Class-leading* 10 Standard-airbag system*

The front-passenger seat is designed to detect whether the seat is occupied by an adult or a child or is vacant. In case the system detects a child or empty passenger seat, the system prevents the passenger's front, side and knee airbags* from being deployed. The front passenger's airbag* features two chambers, creating an indentation in the center impact area that helps to provide occupant protection in a severe frontal collision.

Pre-Collision System* with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control*

The available Pre-Collision System (PCS)* is engineered to detect an imminent frontal collision and automatically prepares Brake Assist* to help provide increased braking pressure the moment you step on the brake pedal. The system can even apply the brakes, to help reduce impact energy. To help you maintain a preset following distance from the vehicle ahead, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* 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 returns to its preset speed.
Optional On: IS 350, IS 250 F SPORT, IS 250, IS 350 F SPORT

Blind Spot Monitor* with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert*

The Blind Spot Monitor* can warn you if it detects vehicles in the blind spots of the adjacent lanes. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert* can provide peace of mind when backing out of a parking space by notifying you of vehicles approaching from either side.

Traction Control Systems

Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM)* can predict and take steps to help prevent a skid even before it occurs by using a combination of individual-wheel braking, torque modulation and steering torque assistance. Should the Traction Control (TRAC) system detect that one or more wheels are starting to slip, it's designed to automatically adjust the throttle and brakes to help restore traction.
Standard On: IS 350, IS 250 F SPORT, IS 250, IS 350 F SPORT

Performance braking system

- Four-sensor, four-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) - Four-wheel ventilated disc brakes - Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) - High-friction brake pads*
Standard On: IS 350

Brake Assist*

In some instances, drivers fail to push the brake pedal hard enough to engage the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Brake Assist* senses a panic-stop scenario by judging how quickly and how forcefully the driver hits the brake pedal, automatically applying increased braking boost until the driver releases pedal pressure.
