Whenever you're shopping for a new vehicle, it's important to know what features will keep you safe and protected on the road.

At Fred Beans Toyota of Flemington, we understand those concerns and have written up a review of the 2021 Toyota RAV4 for our friends and neighbors in Flemington, Montgomery, and Clinton, NJ.


2021 Toyota RAV4: Driver Assistive Safety Features

The RAV4 is equipped with a multitude of driver-assistive safety features, packed together under the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 (TSS 2.0) technology suite. In this section, we'll discuss a few of these far-ranging features.

One example is the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, which uses an integrated camera and radar system to help you reduce the possibility of a collision.

Another feature is Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), which works in conjunction with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. When these systems are active and lane markers are visible, the LTA uses both the lines on the road and preceding vehicles to help make sure your vehicle remains centered in its lane.

TSS 2.0 also includes Road Sign Assist, which utilizes a forward-facing camera to identify speed limit, stop, Do Not Enter, and yield signs. When identified, each one is then projected on the information display. This gives the driver a safe advantage, since they are more likely to keep to local speed limits.

This is just the beginning of the safety covered with the TSS 2.0. You can experience it all together when you get behind the wheel.

2021 Toyota RAV4: Active and Passive Safety Features

The RAV4 also includes substantial active and passive safety technology. Similar to the TSS 2.0 suite, the active features are grouped as the Star Safety System™ (SSS™). Some of these include:

  • Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control
  • Anti-lock Brake System
  • Electronic Brake-force Distribution
  • Smart Stop Technology
  • Traction Control
  • Brake Assist

What's great about the SSS™ is that most of these features are straightforward-several are involved with the brake system of your RAV4, while a few assist the stability of your vehicle.

Passive safety is important here as well. There are eight airbags strategically placed around the interior cabin-seat-mounted side airbags for both driver and front passenger, an airbag for the knee of the driver, another one for the front passenger, and curtain airbags running the length of the rear and front ends of the cabin.

The RAV4 also has the protection of young children in mind with the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers of Children) system. This system includes lower anchors on the outboard rear seats and strong tether anchors on all rear seats, which help to keep your little ones safe and secure in the cabin.

2021 Toyota RAV4: Safety Ratings

The RAV4's ability to maintain occupant safety is one of the many reasons its safety ratings are so great.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given it a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, highlighting a few of the available safety features we've discussed.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given the RAV4 high marks in multiple sections, and has also named it a 2021 TOP SAFETY PICK.

Both agencies agree that the RAV4 is a solid choice to keep you and your passengers safe and protected while on the road.
