LEXUS SAFETY

EXPERIENCE ACTIVE SAFETY ON EVERY JOURNEY

Human vision is remarkable. But it has limits, and can be fooled at times by perspective tricks. Learn how Lexus Safety Systems are designed to support your senses behind the wheel. Intelligent support for clear perception and confident driving.

LANE DEPARTURE ALERT & LANE KEEP ASSIST

STAY ON TRACK

Even the most focused drivers can be distracted. If you start to drift from your lane, Lane Departure Alert steps in to keep you on track. The steering wheel vibrates gently, and discreet sound and light notifications recommend you correct your path. Calm confidence is yours, especially on motorways and longer journeys.

CONTROLLED DIRECTION

A smart camera detects white and yellow lane markings. If you stray off course, an audio-visual alert is activated automatically. And, if you choose, Lane Keep Assist will apply an additional touch of counter-steering to guide you smoothly back into lane.

With the enhanced Lexus Safety System+ A, Lane Departure Alert goes a step further, detecting boundaries between asphalt and other surfaces such as grass, dirt and curb stone. This gives your eyes a dependable backup at all times, even on roads without clear markings.

AUTOMATIC HIGH BEAM & ADAPTIVE HIGH BEAM SYSTEM

INTELLIGENT
ILLUMINATION

Driving in the dark is one of life’s pure sensory pleasures, though navigating through the night presents new challenges. Our features support your vision, keeping you and your fellow drivers safe. Automatic High Beam turns on and off automatically when needed. Adaptive High Beam System takes this to another level, intelligently shading headlights for approaching vehicles, while surrounding areas stay fully lit.

CONFIDENCE AT NIGHT

Automatic High Beam uses smart sensors to stay several steps ahead, searching out and seeing what your eyes don’t immediately detect. Cameras on the windshield quickly identify both headlights of approaching vehicles and taillights in front of you, switching instinctively between high and low beam.

Adaptive High Beam lights up the road, but acts to keep passing vehicles in shade. In addition, Lexus Safety System+ A uses rows of LEDs in a Two-stage Adaptive High-beam System to give you further refined control. When the sun goes down, your sight is supported, while ensuring other drivers aren’t dazzled.

BLIND SPOT MONITOR

CLEARER
VISION

Humans don’t have complete peripheral vision, so Blind Spot Monitor gives you the support you need. Designed to spot vehicles approaching from adjacent lanes, it warns you whenever another driver’s on the move. Retain your composure and change lanes with complete confidence.

ANTICIPATE OTHER DRIVERS

Powered by smart sensors, Blind Spot Monitor surveys the road on your behalf, scoping the areas you’d otherwise struggle to keep in view. It asserts itself when you’re changing lanes, to ensure vehicles in your blind spot aren’t overlooked.

It’s helpful when you’re parking too. A Rear Cross-Traffic Braking System helps you manoeuvre by keeping you aware of any vehicles coming your way, from either side. If it senses a collision, it supports you by applying the brakes. With clearer, wider vision, your wits are always about you.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL & PRE-COLLISION SYSTEM

DRIVING
CONFIDENCE

Human judgement is strengthened when teamed with smart driving systems. Adaptive Cruise Control determines the distance between you and the vehicles in front and adjusts your speed accordingly, whilst Pre-Collision System detects any vehicles and obstructions ahead. It warns you if a collision is likely and automatically brakes if you haven’t acted. With uncertainty reduced, you can drive with assurance.

RELAX ON LONGER JOURNEYS

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Pre Collision System use a millimetre-wave radar to scope out the road. Your speed is carefully controlled within a pre-set range to match the pace of other drivers. You’re warned if a collision is anticipated, and when contact is judged to be unavoidable, your brakes will be automatically applied.

In the new Lexus Safety System+ A we’ve enhanced ACC with Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) technology to track the path of vehicles ahead, helping keep you on the right track. Longer drives become less tiring, and the need to brake suddenly is a rare occurrence. Enjoy peace of mind on every journey.

THE FUTURE OF SAFETY

BORN TO PIONEER

The original Lexus LS redefined luxury and won critical acclaim for its performance, refined drive and dependability. Now the all-new LS for 2018 heralds another revolution, led by advanced new technology.

Our fully redesigned sedan debuts an enhanced system: Lexus Safety System+ A. This innovative suite of features includes world-first Active Steering Assist with Intuitive Pedestrian Detection, offering you new levels of intelligent assistance while driving.

THE FUTURE OF SAFETY TECHNOLOGY

THE NEW LS

LEXUS SAFETY SYSTEM+ A

Advanced active safety systems make the new LS more aware of its surroundings, offering you smarter support as a driver. Alongside the Pre Collision System, with world-first Pedestrian Alert and Active Steering Assist, we’ve upgraded existing systems like Lane Departure Alert, and our two-stage Adaptive High-beam System.

Also introduced to Lexus Safety System+ A is Front Cross Traffic Alert, helping prevent collisions at intersections; and our Road Sign Assist, which offers you road sign information via the LS’s large colour Head-up Display (HUD).

THE NEW LS

LEXUS CODRIVE

Lexus CoDrive offers high-level driving support in the new LS, intelligently reading your intentions while you’re driving to provide steering control. The enhanced system adds Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) to Dynamic Cruise Control, delivering seamless support for motorway driving.

By monitoring the path of the vehicle ahead, LTA keeps you on the right track, even when lane marking cannot be recognized by traditional camera systems. The result? Intuitive yet discreet driving assistance, with confidence as standard.

Do not use the Lexus Safety System instead of normal driving under any circumstances and please read the instructions before operating the system. The driver is always responsible for driving safely.
