Toyota is one of America’s most reliable brands, and the Highlander combines that with fantastic versatility. Here’s why you should consider the new 2019 Highlander as you search for your next SUV.

Exceptional Exterior

The 2019 Toyota Highlander’s dynamic design begins in front with its expressive front fascia and headlights. The unique grille makes a bold first impression, and the SE adds a glossy-black headlight housing. The Highlander has an athletic stance with alloy wheels, heated fold-down mirrors, and a height-adjustable power liftgate. A flip-up rear hatch window makes it easy to toss in extra gear. Brilliant LED taillights give you added visibility, setting the Highlander apart in a crowded SUV market. 

An Admirable Interior

The interior of the 2019 Toyota Highlander is just as versatile as it is stylish. Everything is within easy reach, including the huge roll-top center console with a convenient removable utility tray. The Highlander features seating for up to eight people, so you can take the whole family or the whole team on the road.

Another option most Highlanders enjoy: available second-row captain’s chairs. Split the seats (60/40) down for an incredible array of cargo- and people-carrying configurations. 

Tons of Technology

Every 2019 Toyota Highlander comes with a high-resolution touchscreen that puts you in touch with the world. With the Multimedia Bundle, the Highlander takes tech to the next level. It features voice-activated navigation, a suite of apps, Bluetooth connectivity, and SiriusXM satellite radio capability. You can navigate your technology through the touchscreen or the leather-wrapped, 3-spoke steering wheel with controls for audio, Bluetooth, hands-free phone, and the voice-controlled Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. 

And let’s not forget about the rear entertainment system or the available Driver Easy Speak system, which picks up the driver’s voice and transfers it back to the third-row passengers.
