Life is all about balance. The 2021 Toyota Highlander LE lives by that mantra by balancing a low starting MSRP with quality Toyota technology and safety features. The 2021 Toyota Highlander is a three-row crossover by default, and the LE is an 8-seat version of the three-row format. This makes the LE great for budget buyers who need as many seats as possible.
Although there is a Hybrid LE, this post will use specifications from the gasoline-powered LE as that version is more common. Climbing higher on the list of trims means more Highlander models with 7 seat configurations. The 2021 Toyota Highlander LE has a starting MSRP of $37,285 making it a bargain for its seating capacity. Thoroughly embracing crossover styling more than bulky SUV styling, the 2021 Toyota Highlander is an excellent choice for families, especially those who don’t want a minivan.

The 2021 Toyota Highlander LE is an ideal starting point for anyone researching the Highlander because it offers a lot of modern essentials and some fun extras without pushing the price too high. There are certainly higher trims with more fun tricks, but anyone looking for a reliable family crossover could be satisfied with the LE and nothing more. If the LE doesn’t quite cut it in terms of features, consider the XLE for more functionality, the Limited for luxury, or the Platinum for the most technologically advanced 2021 Toyota Highlander out there.
