Hybrid SUVs may have been unfathomable in the days of yore, but Toyota is and has always been an innovator. With that being said, Toyota continues to push forward with what an SUV can do. The 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a shining example of how drivers can have the best of both worlds. Efficiency is the name of the game in any hybrid, and with the Highlander Hybrid lineup, you’ll find it. The Highlander Hybrid is available in four trims: Hybrid LE, Hybrid XLE, Hybrid Limited, and Hybrid Platinum. The base fuel economy is 35 city, 35 highway, and 35 combined miles per gallon, so you might find yourself stopping for a fuel refill a lot less frequently.
This kind of fuel economy does not come at the expense of power, as the hybrid powertrain nets 243 horsepower when the electric motor and the combustion engine are working together. You and the family can enjoy seating for up to eight people, plus a maximum cargo capacity of 84.3 cubic feet and a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
A hybrid is a forward-thinking vehicle, and you’ll find that kind of approach with the standard and available technology features as well.
You’ll find a standard eight-inch touchscreen that can host Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, and Amazon Alexa functionality at your fingertips. A three-month free trial of SiriusXM satellite radio is also included, and four USB ports making charging your devices easier. You can also take advantage of the Bluetooth® hands-free calling and messaging, not to mention wireless music streaming. That system can be upgraded in the Limited trim (optional) and Platinum trim (standard) to the Premium Audio with Dynamic Navigation system, which also includes an 11-speaker JBL® sound system.
Safety is also considered here, as the Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5+ system comes standard. This suite of smart safety and driver-assistance features includes the Pre-Collision System with Low-Light Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Lane Tracing Assist, Road Sign Assist, and Automatic High Beams.
