Lexus is committed to keeping you safe by helping to prevent accidents before they happen. Lexus Safety System+ comes standard on most Lexus vehicles. It is an integrated suite of four advanced safety systems. Lexus Safety System+ is designed to help you by alerting you of pedestrians, and by helping you maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. Lexus is part of a future of informed drivers and fewer collisions. Currently, Lexus offers some of the most advanced safety features on the road.

On the 2019 ES, Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 also includes two additional safety features that can provide road sign information and can help keep your car centered in its lane on freeways with gradual curves.

Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

Under certain conditions, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection will detect vehicles or pedestrians in the path of your Lexus. If the system detects a pedestrian, or determines a frontal collision is imminent, it may activate an audio and visual alert while preparing Brake Assist for an increased braking response. If the driver does not brake in time, the system may automatically begin braking before impact and can brake the vehicle to a stop at speeds above 6 mph.

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist

Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist uses a high-resolution camera to monitor visible lane markings and determine the vehicle's position within the lane. If the vehicle sways within, or out of the lane at a speed above 32 mph, the system will attempt to alert the driver with audio and visual warnings, and steering wheel vibrations. If the driver does not respond to the warnings, Steering Assist will make temporary corrective measures by pulling slightly on the steering wheel.

Intelligent High Beams

Intelligent High Beams help to provide added visibility for you as well as for other drivers. They offer added illumination to facilitate your visual focus on the road. When the road ahead of you is clear, the system defaults to high-beam mode. It will temporarily switch to low beams when it detects the headlamps, or taillamps of vehicles ahead. 

All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control uses radar and camera technology to help you maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle in front of you. Whether you're flying down the freeway, or crawling through bumper-to-bumper traffic; the system may detect if you get closer than the preset distance and could automatically slow or stop your vehicle, if necessary. If you are driving at a freeway speed and traffic clears up ahead of you, your Lexus will return to its preset speed. 
Lexus Safety System+ is a comprehensive suite of advanced technologies. Lexus understands that the best collision protection is collision prevention. Lexus designed its Lexus Safety System+ to protect its drivers, their passengers, the drivers and passengers in other vehicles, and pedestrians from injuries caused by collisions. Lexus Safety System+ represents the latest innovation in a long history of Lexus advancements and innovation in design and safety.
