2018 Toyota Highlander Yuma AZ

There are a lot of amenities that both the 2018 Toyota Highlander in Yuma AZ and 2018 GMC Terrain bring to the table, which is fitting considering their respective representation of two of the top model families in America. You'll find heated seats, remote start and a power liftgate with both crossovers, even though the Highlander's opens to nearly 20 cubic feet greater of space. Those aren't the only advantages that the 2018 Highlander delivers, however. Thanks to a roomy, 8-person interior (all of whom are able to relax on stitched leather seats) and acoustically engineered windshield meant to keep outside noises outside your cabin, the Highlander is unrivaled in comfort, convenience and assurance. Add this to a long collection of driver assistance features as part of Toyota Safety Sense™, and the choice is clear. Some of these innovations include:

  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Many more!
