Style and Power
The Toyota Highlander is a 3-row midsize SUV that is designed to stand out from the rest. The Highlander offers a sleek and edgy appearance with the power to also win you over. The car has a 3.5-liter, V6 engine 295 horsepower with an all-wheel drive option that sends power to the wheel with the most grip due to side-to-side torque vectoring. If you want to be more fuel conscious, there is also the Hybrid version of the Highlander which has a 4-cylinder engine with the options of including all-wheel drive that drives the rear or front wheels. The hybrid engine still offers a whopping 243 horsepower and uses continuous variable transmission.
Safety is Key
The Toyota Highlander comes in five different trims to choose from, the Base L models, LE, XLE, Limited, and Platinum versions, all which include the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 system. This system includes forward-collision warnings, pedestrian detection, automatic energy breaking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and lane tracing assistant. If you choose to upgrade, there are add-ons to the safety system that include blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alerts, and front/rear parking assistant. Being a family car, safety is always a major factor that you should pay attention to and put on the top of your list.

Whether you need a lot of seats or cargo space, this car has it all.If you don’t need all eight seats, you can fold the last row and have a total of 48 cubic feet of cargo room instead of just 16 cubic feet. The 2020 Highlander is slightly larger than its predecessors, to make more room between the rows and cargo room.
The new 2021 Highlander also features many new technological upgrades to look forward to. There is an 8” touchscreen that includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon’s Alexa system integration with five USB ports. It also has an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat, blind-spot monitoring, enhanced audio with HD radio, and LED fog lights.
