Thanks to Dynamic Torque Control AWD, you’ll be able to maintain control and traction when roads get slippery. This system actively directs torque distribution to the rear wheels via an electromagnetically controlled coupling in the rear differential. It automatically shifts to AWD when turning the steering wheel and during acceleration to ensure optimum grip and avoid wheel slippage.


Equipped with an abundance of standard safety technologies, you’ll have the peace of mind you need to take on any journey. When utilizing Toyota Safety Sense™, you can take advantage of a number of protective enhancements designed to increase your awareness and decision-making throughout each ride. This safety package comes with the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control for your assistance.

The safety enhancements don’t end there. With the Star Safety System™, you’ll be able to count on features like Traction Control, Brake Assist, Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, and more to help keep you free from harm’s way.


Carefully crafted with your comfort in mind, the Highlander includes a variety of convenience features for a pleasant ride. On frigid days, you and your passengers will enjoy available features like a heated steering wheel, and heated front and second-row seats. This SUV’s roomy interior offers seating for up to eight people, and includes reclining third-row seats for your guests’ relaxation.
