Technology Highlights in Toyota Cars

Finding the right Toyota car, truck, or SUV isn’t just about coming to your Phoenix Toyota dealership, even though that’s a great start. It’s also about finding the right combination of features and options that make your daily drive fun and rewarding. Luckily, the new Toyota vehicles at Bell Road Toyota are an embarrassment of riches when it comes to great tech features.

You’d have to set aside a couple of hours if we were to explain every bit of innovative technology that goes into a car like the 2017 Toyota Prius V. Instead, we’re going to dive deep on three key technologies that we think are particularly important.

Toyota Safety Systems

Toyota STAR Safety System and Toyota TSS (the latter of which will be standard on many more 2018 Toyota models) are among the reasons so many Toyota vehicles have top safety scores from the IIHS and NHTSA. More importantly, they keep you and your family safe. They include features like stability and traction control, lane departure warning, smart cruise control, and blind spot monitoring.

Toyota Entune

Toyota Entune works in tandem with your phone to support a wide range of functions. These include traffic and navigation, music, points of interest, hands-free calling and texting, and quite a bit else besides. Some features require a subscription (your Phoenix Toyota dealer will have details), but taken as a whole, Entune helps you get a lot more out of your Toyota Highlander or other new Toyota SUV.

Wireless Charging

Right now, Qi Wireless Charging is limited to upper trims on Toyota hybrid vehicles. It’s induction-based, so all you need to do is put your mobile device on a special charging mat. It’s handy if you don’t want wires cluttering your console.

Of course, not all technology is available on all models and trims, and the upper trims of cars like the Toyota Camry will have the best features available. Be sure to speak to your salesperson about your options. Bell Road Toyota is conveniently located at 2020 West Bell Road in Phoenix, AZ.
