Toronto, Ontario – Toyota has announced its new Star Safety System, making it the first full-line manufacturer to make six active safety features standard on every new 2011 vehicle. The systems are vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, brake assist and smart stop technology.
One of the first vehicles to feature the Star Safety System is the 2011 Toyota Corolla, which goes on sale in January and also includes fresh styling, more standard features and updated option packages.
“Toyota continues to develop and incorporate technologies that advance the safety and performance of our vehicles, and the Star Safety System embodies this commitment,” said Stephen Beatty, managing director of Toyota Canada. “The Star Safety System is a clear commitment to our customers that no matter which Toyota they choose, safety comes standard in every vehicle.”
The details of each of the safety systems can be found in the Safety section at Toyota.
