You can actually use the advanced voice recognition feature to select your media, or even your contacts to use the Bluetooth® for hands-free phone communications.
Toyota Safety Sense™ C
While the Toyota Corolla iM is equipped with the normal active and passive safety features that are designed to prevent an accident and protect passengers in the event of one, it also features Toyota Safety Sense™ C. This collection includes a variety of driver-assisting features that are available at the base level. These sophisticated features are there to provide extra assistance and security while out on the road.
The Pre-Collision System uses sensors to determine the likelihood of a collision based on the distance and rate of approach. It’ll notify you when it detects a possible crash while applying just enough brake pressure to get you to act in time. The Lane Departure Alert uses a front-mounted camera to detect and notify you if you begin to drift from your path.
