Top 3 Toyota Accessories for Winter Driving

All-weather floor mats are our top winter-ready accessory. Not only are they much easier to clean than traditional carpeted floor mats, but they are also waterproof which keeps your car interiors free from water damage and salt stains. This keeps everything looking nice while you own the car and helps to retain value for when it comes time to sell or trade-in.

Remote Start

Select Toyota models come standard with remote start. But, if yours didn’t it makes a fantastic upgrade for cold-weather driving. With just the touch of a button, your remote start-equipped vehicle can warm up before you climb inside, so you are ready to go – no ice scraping or waiting for the heater required. Installation is easy and can be performed by your local Toyota service center.

Roof Rack

If you or someone you know loves outdoor winter activities like skiing or snowboarding, a roof rack could be the perfect addition to their Toyota crossover or truck. A roof rack makes it easy to haul larger items like sporting equipment to outdoor destinations, even when the car is packed with friends and family who want to come along for the trip.
