Safety of Left Hand Drive Toyota Landcruiser 200 from Dubai and US. RHD Land Cruiser 200 Australia, NZ, UK, LHD Land Cruiser Dubai
By Jack Kates
Land Cruiser is one of the safest vehicle around. It slew of features from VSC, A-TRC, Multi-terrain ABS, EBD, BA, slew of airbags and reversing camera all give peace of mind.
Let Land Cruiser 200’s vast list of safety credentials inspire you with confidence and peace of mind when you hit the road.
When it comes to protecting passengers and those around you safety is not negotiable. That is why Land Cruiser 200’s designers strove to ensure excellent safety performance in worst case scenarios.
In the area of active safety, braking performance has been increased by enlarging the brake size, and the new Multi-terrain ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) senses the surface you are driving on and adjusts accordingly. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Active Traction Control (A-TRC) optimise braking to each wheel as required.
An impressive 12 airbags are built in as standard equipment including driver and front passenger front, knee and side airbags and full length curtain shield airbags. VX Limited models also have additional second row side airbags.
Vehicle Stability Control
Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) helps LandCruiser 200 hold its direction when driving through a corner. It does this by dampening understeer (front wheel sideways skid) as well as oversteer (rear wheel sideways skid) by automatically adjusting the engine output and braking force distributed to each wheel.
Active Traction Control (A-TRC)
Active Traction Control (A-TRC) manages the amount of torque distributed to each wheel, preventing tyres from locking. Brake pressure is electronically controlled at each wheel to suppress wheel spin and maintain sufficient traction, drive force is then optimally distributed to all four wheels.
Multi-Terrain Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
The Multi-Terrain Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent wheels from locking in the event of emergency braking. It can also actively detect off-road conditions such as ice, sand, mud, gravel and dirt, and then adapt to different terrain for optimal braking power.
