Highlander, Toyota’s largest hybrid SUV, is to go on sale in the UK and Western Europe for the first time, from early 2021.
It will be offered exclusively with a full hybrid powertrain and will extend Toyota’s hybrid SUV line-up in the region, joining the established D-segment RAV4 and C-segment C-HR and the new B-segment Yaris Cross that will also be introduced next year.
Toyota has an unmatched 23 years’ experience in developing hybrid technology, during which time it has produced nine models, gained 15 million customers and progressed to a fourth generation of self-charging hybrid electric powertrains. It has combined this with its reputation for quality, durability and reliability and its strong SUV heritage to create the new Highlander.
Built on Toyota’s GA-K platform, Highlander brings together the Toyota SUV qualities of comfort, drivability and safety with a fuel and emissions-efficient hybrid powertrain, intelligent, all-wheel drive, a flexible interior and a two-tonne towing capacity.
Design and packaging: Highlander measures 4,950mm long and is fitted with striking 20-inch alloy wheels, helping create an urban SUV look that is sleek, dynamic and sophisticated, matched with the power, durability and rugged appeal of a versatile AWD vehicle.
The interior offers the practicality, durability and space-on-demand in a comfortable, premium-quality environment. This is an authentic seven-seater: a 180mm sliding range for the second row seats ensures spacious third row accommodation for two adults and easy access.
