Lexus Safety Technology

 Moving one step closer to a world without accidents.

At Lexus, we’re constantly looking out for the driver. It’s why every 2020 Lexus model and newer comes standard with Lexus Safety System+, a comprehensive suite of active safety equipment.* With the LS 500 and LS 500h, we’re closer than ever to realizing our ultimate vision: an accident-free world. From technology designed to automatically brake and actively steer* to sensors that can help warn you of cross-traffic* in an intersection to its 24-inch high-resolution Head-Up Display, this is not just the most sophisticated safety system ever offered by Lexus. 

Standard on most Lexus vehicles, Lexus Safety System+ is an integrated suite of four advanced safety systems designed to help in certain circumstances, from alerting you of pedestrians to helping you maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead.* On the 2019 ES, Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 pushes the technology even further with two additional systems that can provide road sign information and can even help keep your vehicle centered in its lane on highways with gradual curves.* 

Pre-Collision System

Lexus Safety System+* includes a Pre-Collision System* with Pedestrian Detection* that’s engineered to help detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in the path of your Lexus under certain conditions. Should it detect a potential frontal collision, it’s designed to automatically prepare Brake Assist* for increased brake force and, in some cases, can even automatically brake the vehicle to a stop.

Lexus Safety System+ 2.0* features enhanced radar and camera capabilities, so it’s possible for the system to help detect not only the vehicle ahead, but also a preceding bicyclist in daytime and even a preceding pedestrian in daytime and low-light conditions.* Should it detect a potential frontal collision, it can help automatically brake the vehicle to a stop.

Lane Assistance

Lexus Safety System+* offers a variety of lane assistance systems. Lane Departure Alert* is designed to provide an audible alert if an inadvertent lane departure is detected. Lane Departure Alert* with Steering Assist can take corrective measures with a slight pull on the steering wheel. Lane Keep Assist* can integrate with the cruise-control system to help prevent drifting before it occurs.

Lexus Safety System+ 2.0* adds a second lane assistance feature to Lane Departure Alert* with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist.* This hands-on system integrates with All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control* to help the driver keep their vehicle centered in the lane, even in traffic and on highways with gradual curves.

Intelligent High Beams

Intelligent High Beams* are included in both Lexus Safety System+ systems.* To help provide greater visibility for you as well as other drivers, this system offers added illumination to help keep you focused on the road. When the road ahead is clear, the system defaults to high-beam mode, then temporarily switches to low beams when it detects the headlamps or taillamps of vehicles ahead.

Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

Lexus Safety System+* on the 2019 IS, RC and RC F includes High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.* This system uses radar and camera technology to help you maintain a preset speed and following distance from the vehicle ahead. If you get closer than the preset distance, the throttle is automatically reduced and the brakes may be applied. As soon as the road ahead clears, your Lexus returns to its preset speed.

The other Lexus Safety System+ and Lexus Safety System+ 2.0* models include additional functionality with All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.* Whether at highway speeds or in stop-and-go traffic, this more advanced system is designed to detect if you get closer than the preset distance and automatically slow your vehicle—even to a complete stop.

Road Sign Assist

 

Exclusive to Lexus Safety System+ 2.0,* this system* uses a built-in camera to help provide road sign information in the instrument panel or, in the LS, even on the available Head-Up Display. In addition to displaying speed limit information, the system can alert you of Do Not Enter, Yield, and Stop signs you otherwise might have missed.
