Lexus has always been a trendsetter when it comes to safety. The Japanese luxury automaker has been at the forefront of high-end safety technology development that protects occupants and prevents accidents.

Lexus’ research and development team have developed the most advanced active safety technologies you can find on modern vehicles, and it shows when you look at the Lexus Safety System+.

Lexus Safety System+ Highlights
The Lexus Safety System+ includes four standout technologies that we’ll explore more closely.

Automatic High Beam
Automatic High Beam (AHB) is a system that automates your high and low beam headlights based on traffic. Designed to make your life easier while always ensuring optimal visibility, AHB will automatically switch high beams to low beams if an oncoming vehicle is detected. In other words, you’ll always see what’s ahead of you without blinding other drivers.

Lane Departure Alert
Lane Departure Alert (LDA) does exactly what its name implies. It warns the driver should the vehicle swerve outside of the lane due to a distraction. The idea is to prevent these distractions from leading to a collision or a loss of control.

Pre-Collision System
The Pre-Collision System will warn you of potential dangers like a vehicle suddenly braking ahead of you or if you’re coming up on another vehicle too quickly. The idea is to warn you so you have time to react. If it’s too late, the system will apply the brakes for you.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) uses a wide range of sensors and radars to maintain a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you when activated. The system will keep the set distance by applying the brakes and/or adjusting the throttle. It makes life easier and your commute safer.
