The Toyota Highlander stands out as a crossover SUV in the automotive industry by offering a unique combination of comfort, safety features, and excellent value, attracting consumers in its segment.

One key feature that sets it apart is its efficient use of space. It provides ample legroom for the driver and comfortable seating for passengers, making it a family-friendly choice.

Another standout feature is its three rows of seating, accommodating up to eight passengers comfortably. While the third row may be a bit tight for adults, it is perfect for children.

The Highlander lineup includes six models – LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE, Limited, and Limited Platinum, each offering distinct features. For example, the LE Plus model comes with a V6 engine (optional on the LE), a power liftgate, and tri-zone automatic climate control.

There are three engine options available for the Highlander – a 2.7-liter I-4 with 185 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, a 3.5-liter V-6 with 295 hp and 263 lb-ft of torque. All engine choices come with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Both the base four-cylinder engine and the V-6 are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, enhancing road performance.

Despite a 2017 refresh, the Highlander maintains a modern look and continues to impress with its performance. With a top speed of 115 mph, 295 hp, and acceleration from 0-60 mph in just 7.0 seconds, the Highlander stands out in the family-friendly SUV category.
