A Step-by-Step Guide to Toyota’s Park Assist Feature

The Intelligent Park Assist System on the Toyota Prius uses advanced sonar and automatic steering capabilities to help maneuver the vehicle into parallel and perpendicular parking spaces. When you would like to engage this feature, simply follow these steps:

  1. Press the park assist button to the left of the steering wheel.
  2. Look at the central display screen for instructions.
  3. When a space is detected, the system will tell you to move forward or backward.
  4. Stop the vehicle, and shift to reverse when prompted.
  5. Take your hands off of the steering wheel, and allow it to move itself.
  6. Maintain control of braking force if needed.
  7. Shift to drive when prompted.
  8. When ready to leave the spot, use similar prompts and direction to help the vehicle exit the spot.
