Interior Features and Performance of the 2018 Toyota Highlander

Those who want a vehicle with options have found the right offering in the 2018 Toyota Highlander. There are five trim levels, and three additional hybrid grades on the Toyota Highlander. On the five traditional trims, there are two engine options, a 2.7L four-cylinder, and a 3.5L V6. The standard 2.7L engine provides 185 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, while the 3.5L V6 brings the power up to 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. When the 2018 Toyota Highlander is equipped with the 3.5L V6, you don't just get 21 miles per gallon in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. You'll also be able to a trailer that weighs up to 5,000 pounds.

While it is important that your vehicle has high performance, you also want to make sure that the interior has all of the features that you want and need. All trim levels of the 2018 Toyota Highlander come equipped with Entune® Audio and Bluetooth® wireless technology, which allows you to stay connected without taking your eyes off of the road. There are also two information displays standard on all trim levels. With the Entune system, you'll have access to the 6.1-inch touchscreen on the base LE trim or an 8-inch touchscreen display on the other offerings. Every trim level has a 4.2-inch color LCD information display that will keep you up to date on the fuel economy, odometer, average speed and much more.

It is quite a perk to have access to all of those features, but the really exciting aspect of the 2018 Toyota Highlander is the spacious interior that can seat up to eight people. Whether you need space for children or full-grown adults, there is plenty of room in the Toyota Highlander. In the third row, there is 27.7 inches of leg room, with 38.4 inches in the middle and 44.2 inches in the front. With that many people in the vehicle, it is likely that they'll have cargo, and the 2018 Highlander can more than handle it, with 13.8 cubic feet of volume behind the third row, and a total cargo volume of 83.7 cubic feet when the second and third rows are folded down.
