As an industry leader in automotive innovation, Toyota continues to push boundaries year after year. As drivers look for an enhanced driving experience inspired by the conveniences that new technology brings to so many areas of our lives, Toyota is here to deliver. Enter Safety Sense 2.5 Plus by Toyota: the newest generation of driver-assisted safety technologies launching in select Toyota vehicles in 2021. At Castlegar Toyota, we’ve got the inside scoop on what’s new with Safety Sense 2.5 Plus and plenty of inventory of the popular Toyota vehicles that will be featuring this new suite of safety tech. Let’s take a look at what BC drivers can look forward to from Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 Plus in 2021!

Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 Plus New Features

The award-winning 2021 Toyota Camry will be the first vehicle to boast Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 Plus, and will include exciting new features, such as:

• Toyota’s revolutionary Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection can now recognize cyclists during the day, and pedestrians during low-light situations. This system also has a new feature called Intersection Support, which can detect oncoming traffic during left-hand turns and sound an alarm to alert drivers. It can even brake automatically under certain circumstances to help prevent head-on collisions.

• A new system called Emergency Steering Assist has been designed to stabilize your vehicle within its lane during quick evasive maneuvers, such as avoiding another vehicle or cyclist. If you’ve ever had a hard time regaining control of your vehicle after jerking the wheel to avoid a potential collision, then you’ll understand why this feature can be so incredibly useful - especially on slippery mountain roads.

• The Adaptive Cruise Control feature has been redesigned to include a feature that makes passing slow moving traffic easier by automatically accelerating to a preset speed once you activate the turn signal.

• One of the most relevant features to debut on the 2021 Toyota Camry as a part of the Safety Sense 2.5 Plus suite is the new Rear Seat Reminder. This vital feature is designed to prevent drivers from unintentionally leaving something in the backseat once they’ve exited the vehicle, such as a laptop, or worse, a sleeping pet or child. Rear Seat Reminder has tremendous implications for helping to prevent accidents involving children and pets being left in hot cars each summer season.

Besides all of these innovative new safety features, Toyota Safety Sense 2.5 Plus will also include standard intelligent features from the Toyota Safety Sense suite, like Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist, Automatic High Beams, available Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Road Sign Recognition.

Safety Sense 2.5 Plus Will Debut on BC’s Best Selling Sedan, the 2021 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry has been North America’s best selling sedan for 18 years - long enough for children who were brought home from the hospital in a Camry to be driving one of their own! Within that time, Camry has gone through more innovative upgrades than just about any other sedan on the road (while maintaining it’s affordable stature), including featuring one of the first hybrid engines easily available to the general public, gorgeous stylistic redesigns, sport-performance upgrades, and some of the smartest safety and infotainment tech in the industry. With the new Safety Sense 2.5 Plus package, there is truly nothing that this smart sedan can’t do!

Castlegar Toyota is proud to be welcoming dozens of new 2021 Camrys to our dealership this fall, making this award-winning sedan available to drivers from Castlegar and across the Kootenays. Our team is at your service, and ready to demonstrate all of Camry’s cutting-edge tech, safety, comfort and convenience features that will forever change the driving experience for students, couples and families across BC.
