With UMW Toyota’s launch of the new Yaris yesterday, netizens have been quick to (positively) react to the car’s comprehensive range of features and offerings.
On the safety front, particularly in the E and G variants, the Yaris is equipped with a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert system. Also provided in these variants is a front Digital Video Recorder.
What most would not realise is that the dashcam also offers Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning features, which are not tied to the car’s system.
