Over the course of decades, Toyota has earned a well-respected reputation for vehicle safety. Significant investment in research and years of continual development means that Toyota is a world-leader in its use of the latest safety technologies, encompassing everything from design and construction methods and materials to active monitoring systems that can intervene to help a vehicle avoid a potential collision.

In a series of blog posts, we examine each of these technologies, exploring the history of their use in Toyota vehicles, the way in which the technology works and the resulting benefit for occupants travelling in a Toyota vehicle.

As new technologies are introduced, we’ll update the posts to incorporate these advances, so bookmark this information hub to stay up-to-date with Toyota’s latest improvements to vehicle safety.
