If we talk about the reliability and safety of a car, Toyota vehicles are top of the list. No doubt
As most of us know about well-known safety system of Toyota that is TSS (Toyota safety sense™) that includes many safety features e.g. VSC (vehicle stability control), TRC (traction control) and ABS brakes with EBD and BA, GOA body etc.
Read these features in detail here in my previous article All these safety features are available without additional cost and exist in almost all upcoming Toyota cars.
But at this time, we’re interested in What are the new safety features this corolla 2020 is going to offer? Hold on, just continue reading.
TSS with additional active & passive safety features – 2020 Toyota Corolla in Pakistan
Adding more excitement to your new corolla craze, let me tell you that new corolla 2020 will be in the TNGA category that includes following new safety features. But before going to proceed with features, telling you little about TNGA.
What is TNGA?
TNGA “Toyota new global architecture” is a challenge platform made by Toyota company in 2015. This platform was made based on a concept of “making ever-better cars”. The main focus of TNGA is to enhance each model unique features by strengthening its core components.
Back to safety features, here’s the list
- PCS (Pre-collision system) available with pedestrian detection
- LDA (Lane departure alert)
- AHB (Automatic high beam)
- RSA (Road sign assistance)
- ACC (Adaptive Cruise dynamic control)
- Other features include SRS airbags, seatbelts for front and rear seat passengers
All hybrid corolla 2020 versions include one more safety feature that is,
- LTA (Lane trace Assistance)
When LTA and ACC both are active, they give more steering control to the driver and keep the car in the lane and maintain an appropriate distance from the vehicle in front.
When Interior is in the discussion, I prefer a car that provides the highest level of comfortability and aesthetics.
In comparison with other competitor cars, some Toyota models have average interior I admit but TNGA platform cars including new Toyota Corolla 2020 will have a luxury interior and have user-friendly features.
Some important features detail is here,
