Easy driving at night
There are multiple features that make driving at night or in low-light conditions much easier. The Road Sign Assist uses cameras to help read signs and displays them on to the Multi-information display (MID) for the driver to be alert. Another technology that the 2021 Highlander contributes to making night driving easier is the Automatic High Beams, which adjusts the lights when the vehicle is travelling above 25 mph.
As for driving on different terrains, the Highlander comes inbuilt with different driving modes that include Snow Mode, Drive Mode, and Multi-Terrain Mode, which takes care of rock, sand, and mud terrains. Also, one must not hesitate driving through slopes as the car features Hill Start Assist Control and Downhill Assist Control (DAC).
