With the Hybrid signing up with the Prius in the line-up, Toyota says it is now the very first automotive maker to use a full gasoline/electric hybrid in both the intermediate SUV and also mid-size auto segments. The Highlander Crossbreed is powered by a new variation of Toyota's Crossbreed Harmony Drive powertrain, specially-tweaked for a midsize SUV. It includes an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT) and also on-demand electronic four-wheel-drive. The gas engine functions seamlessly with a high-torque electrical drive motor-generator that establishes a peak system output comparable to 268 hp, but with half the gas usage of a conventionally-powered automobile.

The Highlander is a "full crossbreed", implying that it can operate in gas or electrical settings, along with a combination of both. Under normal conditions, the Hybrid operates in front-wheel-drive setting, as well as immediately changes to 4WD when added grip is required. The Synergy Drive powertrain powers the front wheels, while an electric motor drives the back ones.

Attributes on the gasoline-only Highlander include CD/cassette player with six speakers, a/c, towel seats, 60/40 split rear bench, power locks with keyless entrance, power windows, floor mats, freight cover, cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, warmed mirrors, variable intermittent wipers, as well as haze lamps. The seven-passenger design adds a third-row bench seat with fold-down seatback. Offered options are a Natural leather Bundle, as well as a Limited Bundle that includes a lengthy checklist of functions, including natural leather interior, 17-inch wheels, side as well as drape air bags as well as power sunroof.

The five-passenger Hybrid includes multi-information display screen, LED taillamps and also 17-inch wheels.

The seven-passenger Hybrid comes only in Limited trim, as well as includes updated CD/cassette with 8 speakers as well as wheel-mounted controls, automatic environment control, complementary rear heating system, heated leather seats, outside temperature scale, leather-wrapped wheel, integrated garage door opener, side and also curtain air bags, anti-theft system, power sunroof as well as light control system.

All designs offer a pleasant trip, however the seven-passenger variation is that in name only; the 3rd row of seats is confined and ideal primarily for smaller children. Unless you're hauling 7 guests regularly, the five-passenger offers more cargo area without folding down an additional row of seats.

The Hybrid is present-day innovation, with a horse power boost as well as better fuel economy compared to its gasoline-only double, yet a $6,350 costs in base form and also $6,415 in Restricted trim will certainly take a while to repay at the gas pumps, despite climbing gas rates; get this one to conserve the earth, not necessarily your budget.
