Summer is officially here and it's important to have a capable vehicle if you want to get the most out of this season. If we had to choose, one of our favorites would be the 2018 Toyota Highlander. This three-row crossover that can seat 7 or 8 passengers is perfect for families who need a lot of seats or drivers who like a lot of cargo space.

Here are three summer-friendly features we love on the Highlander

Comfy Seats: If you take long summer drives then it's important to have a comfortable seat. We suggest getting the LE Plus, which is one level up from the base. It has an 8-way power adjustable seat for the driver, so instead of needing to stop frequently to stretch your legs and back you'll be able to go until you reach your destination.

Protection: A lot of people hit the road during the summer, and we think you'll appreciate that every Highlander trim comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense package. TSS has the following advanced safety features:

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

The XLE and Limited also have Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alerts.

Ample Accessories: to make a vehicle really fit your lifestyle you sometimes need to accessorize. With all three-rows in place there's 13.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which isn't really enough for luggage. However, you can get roof rails and a cargo box! Like hiking, but don't want muddy boots to ruin your ride's interior? Get all-weather floor mats that you can easily hose down. We also love the cargo cover that hides your goods from prying eyes.

Come down to our dealership this week to check out our Highlander selection and our entire new Toyota inventory, go on a test drive, and find the one that you want to break in this summer.
