Safety

2018 Toyota Highlander InteriorHighlanders earned a five-star federal safety rating. Even better, the Highlander exceeds federal requirements as the first SUV in its class to have crash avoidance technology. A forward collision warning is paired with autobrake to shave seconds off of stops and reduce the chances of a collision. A pedestrian watch keeps an eye out for people who may step into the vehicle's path. Then it triggers an autobrake if the driver can't react fast enough. A lane departure watch trains cameras on the lane lines and alerts the driver if the SUV is venturing out of its safety zone. An assist can help the driver correct the SUV's trajectory. Other aspects include automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control. When you add all of these up, you'll find that the free package saves you quite a bit of cash while also offering your peace of mind. XLE and higher editions now have a blind spot monitor to keep an eye out of side traffic. The ToyotaCare system, which comes with your purchase, includes several free maintenance visits.
