By adopting a newly developed platform called TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) (GA-C platform), it is possible to obtain a wider interior space than the current model. By adopting a newly-developed platform, such as realizing high aerodynamic performance, it achieves a significant evolution from the current model by “lowering the center of gravity” and “increasing body rigidity”.
All models of the second-generation next-generation Toyota Safety Sense installed on the new Alphard / Vellfire, which will be released on January 8, 2018, will be standard equipment. A laser radar and camera are used to ensure excellent recognition performance and reliability, and collision avoidance support PCS, LDA, and AHB are packaged. Collision avoidance support / damage mitigation performance for high speed areas.
A lane departure alert (LDA) camera recognizes white and yellow lines in the driving lane, and if a possible lane departure is detected, a warning is given to the driver with a buzzer and display to avoid collision accidents due to lane departure. Support.
Automatic high beam (AHB) camera detects headlamps of oncoming vehicles or taillights of preceding vehicles and automatically switches between high beam and low beam to reduce glare for other vehicle drivers and to ensure forward visibility at night support.
Radar cruise control Radar cruise control that uses a millimeter-wave radar to detect the inter-vehicle distance from the preceding vehicle and adjusts the speed according to the vehicle speed of the preceding vehicle within the set vehicle speed, while keeping a constant inter-vehicle distance. Adopted. The lane change of the vehicle ahead is detected by millimeter wave radar and camera, and smoother acceleration / deceleration control is realized. Toyota is researching and developing various safety equipment and systems based on the “Integrated Safety Concept” with the aim of “zero traffic accident casualties”, which is the ultimate wish of the mobility society. In addition to making efforts, we are strengthening a wide range of traffic safety initiatives through “participation in traffic environment maintenance” and “road safety awareness activities for people”.
