More Style, More Visibility

Building on the facelift model's sharpened head and tail lamp design, the latest version adopts sequential turn indicators and unique light-cluster treatment. Dramatic Y-shaped light guides are paired with high-intensity Bi-beam LED light clusters with integrated Daytime Running Lights (DRL). The foglamps in turn have also been upgraded to LED spec - creating impressive night-time visibility. 

The aesthetic treatment is not only reserved for the front, as the tail lamps too have been treated to some cosmetic surgery. A dramatic three-segment LED design, complemented by smoked light surrounds and horizontal cross section (which extends across the tailgate), help amp up the visual ante.

The darkened light features, pair perfectly with the black roof treatment as provided by the Bi-tone exterior treatment. Five striking colour combinations - White Pearl, Passion Red, Lunar Metallic, Cosmic Blue and Inferno Orange Metallic - offer expressive buyers a hue to match their personality.

More Safety Tech

The active safety system aka Toyota Safety Sense (TSS), has been upgraded with the addition of all-speed Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), while the Lane Departure Alert (LDA) system now boasts Lane Trace functionality.

Lane Trace Assist is a further evolution of LDA, where the system will not only help avoid unplanned lane departure, but assist with centring the vehicle within the lane while following the natural arc of the road. These features are in addition to the existing Pre-Collision System (PCS), Auto High Beam (AHB), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) - as part of the TSS suite.
