2021 Toyota Highlander Review

There is always more to you than meets the eye. The same can be said about the all-new redesigned 2021 Toyota Highlander. From its striking fluid exterior styling to its comfort and handling and its all host of intuitive technology, the Highlander goes deeper than your standard SUV. Couple that with gas options that offer extraordinary fuel efficiency, power, and safety features, we are sure you will agree that there is nothing on the road quite like the new Highlander.
Its sophisticated shape and powerful stance create a striking silhouette and those modern lines are perfectly complimented with the expanded fender flares. The available 20-inch alloy wheels and a dynamic new grille along with the available platinum trim and the premium LED headlamps to complete the perfect picture.
All these design features are not just for the show. The Highlander’s highly functional design promises improved aerodynamic efficiency, reducing wind noise, while enhancing the vehicle’s stability.
As stunning as the outside is of the Highlander, it’s what is the inside that will truly impress you. You feel the premium refined style that elevates every ride.
The Highlander offers modern luxury touches such as soft-padded surfaces, and impressive stitching. The available ambient interior LED lighting and easy-to-use steering wheel controls add to the overall smooth driving experience.
The spacious cabin comfortably seats up to 7 or 8 passengers, and with available heated leather seats and the sound damping and sound-proofing materials that are optimized throughout the entire car to minimize noise.
When it comes to technology, the latest Highlander has got a 12.3-inch display screen, a 7-inch multi-information display, and an available heads-up display. Couple that with the premium 12-speaker JBL audio system, wireless charging, connected services, and many more!
The powertrains in the new Highlander are available in two variants that deliver horsepower, torque, outstanding fuel efficiency, and exceptional driving responsiveness and handling.
Couple that with the multi-terrain selection, it allows you to maximize traction when driving through inclement weather conditions through Canada.
With performance, also comes power with two engines to choose from – 3.5-litre V6 that pumps out a smooth 295 horsepower and a fuel shipping 2.5- litre with a net 243 horsepower.
The new Highlander also features impressive throwing capabilities that can tow 5,000 pounds. Combined with industry-leading features like Dynamic Torque Vectoring which is an all-wheel-drive capability system in the Highlander.
Beautiful on the outside, beautiful on the inside, just like you.

Safety

Standard Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

At your service. Highlander’s Blind Spot Monitor works to heighten your awareness on the road, alerting you to the presence of vehicles that have entered your blind spot on either side. While Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps you backup more confidently, warning you of approaching vehicles that may cross your path. Standard on Highlander LE grades and above.

Next level safety. Working in tandem with the ICS system, RCTB not only warns you of approaching cross traffic when backing up but will automatically apply the brakes if the sensors determine that a collision is imminent. Standard on Limited and Platinum models.

Bird’s Eye View Camera and Digital Rear-view Mirror

There is more to see in the 2021 Highlander. Available on Platinum, the Bird’s Eye View Camera gives you a live, rotating, 360° view of your surroundings when parked. While the Digital Rear-view Mirror gives you a wider view of what is behind you – even if your line-of-sight is blocked.
