2019 Toyota Highlander
March 26 2019, Western Toyota
The Toyota Highlander has been one of the most popular and best-selling mid-size sport utility vehicles for years now. Despite its many changes over the years, the Highlander remains close to the core values of safety, dependability, and comfort that have always defined it.
The new Toyota Highlander offers space for the entire family, the latest safety and connectivity features, and one of the best resale values in its segment. It’s also the only mid-size SUV in its class to offer a hybrid engine. Let’s take a closer look at the 2019 Toyota Highlander.
Safety First in the 2019 Toyota Highlander
The 2019 Toyota Highlander received a few upgrades this year, namely a revised grille, new LED headlights, and an improved SE model that adds 19-inch wheels and a black grill. That said, these changes do not compromise the characteristics that have made the Highlander so popular among families in Newfoundland.
For starters, you get a wide range of advanced safety features in the 2019 Toyota Highlander. These come in the form of Toyota Safety Sense P, a group of active safety technologies that stand out by offering a Pre-Collision System with pedestrian detection, Lane Departure Alert with steering assist, Automatic high beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control at no extra charge. That’s right, every 2019 Toyota Highlander comes with these features.
Starting at just over $35,000 for a front-wheel-drive model, or a few thousand dollars more for an all-wheel-drive variant, the 2019 Toyota Highlander is incredibly comfortable both in the city and on the highway. It offers supple suspension and the cabin filters out any road or city noises.
On the other hand, the 2019 Highlander is also composed and makes the driver feel like he or she is in complete control; that’s part of the midsize SUV’s charm. It’s fun to drive while being refined, that’s why we say that it’s the Highlander’s overall balance that truly allows it to shine.
Get Both Power and Fuel Economy
The 2019 Toyota Highlander comes with a 3.5-litre V6 engine that delivers 295 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired to an 8-speed automatic, and it allows the new Highlander to tow up to 2,268 kilograms.
Now, you can also go with a hybrid version of the Highlander. There aren’t many hybrid midsize SUVs in this segment, so buyers that want a lot of interior space without the gas bill that comes with it will want to check it out. The Highlander Hybrid features an average fuel economy rating of about 8.5 litres per 100 kilometres in combined city and highway driving.
