Interior Design

Driver-Focused Cabin

Slipping into the driver’s seat of the Highlander Hybrid automatically puts you in control, with a litany of elements focused your way, from the power adjustable driver’s seat, to the touchscreen and console controls. It’s all easy on the eyes, too, with luxury touches across the cabin.

Passenger Seating

You can seat up to eight in total in the Hybrid Highlander, perfect for those weekend getaways, or cross-country road trips. This is all thanks to the 2nd row bench seats, and big rear doors that allow for easy entry/exit to the third-row. Better yet, three-zone climate control ensures there won’t be any fighting over the temperature.

Spacious Cargo Area
