Interior and exterior design
Highlander measures 4950mm long and is fitted with striking 20-inch alloy wheels, helping create an urban SUV look that is sleek, dynamic and sophisticated, matched with power, durability and rugged appeal of a versatile AWD vehicle.
The interior offers the practicality, durability and space-on-demand in a comfortable, premium-quality environment. This is an authentic seven-seater: a 180mm sliding range for the second row seats ensures spacious third row accommodation for two adults and easy access.
Interior equipment includes a multimedia system, satellite navigation, head-up display, wireless phone charging, smartphone connection via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, ventilated front sets and a digital rear-view mirror (only available with Premium pack) that provides a wide image unobscured by rear passengers or headrests. Details of UK specifications and pricing will be announced nearer the time of launch.
A kick-sensor (only available with Premium pack) allows hands-free access to the 658-litre luggage area. There's also underfloor storage space, whilst fully flat-folding the second and third row seats can bring the load capacity up to 1,909 litres.
Powertrain and driving dynamics
Highlander's fourth generation self-charging hybrid powertrain features a 2.5-litre petrol engine with front and rear electric motors.
Total system power is 241bhp and WLTP combined cycle CO2 emissions are 146g/km with 42.8mpg fuel consumption*. This gives the Hybrid Highlander the best balance of power and CO2 emissions in its segment.
The Highlander is equipped with the latest Toyota Safety Sense package of active safety and driver assistance systems. These include a Pre-Collision System with active steer assist, to provide further collision avoidance support. The Pre-Collision System detects pedestrians in the vehicle's path by both day and night, and bicycle riders in daylight. Other features include a full-range Adaptive Cruise Control with Road Sign Assist, Lane Departure Alert and Lane Tracing Assist, and Automatic High Beam.
