Arriving late this summer, the Lexus HS 250h will be the first vehicle offered with the new Lexus Enform + Safety Connect telematics system.
Safety Connect, a service that will be offered on both Toyota and Lexus vehicles, provides a support network in the event of an emergency—offering automatic collision detection, locating a stolen vehicle, SOS, and roadside assistance. The other side of it, Lexus Enform is more of a convenience feature, focused on helping users find local points of interest, like recommended restaurants or museums, and even allows owners to load specific locations onto their navigation system.
The two services are distinct, and Safety Connect will be available on non-navigation optioned HS sedans, though it will still require a subscription fee. For more information, you can read Lexus’ full press release for all the details.
