The dog days of summer are here, but Toyota makes it easy to stay cool with modern conveniences. Toyota goes beyond just really cold air conditioning—it has created models that intelligently manage the sweltering heat of the season. Here are some of our favorite standard and available features that make Toyota models an oasis all summer long.*
Toyota passengers can enjoy multi-zone automatic climate control systems with intuitive air temperature sensors and air filters. The multi-zone systems offer separate temperature and airflow settings for the driver and passengers. The temperature sensors help the system to know when the desired cabin temperature has been reached and automatically reduce airflow to maintain that temperature instead of continuing to blast cold air.
One-Touch Panoramic Power Moonroof
There's nothing more refreshing on a hot day than opening all the windows and the moonroof and feeling the breeze blow through your hair. Toyota models really make it a breeze with one-touch panoramic power moonroofs. With the single press of a button, the huge moonroof opens and you can breathe again.
Some Toyota models offer perforated seats that can provide quick personal ventilation for passengers in the front seats. The perforations in the seat material wick air away from the occupants, quickly cooling to a comfortable temperature.
In the unstoppable Toyota Land Cruiser, passengers can keep beverage and food items ice-cold, too. The insulated electronic cooler box in the rear cargo area can hold as much as four full-sized beverage bottles. Simply press the "Cool Box" button and the box will use airflow from the air conditioning system to cool the contents.
Thanks to the latest in connectivity, Toyota drivers can air condition the cabin before they even open the car door. Simply download the Toyota Entune™ app on a compatible smartphone and sync the app to your vehicle. The app can be used for many remote control functions like locking and unlocking doors or starting the engine (with Remote Connect). Set the climate controls to the desired setting when you turn off the car. Use the app to start the car later, and the climate controls kick on automatically, bringing the cabin to a comfortable temperature.
