PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM* WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION*

The Pre-Collision System (PCS) with Pedestrian Detection is engineered to detect vehicles in the path of your Lexus under certain conditions. Should the system detect a pedestrian or determine a frontal collision is imminent, it's designed to automatically prepare Brake Assist* for increased brake force, is able to automatically begin braking before impact, and can even brake the vehicle to a stop at speeds above 6 mph.

VEHICLE DYNAMICS INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT (VDIM)* WITH SPORT MODE

VDIM is designed to 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. Headed to the track? The exclusive Sport mode setting adjusts the sensitivity of the system, raising the threshold before VDIM intervenes, and enabling you to push the vehicle to its limits.

LED HEADLAMPS AND LED DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS

Make your presence known even before you arrive. The unique headlamp design employs striking LEDs that not only illuminate your path, but also give a brilliant, high-contrast impression. Housed in the aggressively low front fascia, these headlamps are a bold addition to the spindle grille. Inset daytime running lights (DRL) accentuate the design and can make your Lexus more visible to vehicles approaching from a distance.

BRAKE SYSTEM

Every Lexus features the latest in braking technology. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes include an Anti-lock Braking System to help maintain steering control while braking. Brake Assist* helps provide additional braking boost in panic-stop scenarios. And Electronic Brakeforce Distribution modulates the amount of stopping power sent to the front and rear wheels, for enhanced control.

10-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.

SMART STOP* TECHNOLOGY

This system is designed to automatically reduce engine power when both the brake and accelerator pedals are pressed at the same time under certain conditions.

BACKUP CAMERA* WITH DYNAMIC GRIDLINES

When you put the vehicle in reverse, the view from the backup camera is shown on the multimedia display in full color with dynamic gridlines to assist you with parking and other maneuvers.

LED TAILLAMPS

Taking the exterior design to the next level, the LED rear combination lamps are constructed to create a powerful presence while consuming less power for greater efficiency. LED taillamps also last longer and illuminate faster than conventional bulbs, possibly giving drivers behind you more time to react to the brake lamps.
