2019 Toyota Highlander Review and FeaturesNov 28th, 2018
The 2019 Toyota Highlander was designed with every member of your family in mind. From the driver up front to the little passengers in the back, every trip was made to be as enjoyable as possible. It doesn’t matter if you choose gas or hybrid, the 2019 Highlander is dependable, spacious and fuel efficient, and is ready to take you on your next adventure.
The 2019 Toyota Highlander doesn’t look like your average family hauler. In fact, Toyota designed it to look just the opposite. With an aggressive wide rear stance and edgy front grille, this seven-passenger SUV makes a statement about what a family ride should look like. The interior is refined with high-quality materials and soft accents. Searching for something sportier? The Highlander SE AWD brings flair and upgrades to the table.
The SE and Limited models have room for seven passengers, but if that’s not enough the Highlander can be made to seat eight. When you fold all teose seats down, you also get 2,300 litres of space. That means you can literally transport whatever you need in the back — hockey bags, groceries, work supplies, etc.
The Highlander has an impressive powertrain that delivers big power without sacrificing fuel economy. The 3.5-liter V6 engine delivers 295 hp, with the hybrid system putting out a net power of 306 hp. Meanwhile, the MacPherson strut suspension up front with a double-wishbone type suspension in the rear gives you tight handling and a soft, quiet ride designed with long road trips in mind.
The 2019 Highlander can tow up to 5,000 lb. while the Highlander Hybrid can tow approx 3,500 lbs. That way you can pull a trailer or boat with ease. The Highlander is also equipped with an available Dynamic
Torque-Control AWD system that gives you maximum control on snowy, icy and slushy roads.
The Highlander Hybrid features an available Electronic On-Demand AWD-i, which automatically switches to all-wheel-drive, utilizing an additional motor to drive the rear wheels when extra traction is needed.
The 2019 Highlander appeals to every member of your family. The drive is responsive and tight. The look is trendy while still managing to fit up to eight people in the back. Standard features for the LE AWD include:
- 295-hp, 3.5L, 6-cylinder Direct Injection Engine, and 8-speed Automatic Transmission
- 6-speaker, 6.1” Touchscreen Audio with Bluetooth®, Backup Camera, and Siri® Eyes-Free
- Dual Zone Climate Control
- Seating for 8 with Plush Fabric Front Captain’s Chairs and 60/40 Split 2nd and 3rd Row Bench Seats
- All-Wheel Drive with Active Torque Control, Hill-start Assist Control, and Downhill Assist Control
- Toyota Safety SenseTM P and Available Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
