Toyota Makes the Prius Safer

The fuel economy and eco-friendly features of the Toyota Prius are two of the reasons why the hybrid remains popular with environmentally conscious consumers. However, as Toyota is also concerned with owner safety, the vehicles contain more protective features. See all the upgrades at our Hiawatha dealership.

When the vehicle veers into another lane without first using a turn signal, the driver receives an audible and a visual alert. The assistive steering mechanism also helps maintain the Prius on its proper path. Radar sensors located in the front of the Prius monitor the distance between vehicles. If the distance is too short, the alarm system activates again to signal the driver to slow down.

The alert system also engages when sensors detect possible obstacles in the front of the vehicle. The brake assist technology helps apply more force or activates automatically to steer clear of the danger. Make a point of visiting Cedar Rapids Toyota to test the features today.
