Intelligent AFS provides optimum distribution of light from the headlamps based on the turning angle of the tires and vehicle speed. The system works in conjunction with an auto-leveling function to provide excellent visibility.
PKSA detects stationary objects such as walls in the direction of travel, as well as vehicles and pedestrians approaching from behind while reversing*2, and alerts the driver on the display and with a buzzer in the event that a collision is determined to be likely.
When the quasi-millimeter-wave radars in the rear bumper detect vehicles in adjacent lanes that aren’t visible in the door mirrors, the system activates an LED warning indicator in the relevant door mirror the moment a vehicle enters this blind spot.
To help check areas surrounding the vehicle that are difficult to see from the driver’s seat, the system shows a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle in real time on the 12.3-inch or 8-inch EMV displays, using a composite image taken by cameras mounted on the front, sides, and rear of the vehicle.
The ES features dual-stage SRS airbags (Front seats), SRS knee airbags (Front seats), SRS side airbags (Front and outboard rear seats) and SRS curtain shield airbags (Front and rear seats).
Vehicle data such as the current speed, engine rpm and gear shift selection is projected directly onto the windshield in the driver’s field of view. Simplified navigation commands, audio settings or other selectedvehicle data can also be viewed in the head-up display. (Optional)
The driver monitor system utilizes built-inCCD (Charge Coupled Device) digitalcameras with infrared LEDs to detect if thedriver is not facing forward or if their eyes closefor a certain length of time. The system thenactivates warnings as appropriate. (Optional)
EBD works with ABS (Anti-lock BrakeSystem) to help ensure optimum brake force is applied to each wheel. In emergencies, theBrake Assist system automatically increases brake force. TRC enhances the ability to grip the road,especially when starting off or acceleratingon uneven or slippery surfaces. Correctivemeasures are applied the moment the riskof wheelspin is detected, to help maintaintraction. Hill-start Assist Control maintains brakingpressure to help prevent the S350/GS250from moving backwards when starting on aslope.
In the event of a collision, it iscomforting to know that you and your passengers are protected by a strongsafety cabin.
The GS is available with Lexus’s advanced pre-crash safety system with drivermonitor with eye open/close detection system (Optional). Using sophisticatedradar and camera technology, it will warn you if you are not facing forward or if youreyes close for a certain length of time, and activate pre-crash brake assist andpre-crash seatbelts if it senses a collision is imminent. This radar technology is alsoused for the sophisticated radar cruise control (Optional).
