This year’s Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum is the perfect family car/SUV. The well-appointed interior has reclining third-row seats and can fit up to 8 people. This is essential for a large family. When the seats are folded down there is plenty of cargo space for our gear.

The available rear-seat Blu-ray disc entertainment system is a plus for keeping the kids occupied on long trips. The 8-inch display screen comes with RCA jacks, 2 wireless headphones, and a remote. There are 5 USB ports so that everyone can keep their devices plugged in and charged.
The safety of this vehicle is what makes it most attractive for a family. The Star Safety System includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology.
There are additional safety features that I like.
The Advanced Airbag System features 8 airbags to ensure our safety in the event of a collision. The first row front and side dual stage bags protect the driver and passenger. There is also a driver knee bag and a passenger seat cushion airbag. Roll-sensing Side Curtain Airbags are in all rows.
The Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) includes lower anchors and tethers on outboard second-row seats and a tether anchor on the middle of second- and third-row seats
A Tire Pressure Monitor System is a standard feature. Tire pressure is monitored at all times. If a tire becomes critically underinflated the system will alert the driver.
The Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum has some impressive technology onboard, such as the Bird’s Eye View Camera, Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Cross-traffic Alert, available Entune Multi-Media Bundle, and a three-zone climate control system.
