Toyota adds two safety features to 2020 lineup

The second upgrade, which Toyota calls Automatic Park, will automatically shift the vehicle into park or apply the electronic emergency brake in vehicles so equipped in the event the driver exits without shifting the automatic transmission into park.

A Toyota spokeswoman said the feature is activated when the driver’s side door is opened and the driver’s seat belt is unbuckled. The feature will be phased in beginning with the 2020 model year, Toyota says.

Toyota did not say how long it planned to take to phase in the safety features across its lineup.
