2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Release Date Photos

As it nears the end of its third generation, the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid remains one of the few choices to transport eight people using hybrid power. Refinement and quietness are still hallmarks, although some of the latest tech features are clearly unavailable.

Engine

As before, the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid combines a V6 engine and electric motor to generates 306 net horsepower. A 167-hp motor/generator to power the front wheels and a second 68-hp electric motor fitted to the rear axle, through an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission with sequential shift mode. The engine is direct injection and makes 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque. With utilizing the all-wheel-drive system, the Highlander Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated 29 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 28 combined.

Standard & Optional Equipment

The 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a seven or eight passengers SUV available in LE, XLE, Limited and Limited Platinum trim levels. Standard equipment for the base LE trim include 18-inch wheels, a windshield wiper de-icer, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure intervention, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry and ignition, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, Bluetooth, a 6.1-inch touchscreen and a six-speaker sound system.

The XLE trim adds foglights, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert systems, a sunroof, a height-adjustable power liftgate, heated power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery, tri-zone climate control, second-row sunshades, upgraded interior materials, a second-row household-style power outlet, an 8.1-inch touchscreen, satellite and HD radio, and a navigation system.

The Limited trim adds 19-inch wheels, LED running lights, rear parking sensors, heated and ventilated front seats with perforated leather, driver-seat memory functions, second-row captain’s chairs, a rear cargo cover, and a 12-speaker JBL sound system. The Limited Platinum gets you a panoramic sunroof, automatic wipers, front parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, heated rear outboard seats, and a heated steering wheel.

The XLE and the Limited can be equipped with a rear-seat entertainment system.

Interior

The 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid cabin is refined and quiet, with acoustic glass and floor insulation. Almost luxurious. The dashboard is flat and rich. The lines and textures mostly mix well, although they can get busy, which makes the cabin feel less calm than it might. The instrument panel has a light touch of truck in it, in the SE model, which goes away as soon as the premium touchscreen comes. Bless those big knobs on the climate control. And big gauges. And no less than five USB ports, and many cubbies, plus an opening storage box on the dash.

The 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid long wheelbase allows good room inside, but that’s not quite long enough for an adult-sized third row. Most models have a sliding second-row bench that splits 60/40 and seats three, to make eight passengers; but the Limiteds offer captain’s chairs, or seven passengers.

The front seats are good, but only the Limited model gets power adjustment; it’s an option with the others. Another option is cooled seats, if you don’t mind feeling hardware through the seat. The so-counted three-seat third row is very small, with little headroom or legroom, kids only. However it is possible for two adults to reach the seats and fit into them. But the third row folds flat, so if you don’t need the space for children, there’s 42.3 cubic feet behind the second row; and with that row folded it’s 84 cubic feet behind the front row, enough room for bunk beds.
