in TSS 2.0 from 30km/h to 40 km/h, for both day time and low light situations.

Effectively, with TSS 2.0, your Corolla Hatchback acts as another set of electronic eyes on the road ahead to protect you and your loved ones from potential hazards*****.

TSS 2.0 also includes a new feature called Lane Tracing Assist**. The Lane Tracing Assist feature can only be activated when Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is in operation, and is not available on models equipped with a manual transmission because they do not offer Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

The benefit of this feature is that it helps to help reduce driver fatigue and support safe driving, especially in traffic congestion or long highway trips.  Lane Tracing Assist operates by making use of both the camera that is centered at the top of the windshield and the millimeter-wave radar mounted to the front of the vehicle. These two pieces of equipment recognize white and yellow lane markings, or the path of a preceding vehicle if lane markers are temporarily not available.

By doing so, the vehicle can identify and actively track the center of the lane when Full-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is activated by providing steering assistance to the driver, even on curved roads. When in use, the Lane Tracing Assist feature can be identified by two new blue lines that are located outside of the pre-existing white lane markers shown in the Multi-Information Display. If lane markers are not clearly visible, the system will also operate by tracking the path of the preceding vehicle ahead.

This operation can be identified by 3 white dots appearing in the MID display instead of blue lines. The Lane Tracing Assist system is helpful for those who drive on the highway frequently, as they work hand-in-hand to keep the Corolla Hatchback within its lane and maintain a safe distance between itself and other vehicles.

With the improvements to the TSS 2.0 Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist*** system, the Corolla Hatchback can now actively detect an uncurbed road edge without visible lane markers available, enhancing its ability to effectively provide alerts and corrections if your vehicle veers from its respective lane. It is important to note; the road edge detection capabilities will function best when there is a clear differentiation in colour between the road and the colour of the landscape beside it. For example, if an uncurbed road is lined with green grass, the system can potentially detect the road edge.

In some instances, if the material beside the uncurbed road is of similar colour, such as a gravel shoulder on the side of the road, the system may not be able to detect the road edge. If the Corolla Hatchback experiences an un-signalled departure  crossing a lane marking or road edge, your car will provide both audible and visual alerts. If your path isn’t corrected, the vehicle can provide slight steering adjustments to keep you on course.

When enabled, the Lane Departure Alert system will operate at speeds above 50 km/h. With Lane Departure Alert, Corolla Hatchback works automatically with your safe driving to enhance safety and maintain a safe position within its lane of travel.

More of the Safety You Know and Love

In its lifetime, the Corolla has long been recognized as a safety leader – our pioneering TSS-P system actually launched with the 2017 sedan model. Though the new system is significantly upgraded, drivers familiar with TSS-P’s original features will notice many have carried over with improvements, including the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, and Automatic High Beams.

For instance, the Automatic High Beams****** feature, carried over from the TSS-P system, uses a special camera to analyze the road ahead and switch the vehicle’s high beams on and off in response to oncoming traffic.  Reduced glare is ensured at all times, while lessening eye strain – and it means there’s one less thing to worry about when driving at night.

With TSS 2.0 included on all models, Corolla Hatchback drivers get access to world-class safety tech, without the world-class price tag. Not long ago, features like these were the stuff of science fiction. But today, they’re standard on the all-new Toyota Corolla Hatchback.

*Dynamic Radar Cruise Control is designed to assist the driver and is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. System effectiveness depends on many factors such as weather, traffic and road conditions.
** Lane Tracing (Trace) Assist (LTA) is designed to read visible lane markers and detect other vehicles under certain conditions. When potential lane departure is detected, LTA provides a visual warning and either an audible alert or vibration in the steering wheel and can apply a slight steering force. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Effectiveness is dependent on many factors including road, weather and vehicle conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
***Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist is designed to read lane markers under certain conditions and provide visual and audible alerts and slight steering force when lane departure is detected. It is not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving.
**** Drivers should always be responsible for their own safe driving. Please always pay attention to your surroundings and drive safely. Depending on the conditions of roads, vehicles, weather, etc., the TSS systems may not work as intended. Please see, your local Toyota Dealer or Owner’s Manual for details.
*****The Pre-Collision System is designed to help avoid or reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. The Pedestrian Detection System, part of the Advanced Pre-Collision System, is designed to detect a pedestrian or bicyclist ahead of the vehicle, determine if impact is imminent and help reduce impact speed.  It is not a collision avoidance system and is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness depends on many factors, such as speed, size and position of pedestrians and weather, light and road conditions
****** Automatic [Intelligent] 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 additional limitations and details.
