Toyota Safety Sense vs. Honda Sensing

July 25th, 2018 by

Is Toyota Safety Sense Better than Honda Sensing Technology?

New Toyota and Honda vehicles can be equipped with a variety of exclusive infotainment systems and safety systems designed to reduce accidents and protect passengers, but which automaker offers a superior package for Fishers drivers? That depends on how you view your safety and security:

  • Toyota Safety Sense: Every new Toyota vehicle from model year 2017 onward is equipped with one of two Toyota Safety Sense packages at no additional charge.
  • Honda Sensing: Honda Sensing is available on all new Hondas, but only on select trim levels, only in one version, and often with an additional charge.

What is Included in Toyota Safety Sense?

Toyota Safety Sense is offered at two levels; TSS-C and TSS-P. The vehicle you choose determines the package your vehicle will be equipped with:

  • TSS-C: Toyota Safety Sense C is the foundational package available on most of Toyota’s smaller vehicles. TSS-C features Pre-Collision with Vehicle Detection, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams.
  • TSS-P: Toyota Safety Sense P is available on larger Toyota vehicles and includes the systems mentioned above, as well as Pedestrian Detection, Steering Assist, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.

Other Features like Road Sign Assist and Lane Tracing Assist are available on the new Toyota Corolla hatchback.

While Honda Sensing does offer many comparable features, the Honda lineup doesn’t offer the options you can get from a Toyota. You’ll see this when you compare vehicles like the Toyota Corolla vs Honda Civic, or Toyota RAV4 vs. Honda CR-V.

Toyota’s inclusion of these features as a standard part of their new vehicle line, when other manufacturers make it an added expense, showcases the automaker’s commitment to the safety and security of their drivers.
