2015 Toyota Highlander for Sale Near Salida, CA

Safety Comes First with the Toyota Highlander


The 2015 Toyota Highlander for sale near Salida, CA, offers drivers lots of safety features to help keep the whole family safe.  In fact, the Highlander and Highlander Hybrid were recognized for their high level of safety and were named an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus when equipped with an available pre-collision system1.

A Tire Pressure Monitor System is a standard feature on every 2015 Toyota Highlander, and this system monitors tire pressure constantly and then alerts the driver if a tire becomes critically underinflated.  Brakes are important to any vehicle, and when they become too they may become less effective.  To avoid brake fade, the Highlander’s front brakes have a ventilated disc design that helps to dissipate heat so drivers can rely on their brakes.  To help keep kids safe, the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) System 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.  This system helps to ensure that children’s car seats are securely fastened to the car.



The 2015 Toyota Highlander for sale near Salida, CA, includes the standard Star Safety System.  This system combines six active safety features to help prevent a collision before it happens.  On such feature is Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control2, which can help to prevent wheel-slip and the loss of traction by applying brake force to the wheels that need it and reducing engine power.  This system reads data from the steering wheel sensor and the ABS wheel-speed sensors to analyze the vehicle’s response to the driver’s steering inputs.  If the vehicle deviates from the direction the driver is steering, the Enhance Vehicle Stability Control helps to correct the situation.

In the event of a collision, the 2015 Toyota Highlander for sale near Salida, CA, has a host of features to help protect passengers and drivers.  An Impact Absorbing Body Structure helps do divert crash energy way from passengers.  Front and rear crumple zones can help to absorb some of the impact energy and direct it away from the cabin, which is built with a strong structure that does not deform easily.   The Active Airbag System3 includes 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 for all rows.  Drivers can find out more about these and other features when they visit Modesto Toyota for a test drive.

[2] Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner's Manual for further details.

[3] All the airbag (AB) systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All ABs (if installed) are designed to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions: frontal and knee ABs typically inflate in frontal collisions; side and side curtain ABs in side collisions; Roll-Sensing Curtain ABs at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral G-force. In all other accidents, the ABs will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating AB, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects in front of an AB or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of an inflating AB may cause serious injury or death.
