In keeping with the family-oriented nature of the SUV, Toyota added a range of safety options
Automobile

The 2014 Highlander boosts its standard safety equipment with a total of eight airbags and a newly standard rearview camera. Hill-start assist is also included.

Among the new safety options are blind-spot monitors, a lane-departure warning system, and parking sensors. Also bundled into a Driver Technology Package is a pre-collision system coupled to adaptive cruise control.

That forward-collision warning system is the feature that puts the Highlander into the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's good graces. This year, the IIHS demands those systems for vehicles it includes on its Top Safety Pick+ list--which the Highlander makes, thanks also to an "acceptable" score on the IIHS' new small-overlap crash test.

In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testing, the Highlander has earned a five-star overall score, with four stars for frontal crash and five stars in side-impact testing.

Visibility is better with the new Highlander, thanks to repositioned pillars and bigger rear-quarter windows.

Conclusion

It's an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and the new Highlander comes with a standard rearview camera.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
