The Highlander, part of Toyota's lineup since 2001, is a three-row midsize SUV with seating up to 8. Exceeding the average MPG (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and the carbon footprint. It has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Toyota Highlander has exceptional horsepower for its class, packing substantial oomph. With optional all-wheel drive (AWD), it can easily bypass mud and snow. Toyota offers a 3-year, 36,000-mile basic warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Active safety features with Toyota's Safety Sense can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2020 Toyota Highlander: Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). Some safety features are optional on the 2020 Toyota Highlander--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/SA) and Blind Spot Monitor.
Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Toyota Highlander. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.
