Driving Tips: 2022 Toyota 86 Breaking Features User Guide

With the 2022 Toyota 86, you can experience driving perfection at its finest as cutting-edge technology and dynamic performance come together. By acting as your copilot, the Driving Tips System maximizes the potential of this legendary sports car and improves your driving experience. Let’s examine the cutting-edge features that the Driving Tips System offers in this introduction, as it becomes more than simply a car but also a companion in the quest for driving proficiency.

BSD/RCTA

The BSD/RCTA consists of rear corner radars with Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. These functions of BSD/RCTA are the systems that detect objects and vehicles to the rear and draw attention to the driver when changing lanes or when driving in reverse.

System features

BSD/RCTA consists of the following functions.

  •  To detect a vehicle in a blind spot on an adjacent lane or a vehicle approaching at high speed while driving the vehicle (Blind Spot Detection)   To detect a vehicle approaching from the right or left while reversing the vehicle (Rear Cross Traffic Alert)

The system uses radar sensors for the following features. The BSD/RCTA radar sensor has been certified by the radio wave-related laws of the U.S. and other FCC-compliant countries and Canada. When driving in other countries, certification of the country where the vehicle is driven must be obtained. For certification in the U.S. and other FCC-compliant countries and Canada, refer to

Blind Spot Detection (BSD)

  • The system notifies the driver of the presence of vehicles in its blind spot.
  • If the system detects a vehicle in its blind spot, it warns the driver by illuminating the BSD/RCTA approach indicator( s) on the outside mirror(s).
  • If the driver operates the turn signal lever in the direction where the BSD/RCTA approach indicator is illuminating, the system warns the driver of dangers by flashing the BSD/RCTA approach indicator.Toyota 86 2022 Using other driving systems fig (1)
  • (A) Operating range

Lane Change Assist (LCA)

  • The system notifies the driver of vehicles approaching at a high speed in the neighbouring lanes.
  • If the system detects a vehicle approaching at a high speed in the neighbouring lanes, it warns the driver of dangers by illuminating the BSD/RCTA approach indicator(s) on the outside mirror(s).
  • If the driver operates the turn signal lever in the direction where the BSD/RCTA approach indicator is illuminating, the system warns the driver of dangers by flashing the BSD/RCTA approach indicatorToyota 86 2022 Using other driving systems fig (2)
  • (A) Operating range

Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

The system notifies the driver of another vehicle approaching from either side when driving in reverse. This feature helps the driver check the rear and side areas of the vehicle when moving backwards. If the system detects a vehicle approaching from either side while moving backwards, it warns the driver of dangers in the following way.

  • The BSD/RCTA approach indicator(s) on the outside mirror(s) flashes.
  • A warning buzzer sounds.
  • An icon appears on the multimedia system screenToyota 86 2022 Using other driving systems fig (3)
