It’s a test in itself to navigate the wide world of crossover SUVs out there. Even among Toyota models alone, there are more than six to choose from. The starting point of a lot of shoppers is rightfully the 2021 Toyota Highlander because it sits about as close to the middle of the lineup as it can.
A sleek, modern, and adaptive crossover, the 2021 Toyota Highlander offers three rows of seats, quality Toyota construction, and a lengthy list of technology features. Safety doesn’t take a back seat, with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5+ standard on the model. There are even hybrid powertrain versions of many of the existing Highlander trims. Still, nothing is more convincing than a list of available features and specifications like those seen in the chart below.
|3.5L V6 Engine||12.3-Inch Touchscreen||Front and Rear Parking Assist with Automatic Braking|

The 2021 Toyota Highlander already spots the highways and side streets all over the nation, and it’s not likely to go away any time soon. Even if you don’t think you will ever need three rows of seats, it might be the right crossover for you. The extra cargo space is excellent, and the stylish design makes it look more like a fun crossover than a people carrier. The engine is strong for the size of the vehicle, and those who would rather trade that strength for fuel efficiency can do so by selecting the 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
