The Highlander Hybrid is available in an all-wheel drive configuration only, with two trim levels: Base and Limited. It employs an advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive system, a 3.3-liter V6 gasoline engine with a high-torque electric drive motor-generator, producing 270 net horsepower and mated to an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission. The five-passenger Base trim is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning and a rearview camera monitor. The Limited trim adds 19-inch alloy wheels, a power rear liftgate, leather upholstery and heated front seats; it also includes a third row bench seat that brings total seating capacity to seven (available on the Base trim). Standard safety features include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, electronic vehicle stability and traction control systems, active anti-whiplash front head restraints, front side-impact airbags and overhead curtain airbags for all rows. Hybrid-related components are backed by an 8-year/100,000 mile warranty. After an extensive redesign in 2008, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid carries over unchanged for 2009.
