Help ensure safety for both vehicles (of different weights and heights) at the time of collision.
"Compatibility" is the way of thinking that vehicles of different weights and heights should both be safe at the time of crash. Both types should be considered when analyzing safety performance from the impact on the lightweight vehicle to reducing the damage from the heavyweight vehicle. Toyota utilizes the concept of this compatibility in the approach to help improve the collision safety for both the driver's vehicle and the other party's vehicle with a 2 ton class vehicle.
