It is the kind of accolades every vehicle strives for, but few earn. It's an honor that shows you are making the right decision when you need to get your family around Manteca and Turlock safely. Every year, the top safety organizations rate vehicles based on how they perform in their crash tests. The 2020 Toyota Highlander earned high marks for its performance in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Well enough, it was named a 2020 Top Safety Pick in the midsize SUV category. But this isn't news to Modesto Toyota. We've been fans of the Highlander for years.

What does it take to earn this honor from the IIHS? In the 2020 Highlander's case, you earn it by acing all of your crash tests. The 2020 Toyota Highlander earned the top grade of 'Good' in every crashworthiness test and netted 'Superior' ratings for its ability to avoid forward collisions and pedestrians. Everything from impact to headlights was considered, with each feature receiving top marks from the IIHS. The child seat anchors earned high marks for being easy to find.

This speaks volumes to the care the Highlander engineers have taken to design the safest crossover for your Stockton family. But it isn't just the design of the Highlander that makes it a great option when you need to cart your family around Tracy. It comes with plenty of standard safety features:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Active Lane Control
  • Lane-Departure Warnings

As you make your way around Modesto, you want to know the vehicle you drive is durable and dependable enough to keep your family safe. The rankings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety are an indication the Toyota Highlander is built to protect you and the ones you love on the road. This honor could be the tipping point you need to help you decide to make the Toyota Highlander the next midsize SUV to get your family to your destination safely.
