2018 Toyota Highlander a Safe Bet for the Traveling Vienna, VA Family

When it comes to the security of you and yours, Toyota doesn't do anything small. It shows in the 2018 Highlander. The new Toyota mid-size SUV steps up its game, earning once more, for 2018, a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

So what did it take for the new Highlander to earn its 2018 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK stripes? For one, a rating of "Good" in driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, and roof strength and head restraint tests -- the highest the authority bestows. Secondly, a "Superior" rating for front crash prevention, which 2018 Highlander earns when equipped with a standard Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection -- luckily, one you'll find a part of its standard Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) suite. Third, the new Toyota Highlander needed an "Acceptable" headlight rating, which it took home thanks to halogen projector low-beam and halogen reflector high-beam lighting incorporating auto high-beam assist.

But, as with any new Toyota SUV, safety's a package deal, and it's the same for 2018 Highlander. The SUV's eponymous TSS-P technologies also include Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist to help it remain on course with feedback as well as Dynamic Radar Cruise Control for effective safe-distancing. Plus, the Toyota Star Safety System comes along for the ride, bringing with it the even keel afforded by Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control and the reliable stopping power of anti-lock braking with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist. There's even Smart Stop Technology to enhance efficiency.

Of course, these aren't to mention the extra mile Toyota Highlander goes with its rating of "Good" for its Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) restraint system. Nor that of its advanced rollover sensor-equipped, three-row airbag system, which includes an airbag at the driver's knee and one under the front passenger seat cushion. Needless to say, when the new Highlander is your traveling companion, so is peace of mind.
