The 2017 Toyota Prius C is no exception to this. If you are trying to find a hybrid that offers superior safety, then you should check out the Prius C! Take a look below to see what safety features come standard in the 2017 Toyota Prius C.
Standard safety features in the 2017 Toyota Prius C
The 2017 Toyota Prius C may be available at a few different trim levels, but safety is not something you have to pay more for when you’re picking up a Toyota. Every Toyota Prius C comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense C package. But what is all included in this package? Well, with TSS-C, you’ll get a Pre-Collision system, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams.
What do the advanced safety features in the 2017 Toyota Prius C do?
The Pre-Collision system works by alerting you of a potential collision with both audible and visual warnings. If the driver doesn’t take measures to avoid the collision and the system determines that the likelihood of a collision is very high, then it can even automatically apply the brakes.
Lane Departure Alert uses special cameras to find the painted lines on the road and will give you warnings if you begin to deviate out of your lane.
And finally, you might not think of Automatic High Beams as a safety feature, but it actually makes driving much safer for oncoming traffic, especially if you’re someone who forgets to turn off the high beams from time to time. If it’s safe to use high beams and you’re currently on low, then the system can also switch for you!
