The Toyota Highlander isn’t the oldest name in Toyota crossovers, but it is one of the most important right now. While compact and mid-size crossovers are selling incredibly well, not many in those classes offer the kind of seating that the 2021 Toyota Highlander offers. With three rows of seating, the Highlander might be just the right crossover for many buyers.
Even if you don’t need to use every row to seat all your children or other regular passengers, the 2021 Toyota Highlander is an excellent solution to modern driving. The cargo space is spectacular and the whole vehicle looks sleek and exciting. But looks don’t matter next to specific features, so review the table below to understand what you might find available on the 2021 Toyota Highlander by trim level.
|L||Five USB Ports||Smart Key System with Push Button Start|
|LE (Hybrid Included)||LED Fog Lights||Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert|
|XLE (Hybrid Included)||Qi-Compatible Wireless Charging||SofTex®-Trimmed Front- and Second-Row Seats|
|XSE||Twin-Tip Exhaust||20-Inch Machined-Face Alloy Wheels|
|Limited (Hybrid Included)||JBL® with Clari-Fi with 11 Speakers and 1200-Watt Amplifier||Leather-Trimmed Seats with Heated and Ventilated Front Seats|
|Platinum (Hybrid Included)||Power Panoramic-View Moonroof with Sunshade||Bird’s Eye View Camera with Dynamic Gridlines|
There is no shortage of hybrid trims of the 2021 Toyota Highlander. Budget-minded Highlander buyers should feel comfortable in the L, LE, or LE Hybrid. The LE and LE Hybrid feature added safety equipment, which will probably draw in more parents with young kids. The XSE stands as a middle trim of sorts, but it also features a boosted sense of sportiness and visual style.
On the more premium end of the spectrum, the Platinum has the most possible features, but some might stick with the Limited to cut the price down a bit and still keep many of the best features.
