Unique to Highlander XSE is a sport-tuned suspension that lets it hug the road a little tighter. Retuned shock absorbers, higher-rate springs and a rear stabilizer bar give you better handling of the road, while its lower, athletic stance shows everyone that it's ready to hit the ground running.
Enjoy an upgrade in all-wheel-drive performance. Available Dynamic Torque Vectoring All-Wheel Drive (TV-AWD) improves responsiveness and stability by sending up to 50 percent of the power to the rear and then further distributing more power to the wheel that needs it.
More miles mean more fun. Whether you're driving around town or venturing out to see what nature has to offer, Highlander Hybrid has up to an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined to give you the freedom to do both.
The epitome of power and smoothness. Highlander's advanced 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 295 hp and 263 lb.-ft. of torque. Flex some muscle with its 5000-lb. towing capacity or find yourself going farther with its EPA-estimated 23 combined mpg.
Offering you more capability when the pavement ends, Highlander features Multi-Terrain Select on All-Wheel Drive (AWD) models. Choose between four modes (MUD & SAND, ROCK & DIRT, SNOW and NORMAL) for improved traction. When activated, the system is designed to sense slippage and regulate wheelspin—helping to maximize driving performance on different surfaces.
Three distinct drive modes let you tailor Highlander's driving dynamics to match your mood. Sport Mode provides sharper acceleration, ECO Mode helps maximize fuel efficiency, and Normal Mode blends fuel economy with performance.
Highlander's bold design is hard to ignore. Its chiseled shape and contoured lines display the perfect balance of power and refinement. For XSE, an aggressive mesh front grille, blacked-out accents and lower side skirts highlight Highlander's sportier side.
Underneath XSE's unique rear bumper features Highlander's first-ever twin-tip exhaust. Chrome-plated for durability and added attention, it helps finish off the sportier rear design.
Highlander shows off more style with its 20-in. alloy wheels. Standard on XSE, Limited and Platinum, these sleek wheels add more sophistication without compromising performance.
Feel the sporty vibe of XSE every time you enter. With its available red and black leather-trimmed seats with red accent stitching across the instrument panel, you can't help but feel a little more empowered behind the wheel.
Easy to use and even more convenient. When your hands are full, Highlander's available hands-free power liftgate senses your Smart Key fob and opens automatically when you kick your foot under the rear bumper.
Amp up your entertainment with the available 12.3-in. touchscreen display. The large multimedia system puts Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility, Amazon Alexa capability, a SiriusXM® All Access 3-month trial subscription and more right in front of you, so you can get the most out of every drive.
No wires? No worries. Highlander features available Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging. Simply place your Qi-compatible device in the center console to easily charge it up.
Make every seat more comfortable. Available heated and ventilated front seats cool down or warm up on demand, while available heated second-row seats can help keep passengers warm. Simulation shown.
Brighten each day with the available panoramic moonroof with front power tilt/slide moonroof. Open it up to catch a breeze and enjoy the wide-open view, or easily find cover with a power-retractable sunshade.
Highlander's roomy interior gives you enough space to seat up to eight and provides impressive leg room, even for those in back.
When you enable available Wi-Fi Connect, you can turn your Highlander into a hotspot with 4G connectivity. This feature allows up to five devices to stay connected to your favorite apps, while five USB ports and two 12V outlets help everyone find a charge.
Experience the clear sound of Highlander's available JBL® w/Clari-Fi® audio system. With its 1200 watts, 11 speakers, surround sound and high-quality engineering, phenomenal sound is delivered to amp up every drive.
The dynamic front end of Highlander shows off its modern look. The stylish standard LED headlights provide a crisp, clean light, while available auto-leveling LED projector-beam headlights help keep light aimed down at the road for better visibility.
The next-gen active safety system, standard on every new Highlander at no additional cost.
The available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) is designed to warn you when a vehicle is in Highlander's blind spot on either side. When Highlander is placed in reverse, available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) is designed to detect certain vehicles approaching from either side. If the system senses cross traffic, it is designed to warn you with side mirror indicators and a warning tone.
Working along with the available Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) and Rear Cross-Traffic Braking (RCTB), Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking (PA w/AB) has audible and visual warnings, and in certain conditions may automatically apply the brakes when there is a possibility of contact with a stationary object or vehicle.
