What Invest in Toyota Safety Sense™? Find out how you can Make Malvern area Roads Safer here at Sloane Toyota of Malvern

We've long thought of car accidents as inevitable -- an unavoidable a risk we all take when we pull out of our driveways every morning. But the automotive industry has been approaching road safety much differently in recent years, integrating high-tech collision protection and avoidance features into mainstream vehicles. Toyota has its own unique take on collision mitigation, and it's called Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS). This suite of active technologies includes five separate driver assistance features that work together to help make roads safer -- and when you invest in a TSS-equipped new Toyota here at Sloane Toyota of Malvern, you make Devon, West Chester, Exton, Conshohocken and Thorndale roads safer every time you drive.
