December 7th, 2018 by

When you hit the road with the family, it can be… challenging. Trying to ensure you have everything you need, that everyone is entertained, and that you’re making good time and staying safe is a lot to juggle. Luckily, our new Toyotas come equipped with family-friendly features that up the efficiency, safety, and entertainment value of your drive time whether you’re hitting the highway or taking the back roads.  Check out what’s available to you for road trips when you get behind the wheel of an Orlando Toyota.

Find out which new Toyota features can make or break a road trip

#1: Rear seat entertainment system. If you’re going to be hitting the highway, you definitely want a way to keep the kids entertained in the back that doesn’t involve endless streaming data. Many of our new Toyotas, like the Toyota Highlander and Toyota Land Cruiser, come with rear-seat entertainment systems to allay the boredom that’s sure to settle in. You can choose between DVD and Blu-Ray systems that come with screens up to 11 inches, and you can also put wireless headphones to use so you don’t have to listen to Moana for the 405th time.

#2: Safety Connect Services. Safety Connect Services can give you extra peace of mind when you’re away from home. This comprehensive safety suite includes features like Stolen Vehicle Locator, Emergency Assistance, Roadside Assistance, and Automatic Collision Notification. You’re in good hands even if you’re not in your hometown.

#3: Captain’s chairs in the second row. SUVs are amazing – they give you tons of passenger AND cargo space to work with when you’re out on the road. However, have you ever worked with captain’s chairs in the second row? It lends a whole new meaning to versatility. If you have two comfortable captain’s chairs (which also recline), you basically have a small pathway to the third row of seats, which means it’s a whole lot easier to climb into the back.

#4: All-wheel drive. All-wheel drive can really be handy when the road is wet (and we see plenty of rain here in Central Florida). However, it also comes in handy when you’re driving in snow or on ice. Having a vehicle with all-wheel drive options, like the Orlando Toyota Highlander, Toyota4Runner, etc.) gives you the upper hand when it comes to unpredictable winter weather.

#5: Driver Easy Speak. Sick of yelling to the back of your SUV or van? Look for a ride – like the Orlando Toyota Sienna – with Driver Easy Speak. With the touch of a button your voice is amplified through the cabin so you don’t even have to turn around to talk to the third row and tell them to stop fighting.

#6: Extra USB ports. Let’s face it – long road trips mean a need for devices. And if someone is set on playing Words with Friends the whole way, they’re going to need a charge. That’s why it’s handy to have extra USB ports for charging in the car (just don’t forget your charging cords!). Our new Toyotas offer plenty of charging ports for the family.
