Carefully-curated features appeal to the burgeoning Millennial demographic currently bounding onto the auto-industry scene.
Engineering their newest line of vehicles to meet the needs of Millennials, who've now grown to become the largest generation in the U.S., Toyota is carefully taking into account factors such as safety mechanisms, personalization features, and advanced technology. Consumer lifestyle also plays a major role in the car-buying habits of this up-and-coming age group currently bounding onto the auto-industry scene along with environmental friendliness and cost effectiveness.
The Highlander is listed among a number of the auto manufacturer's new vehicles which offer as standard the Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) bundle of integrated safety systems.
