Toyota Highlander Standard Equipment Reviews

Drivers who choose the 2019 Toyota Highlander will enjoy tons of compelling and easy-to-use standard features. Here’s what some of the experts noted in their reviews:

  • For the trusted reviewers at the U.S. News, the most exciting elements were the "straightforward infotainment system," the "appealing set of entertainment features and a generous amount of safety equipment."
  • Kelley Blue Book was especially impressed with the base trim, which includes features like "keyless entry, a total of five USB ports, the Entune infotainment system with 6.1-inch touch screen, and the Toyota Safety Sense suite of safety features."

Toyota Highlander XLE Reviews

Many reviewers take the time to highlight the trims which they feel provide the most value for drivers. With a standard V6 engine and a wide variety of upscale amenities, the mid-range Toyota Highlander XLE earned tons of praise:

  • Edmunds.com was abundantly clear when they wrote that "The XLE is our pick." They focused on its "desirable extras, including blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and keyless entry and ignition."
  • For Kelley Blue Book, the XLE trim level stood out with cabin and tech upgrades like the "leather interior, navigation, moonroof, power-adjustable passenger seat, the Easy Speak intercom system, and auto-dimming rearview mirror."

Toyota Highlander Hybrid Reviews

With up to 30 mpg city and 28 mpg highway*, it isn’t hard to see why the 2019 Toyota Highlander reviews have been so positive! Its 305-hp V6 engine is just icing on the cake! Here’s what the experts noticed:

  • The reviewers at Edmunds.com highlighted the Highlander Hybrid for its "quiet and compliant ride." Of course, they also noticed that it offers "impressive fuel-economy for a three-row crossover."
  • For the editors at the U.S. News, there’s no midsize SUV that can outperform the Highlander Hybrid. They’ve ranked it as the #1 option in the segment because it delivers "class-leading fuel economy," a "strong powertrain," an "upmarket cabin," and "lots of standard safety features."

Highlander AWD: Toyota Highlander In Snow Reviews

Although %%target_city_2%% and %%target_city_4%% drivers may not have to deal with snow very often, everyone wants to be assured that their SUV will perform well under less-than-ideal conditions. The experts were clear--you can always count on the Highlander to get you from A to B.

  • Edmunds.com was quick to note that the 8-inch ground clearance "exceeds that of most in the segment." Since "all-wheel drive versions are available and include both hill descent control and an electronically lockable differential,” it’s a good choice for the driver who needs a dependable SUV.
  • U.S. News calls the Highlander "sure-footed and stable". Kelley Blue Book celebrated its "high seating position," while noting it offers a "good steering feel, a good turning radius, and a comfortable yet controlled ride."
