Toyota Highlander a top IIHS safety pick
And it comes in a hybrid version
One of the biggest automotive killers is rollover, and that makes the rollover ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) so important for fans of SUVs.
Fortunately, the Top Safety Pick of the IIHS for mid-sized SUVs comes in a hybrid option.
According to the IIHS the Toyota Highlander offered the second best rollover protection of all 12 SUVs tested, but was the agency’s overall top safety pick for offering the highest level of occupant safety. Thus, not only is the Toyota Highlander hybrid a great pick for safety, it’s a great pick for fuel economy in its class.
