From Lexus:

Featuring the latest version of Lexus Safety System +, the brand’s advanced package of active safety technologies, the new Lexus crossover also boasts outstanding passive safety credentials resulting from its ultra-rigid Global Architecture-C platform and 8 airbags fitted as standard.

This second generation of Lexus Safety System + incorporates several new features to help prevent or mitigate accidents. These include daytime cyclist detection and now also night-time pedestrian detection as part of the enhanced Pre-Collision System (PCS). Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and Lane Tracing Assist provide SAE level-2 automated driving support – aiming at reducing driver operation while remaining in control of the vehicle.
