A Comfortable Interior Helps You Enjoy the Road Ahead

The Highlander was built for comfort and convenience. It has an available wireless smartphone charging station that’s compatible with both your Apple iPhone and Android smartphone. The two-tone XSE interior has red seats outlined in black leather trim for that extra sporty feel that enhances every kind of adventure. 

With this vehicle, you’ll also be able to enjoy ventilated, heated seats that can either cool down or warm up, depending on what your preference is. Other enjoyable features include third-row seating, a panoramic moonroof, and an available 12.3” touchscreen display that provides access to voice command and all your favorite apps. 

Technology That Drives You into the Digital Future

Safety Features  

Toyota Highlander

In terms of safety, the Highlander comes with a number of impressive features. All of them give you greater peace of mind during your commute. These features include: 

  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control 
  • Pre-Collision System with Low-Light Pedestrian Detection
  • Road Sign Assist
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Automatic High Beams

With the available Road Sign Assist feature, your vehicle will automatically detect important road signs such as Do Not Enter signs, stop signs, and speed limit signs. So if you have a new driver in the family, this feature can give you greater peace of mind that they’ll be driving safely and adhering to the rules of the road. 

The Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control system allows you to set your desired speed, and with the help of the vehicle-to-vehicle distance control, allows you to maintain a safe following distance from the vehicle ahead of you. 

Furthermore, the automatic high beams will make it easier for you to see what’s ahead of you anytime. This is whether you’re driving at night at speeds above 25 miles per hour. If another vehicle is approaching, the system will automatically toggle between low and high beams. That way, you can keep your focus on the road ahead of you.
