Safety Connect®*

Safety Connect®* features Automatic Collision Notification, Stolen Vehicle Location, Emergency Assistance Button (SOS) and Enhanced Roadside Assistance* services. An embedded cell phone with GPS technology puts drivers in touch with the 24-hour Safety Connect Response Center. The driver can press the SOS button to request emergency assistance*—but in the event of airbag* deployment or a severe rear-end collision, the call is placed automatically without any driver interaction. Subscription required. One-year trial subscription included.
Standard On: GS 350, GS 450h, GS 350 F SPORT

Pre-Collision System* with Driver Attention Monitor

The Pre-Collision System* available on the GS includes a Driver Attention Monitor* that is designed to detect if you have your eyes closed or are facing away from the road when an obstacle is detected ahead. If the system determines either condition is met, it will attempt to warn you, and, to help you avoid a potential collision, it's designed to automatically begin braking a full two seconds before impact. To help you maintain a preset following distance from the vehicle ahead, the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* system uses radar technology to sense the speed of any vehicles in front of you. If the vehicle gets too close to the vehicle ahead, the throttle is automatically reduced and the brakes are applied. As soon as the road ahead clears, the vehicle will return to its preset speed.
Optional On: GS 350, GS 450h, GS 350 F SPORT

Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management*

This system* is designed to predict and take steps to help prevent a skid even before it occurs by using a combination of individual-wheel braking, vehicle stability control, torque modulation and steering torque assistance.

Whiplash Injury Lessening front seats*

In the event of a rear-end collision, the Whiplash Injury Lessening* front seatbacks are designed to push backward to deflect and absorb energy from a rear-end collision. The seats also have active headrests*, which reduce the space between the occupant's head and headrest, limiting excessive head movement and helping to decrease the severity of whiplash-type injuries.

Driver support systems

The Blind Spot Monitor* is designed to detect and warn you of vehicles approaching or positioned in the adjacent lanes, while Rear Cross-Traffic Alert* can help provide peace of mind when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side. Lane Keep Assist* with Lane Departure Warning* uses a camera to monitor visible lane markings, warning you if you are drifting, and then can take corrective measures to help steer you back into the lane. And Intuitive Parking Assist uses sensors to detect surrounding objects and uses audible tones and an indicator on the multimedia display to notify you of a detected object's location and proximity.
