The latter warns the if there is a vehicle in the blind on either side, using radars to detect other in adjacent lanes.

Toyota has therefore optimised the stabiliser bar diameter and thickness, stabiliser bar bush inner front lower-arm stabiliser thickness and the frame KDSS thickness.

KDSS gives two previously contradictory benefits: wheel articulation for challenging driving and greater on-road and handling. The system improves safety, off-road capability and driving comfort and confidence.

It detects trailer based on information from the yaw-rate sensor, acceleration and steering sensor. If sway is the system uses deceleration and yaw-moment control to suppress the A slip indicator in the instrument warns the driver while the lamps illuminate to alert drivers. The system operates and does not require the addition of or any change to the trailer.
