Smart Safety & Safety Systems Available on the 2016 Toyota Highlander
Features to help you drive more confidently and focus on a saver drive.
IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus
Exciting to drive and help keep you safe. Highlander and Highlander Hybrid have been recognized for their high levels of safety by being named a 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus when equipped with an available pre-collision system. Both vehicles not only are designed to help protect you in a crash, but also to help you avoid one. Because every adventure should be a safe one.
Star Safety System™
Highlander features the Star Safety System™, a suite of six active safety features that include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Ventilated disc brakes
When brakes get too hot, they can become less effective. It’s called brake fade, and it’s a surprise no driver wants. To help prevent it, Highlander’s front brakes use a ventilated disc design, which helps to dissipate heat and ensure confidence in the vehicle’s stopping power.
Advanced Airbag System
An Advanced Airbag System helps protect you and your family with driver and front passenger dual stage airbags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, a driver knee airbag, a front passenger seat-cushion airbag and Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags (RSCA) for all rows.
Child safety seat restraint system
LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) provides an added measure of safety for the smaller members of your family. LATCH includes lower anchors and tethers on the outboard second-row seats and a tether anchor on the middle seat of the second and third rows.
Tire Pressure Monitor System
A Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) comes standard on every Highlander. Designed to monitor tire pressure at all times, it alerts the driver when a tire or tires become critically underinflated and is one more way Highlander helps keep you safe.
