Active safety features with Toyota's Safety Sense greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Toyota Prius: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Toyota Prius--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) and Blind Spot Monitor.
Another safety feature seems simpler but should still be considered. Optional Automatic High Beams (AHB) on the 2022 Toyota Prius automatically switches off high beams headlights when another vehicle is nearby.
