There are a lot of options when you are looking to get behind the wheel of a Highlander. You can start with the base L trim or you can add features and luxury by picking the LE, XLE, XSE, Limited, or the top Platinum trim. Additionally, four of those trims are also available with a hybrid drivetrain. If a hybrid three-row SUV is what you want, then opt for the hybrid versions of the LE, XLE, Limited, or Platinum.
With three rows of seating, all Highlander models can seat up to 8 people depending on options. You can also get the Highlander outfitted with second-row captain’s chairs. This increases the luxury of the second row but reduces the overall seating capacity by one bringing you down to a still impressive seating capacity of 7 passengers.
Under the hood, the Highlander is equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine standard that can give you 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque while also giving you up to 21-city mpg and 29-highway mpg. The hybrid drivetrain option uses a 2.5-liter engine and an electric motor for a net horsepower rating of 243 and up to 36-city and 35-highway mpg.
When it comes to features, you get Toyota Safety Sense standard which includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, radar cruise control, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, and more! Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, and Alexa also all come standard. If you are looking to add AWD to your three-row SUV, then you’ll be pleased to learn that AWD is an option on every trim level including the hybrid options.
