No medium or large Toyota SUV stands out in a crowd the way the 2021 Highlander does. This model makes itself distinct thanks to a few body lines that have a big effect on the look of the vehicle. The swoop that runs from the middle of the front doors and swerves around the back tires makes the Highlander look longer, wider, and more stable than other vehicles of a similar size.
The striking body of the Highlander is the same on each trim, but the variety of features available means every shopper should take special note of each trim level out there. Excluding hybrid powertrain trims, there are six trims. Each trim is listed on the chart below from lowest trim on the top of the list to the highest trim on the bottom of the list.

|LE||LED Fog Lights||Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert|
|XLE||Qi-Compatible Wireless Charging||SofTex®-Trimmed Front- and Second-Row Seats|

|Limited||JBL® 11-Speaker System with 1200-Watt Amplifier||Hands-Free Power Liftgate|

The 2021 Toyota Highlander is an ideal way to get introduced to the world of owning a 3-row SUV. Whether you choose a 7 or 8 seat trim, the vehicle is made for comfort and quality. The XLE trim will probably attract most shoppers since it has more than enough standard equipment and plenty of extra bells and whistles. Shoppers looking for a lot of interior technology and comfort features may be satisfied with the Limited trim, but the Platinum is the true flagship.
