Active safety features with Lexus's Safety System+ can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Lexus RC: Pre-Collision System with Brake Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Lane Departure Alert, and Blind Spot Monitoring.
A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Lexus RC. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
