Just like the previous version of a Toyota Highlander, the updated model has qualified for the Top Safety Pick+ rating.
Tested by the Insurance Institute for the Highway Safety (IIHS), the SUV meets the front crash prevention and headlight criteria not only when it is equipped with optional features, but also in standard flavor.
It managed to get Good overall ratings in the five crashworthiness tests, and which include the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and the head restraints and seats, while its headlights were noted as being Acceptable.
Said to be the improvement over the optional front crash prevention system used on a 2016MY, the newer system was rated as Superior, helping the Highlander avoid the collision in the 12 mph (19 km/h) test, while in the 25 mph (40 km/h) test, the car got out of the dangerous situation in 4 out of 5 runs, and slowed 21 mph the fifth time.
By qualifying for IIHS’ top award, a Highlander has joined other TSP+ Toyota vehicles, and including the Prius, Prius V, Corolla, RAV4, Camry, Lexus RC, NX, RX and ES 350.
