Toro also won technological renewals on the brakes. Now, it has the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) in the Ranch and Ultra versions, being optional for the Freedom and Volcano configurations. Toro Endurance, however, was left out of the driver assistance equipment.
ADAS has autonomous emergency braking (AEB), automatic headlight switching (AHB) and lane departure warning (LDW). The first works through a camera positioned in front of the car, detecting the distance from the vehicle in front. When approaching too close, the driver receives an audible and visual signal, followed by a light brake application.
The AEB also works if the system detects that the brake has not received enough force, increasing the pressure to the level necessary to avoid a collision. If the driver does not react to an immediate risk of crash, the system can also fully brake Toro.
Through the AHB, the vehicle turns the headlights on or off, analyzing various forms of lights, including headlights, rear lights and ambient light. This part works by a camera mounted on the rear view mirror. He also turns off high-beam headlights if he sees other car lights approaching. The car's headlights are Full LED.
LDW, the lane departure warning, uses the camera front to detect the demarcations of the lane in front of the vehicle and monitor its position in the lane. If the car is about to move unintentionally off the track, it warns the driver by means of a visual, audible signal and a steering wheel vibration.
Inside, the new Fiat Toro also has the Cluster Full Digital 7 '' in all versions. In it, the instrument panel is completely digital, with a TFT screen for better viewing of information and messages without abbreviations. Models with automatic transmission AT6 will be sold with the Neutral Function, which automatically puts the transmission in the Neutral (N) position when the vehicle stops in drive (D), to save fuel.
