2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE Review and Price

The Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2019 is a modern eco-friendly SUV. The front part of the car is decorated with a trapezoidal chrome radiator grille, divided into two chests. Optics of strict and even shape, available on led running lights. At the bottom of the bumper there is a plastic splitter, and on the sides there are led fog lights and wind holes. There are 4 rear-view cameras on the sides. The doors received an aerodynamic concave line.

The rear of the car is equipped with led optics. The large trunk door is equipped with sloping glass, and a spoiler is located at the top. The rear fog lights have nice chrome trim.

The Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2019 has a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The car has a power of 306 horsepower, and is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The first “hundred” SUV confidently gains in 7.4 seconds. The maximum speed is 184 km/ h, which is an excellent result for a hybrid SUV. The 4WD electric drive distributes torque to all wheels, which increases the Highlander’s dynamic performance for road terrain.

The urban driving cycle consumes 7.8 liters, and the route will take about 8.1 liters of fuel. The mixed cycle will consume 7.4 liters of gasoline per 100 km.

The salon wins with its strict attractiveness. The quality of the upholstery used exclusively leather. On the sides there are holes for air supply, on top-a clock and an airbag sensor. The climate control unit is located under the panel. Even lower is a compartment for all the little things with lighting, so finding keys or documents in the night will not be an effort.

The interior of the Toyota Highlander Hybrid 2019 is laid out with three rows of seats. The first and second rows of seats are very comfortable, which offers comfort and coziness for long trips. The third row is not very large, but it can easily accommodate children.

In the center of the dashboard flaunts a chic touch screen with an infotainment system.

There is no need to talk about the safety of Japanese cars – it is always at a height.

The hybrid Highlander provides Safety Sense technology, which includes the main safety functionality.

With regard to the use of Toyota’s in the winter, everything is good. The engine starts immediately, the battery works as it should. You can’t give a large load to the hybrid right away. Before the trip, it should be thoroughly warmed up. The fact is that recently engines are made of aluminum, which is very susceptible to temperature changes.
