Toyota Corolla Cross: Safe Exit Assist

The safe exit assist is a system that uses rear side radar sensors installed on the inner side of the rear bumper to help occupants judge if an approaching vehicle or bicycle may collide with a door when opening it or cancel opening of the door, to reduce the possibility of a collision

WARNING

■Cautions regarding the use of the system

  • The driver is solely responsible for safe driving. Always drive safely, taking care to observe your surroundings.
  • The safe exit assist is a supplementary system that, when the vehicle is stopped, informs occupants of the existence of approaching vehicles and bicycles.

    As this system alone cannot be used to judge safety, over-reliance on this system may lead to an accident resulting in death or serious injury.

In certain situations, this system may not function to its fullest extent. Therefore it is necessary for the occupants to visually check for safety directly and using the mirrors.

System components

Using the driving support systems

  1. Multi-information display

Turning the safe exit assist on/off.

When the system determines that the possibility of a collision with a door is high, the target door is displayed on the multi-information display.

Also, if the door is opened when the outside rear view mirror indicator is illuminated, a buzzer will sound as a warning.

  1. Outside rear view mirror indicators

When a vehicle or bicycle which may collide with a door (other than the back door) when opened is detected, the outside rear view mirror indicator on the detected side will illuminate. When a door on the detected side is opened, the outside rear view mirror indicator will flash.

  1. Driving assist information indicator

Illuminates when the safe exit assist is turned off. At this time, "Safe Exit Assist OFF" will be displayed on the multi-information display.

■Outside rear view mirror indicator visibility

In strong sunlight, the outside rear view mirror indicator may be difficult to see.

■Buzzer

If the volume setting of the audio system is high or the surrounding area is loud, it may be difficult to hear the buzzer.

■Customization

Some functions can be customized.

WARNING

■To ensure the system can operate properly

Safe exit assist sensors are installed behind the left and right sides of the rear bumper respectively.

Observe the following to ensure the safe exit assist can operate correctly.

  • Keep the sensors and the surrounding areas on the rear bumper clean at all times.

If a sensor or its surrounding area on the rear bumper is dirty or covered with snow, the Safe Exit Assist may not operate and a warning message will be displayed.

In this situation, clear off the dirt or snow and drive the vehicle with the operation conditions of the SEA function satisfied for approximately 10 minutes. If the warning message does not disappear, have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

Using the driving support systems

  • Do not attach accessories, stickers (including transparent stickers), aluminum tape, etc. to a sensor or its surrounding area on the rear bumper.
  • Do not subject a sensor or its surrounding area on the rear bumper to a strong impact.

If a sensor is moved even slightly off position, the system may malfunction and vehicles may not be detected correctly. In the following situations, have your vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

  • A sensor or its surrounding area is subject to a strong impact.
  • If the surrounding area of a sensor is scratched or dented, or part of them has become disconnected.
  • Do not disassemble the sensor.
  • Do not modify the sensor or surrounding area on the rear bumper.
  • If a sensor or the rear bumper needs to be removed/installed or replaced, contact your Toyota dealer.
  • Do not paint the rear bumper any color other than an official Toyota color.
