Lexus IS 300 Safety
With 10 standard airbags and the Lexus Safety System+, the 2018 Lexus IS 300
has been recognized as an IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK and been awarded a 5-Star Overall Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Lexus Safety System+ includes safety features, such as the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, which can detect and alert the driver of an approaching car or person and bring the car to a complete stop.
It can also slow the car down with the flow of traffic by using High-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. This maintains cruise control while decreasing the throttle if it detects that the car in front of you has slowed down.
The system will keep you in your lane, too. Lane Departure Alert uses a camera system to identify when the car begins to drift out of its lane and sends audio and visual alerts, as well as steering-wheel vibrations. If no action is taken, the Steering Assist system gently steers the car back into the center of the lane.
This high-tech system will help you see, too. Intelligent High-Beam Headlamps sense when there are no other cars on the road and flips on your high-beams. When it detects other cars, it automatically shifts down to low-beams.
