    Any time at low speeds. It also includes drive force control

    If you turn off ICS but you're using S-IPA, ICS will still work if it detects an obstacle that could result in a collision.

    Time to get your Gen 4 or Prime, then.
    I think you might spend a good chunk of that savings on insurance, though. :(

    This feature is something that you can used a lot. Just wish when you open the door and hit the other car you get electrocuted. Lol

    Air bags for doors ??

    The defective inflator would likely cause a big dent, though. :cry:

    The video on that webpage shows IPA2 as assisting with the *exit* from a tight space! Does anyone here have this functionality and tested it?

    Yes. It's on the Gen 4 Prius (and Prius Prime/Prius PHV)

    ICS and IPA were included with the PCP option on my car. I purchased this because I wanted the upgraded stereo system. I'm glad that I did. Great features; the guidance and warnings show up on MID. Did I leave any acronyms out? Is there one for Simple Advanced Parking Guidance System?

    SIPA

    There is no SAPGS yet

    (and yes IPA and APGS are pretty much the same system with different names depending on whether it's a Toyota or a Lexus product. Confusingly, it's also referred to as APGS in our Toyota owners manuals)

    I forgot to include Toyota Safety Sense P - TSS-P.

    The owners manual is four separate volumes, the main weighs in at a hefty 800 pages, many of them with something like 1 silly little diagram. I do not keep them in the car, trying to improve my gas mileage!

    There are not acronyms there are initialisms.
    On a technology department I could wish my car automatically park into garage.

    When I saw the thread title, I thought of Android ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich) and wondered how it reduced Toyota accidents in Japan.

    I just assume he's talking about this. It's also on the new 5 Series too.
