Intelligent Clearance Sonar with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking
An available Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS)12 audibly and visually warns you when it detects nearby pedestrians or vehicles. Under certain low-speed conditions, Rear Cross-Traffic Braking (RCTB)13 is designed to reduce engine power and, if necessary, apply the brakes.
12 Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) is designed to assist drivers in avoiding potential collisions at speeds of 9 mph or less. Certain vehicle and environmental factors, including an object's shape and composition, may affect the ability of the ICS to detect it. Always look around outside the vehicle and use mirrors to confirm clearance. See Owner’s Manual for limitations and details.
13 Do not rely exclusively on the Rear Cross-Traffic Braking system. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to braking capability and the function, detection and range of the sensors. See Owner’s Manual for limitations and details.
Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)14 warns you when a vehicle in the next lane enters RAV4’s blind spot on either side. When in Reverse, available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA)15 helps detect vehicles approaching from either side, visibly with side mirror indicators and audibly with warning tone.
14 Do not rely exclusively on the Blind Spot Monitor. Always look over your shoulder and use your turn signal. There are limitations to the function, detection and range of the monitor. See Owner’s Manual for limitations and details.
15 Do not rely exclusively on the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection and range of the system. See Owner’s Manual for limitations and details.
RAV4 comes standard with a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System16, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver knee airbag, front passenger seat-cushion airbag, in addition to front and rear side curtain airbags. Eight airbags total -- all focused on your safety.
16 All the airbag systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All airbags (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating airbag, always wear seatbelts and sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible. Do not put objects in front of an airbag or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. See Owner’s Manual for limitations and details.
Star Safety System™
Smart tech helps keep you safe. This standard comprehensive suite of six advanced safety features is designed to help keep you out of harm’s way. The system includes enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)17, Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA)18, and Smart Stop Technology® (SST)19.
17 Vehicle Stability Control is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions, weather and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for limitations and details.
18 Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper vehicle maintenance, and tire and road conditions. See Owner’s Manual for limitations and details.
19 Smart Stop Technology® operates only in the event of certain contemporaneous brake and accelerator pedal applications. When engaged, the system will reduce power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology® is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. See Owner’s Manual for details.
