    I think it sounds like a good deal for both you and the dealer. Also, if you pay enough taxes for 2018, you willl get full $4502 tax credit.

    Nope. They use the same radar but are not the same thing.

    BSM notifies you, via the yellow lit icons on the wing mirrors, about the potential of an object in your blindspot in the adjacent lane (left or right). It will flash rapidly if you indicate and there's a vehicle there.

    RCTA activates in reverse and scans left/right for approaching vehicles that are 90° to your direction of travel (so it may not catch vehicles if there's a curve in the road (left/right or elevation type curve) that may impede the radar's view of an approaching vehicle. It will alert you on the 4.2" MID along with an audible buzzer if it detects a vehicle as you are moving backwards. This version does not auto-brake (That's RCTB on certain Toyota models).
