Drivers in Marion know that the Prius is one of Toyota’s hottest selling cars on the market, and has been for quite some time. What many drivers don’t know, however, is that the Prius has been upgraded to include some incredibly safe features in the event of a collision.

?In the new Prius, it starts out with Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert to warn when a vehicle in the adjacent lane enters the either blind spot. Also, when in reverse, RCTA detects approaching vehicles from the side to give a warning tone. Likewise, the Prius also boasts an integrated backup camera to help you see exactly what’s behind you when backing up in parking lots. One of the most modern features of the Prius, though, has to be the Adaptive Front-Lighting System with Auto-Leveling Headlights during curved roads. When combined with ten standard airbags and Toyota’s premium “Star Safety System”, a suite of six different safety features (like traction control, vehicle stability control and brake assist), it’s easy to see why so many people already love the newer, safer Prius.
