Toyota is adding new safety features to all it's 2017 models.

According to The Guardian, the Japanese automaker intends to put safety systems in 25 out of 30 Lexus and Toyota models.

Before the end of 2017, radars, laser beams, and cameras to prevent collisions will also come as standard features.

Chief Executive Officer of Toyota Motor North America, Jim Lentz, said these safety features are important because they will help prevent accidents.

High-level driver assist technologies can do more than help protect people in the event of a crash; they can help prevent some crashes from ever happening in the first place", he stated.
