Toyota Corolla Axio and Corolla Fielder have been awarded top ASV+ (Advanced Safety Vehicle) rating from the JNCAP Preventive Safety Performance Assessment in Japan. The achievement has been attributed in part to the first-ever commercial deployment of the newly developed Toyota Safety Sense C collision avoidance support package in the cars. Both vehicles are the first in this fiscal year to receive full marks in the assessment (which was introduced last fiscal year).
The Preventive Safety Performance Assessment focuses on collision prevention and impact damage reduction capabilities, as well as lane departure detection and warning capabilities. Two levels of assessment are awarded: ASV+ and ASV. From this fiscal year, the program assesses the performance of displays that provide the driver with information captured by rear-facing cameras. The Toyota Safety Sense C package incorporated in these redesigned Corolla models in Japan features: Pre-collision System (PCS) with Brake Assist and Automatic Braking functions Lane Departure Alert (LDA), to detect and alert the driver if the vehicle starts to deviate from the lane Automatic High Beam (AHB), that ensures excellent forward visibility during nighttime driving
