What the Critics Say

The Highlander’s standard suite of accident avoidance tech is a big reason to consider this family crossover, especially if you don’t have the money for a range-topping model. Infotainment tech is pleasantly easy to use.” — Edmunds
The comfortable front- and 2nd-row seats are great for long drives, and little ones in the third row will be satisfied, although adults should skip it. The dash-width shelf up front is perfect for your wallet, smartphone, keys or whatever else, and the huge center console bin can easily swallow anything too big for the shelf.” — Kelley Blue Book

Toyota Highlander Hybrid Features

2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Eco Mode

Hybrid Efficiency

Stretching your fuel budget has never been easier thanks to the Toyota Highlander. Dedicated ECO and EV drive mode buttons give you the ability to control drive settings. In ECO Mode, the Highlander Hybrid adjusts throttle response to help with fuel economy and can also help when you’re slowly accelerating on low-traction surfaces such as snow or ice. EV Mode uses only the electric motor for situations where you’re driving at low speeds for short distances, such as in a parking garage. An energy monitor display and hybrid system power meter provide real-time information to the driver.

Comfortable Interior

With seating for up to 8, the interior of the Highlander Hybrid offers a spacious environment to relax and unwind. Optional perforated heated and ventilated leather-trimmed front seats help make those chilly mornings or hot afternoons much more bearable. An available panoramic sunroof allows you to fill the cabin with natural lighting and fresh air. The optional rear-seat Blu-ray Disc™ entertainment system is sure to be a hit for back seat passengers on extended road trips. Experience an available Entune™ Premium JBL® Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite, which delivers exceptional acoustic clarity while giving you access to a variety of useful apps.
