Toyota is once again providing an update to the Toyota Highlander. The ‘three lines’ crossover XSE variant now has a more sporty appearance. Just like its predecessor, the Camry XSE, this car has a more aggressive front fascial look with completely changed griller.
A touch of sporty style is not limited there because Toyota also complements the Highlander with exclusive 20-inch alloy wheels with black accents.
2021 Toyota Highlander will use the Toyota GA-K platform and is categorized as a large European standard SUV with a length of 4,950 mm. In addition to that, the Toyota Highlander XSE has a colored lighting unit and a metal spoiler that looks luxurious.
The Highlander has four modes, Eco, Normal, Sport, and Trail. All of those modes can be used when the vehicle is running in EV mode.
Inside, Toyota did a whole new level of alteration but only limited to the trim around which is made with materials that resemble carbon fiber and leather upholstery with a combination of red and black. Toyota also complements the Highlander XSE with sporty suspension, spring, and rear stabilizer bar.
In its European specifications, the 2021 Toyota Highlander comes in a choice of black or graphite, power tailgate, USB ports at various points as well as ample storage compartments.
The car is equipped with a 12.3-inch multimedia screen with satellite navigation, a head-up display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, wireless cellphone charging, ventilated seats, and digital rearview mirror.
One thing that hasn’t changed is that the Toyota Highlander XSE still uses a 3.5-liter V6 engine that is capable of producing power up to 259hp and 356 Nm of torque combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 2021 Toyota Highlander XSE will be available this fall with two options between XLE and Limited. The price tag is rumored to around $ 42,000.
