The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a head turner in the mid-sized SUV segment. While the Highlander Hybrid is not as opulent as its Lexus RX cousins, it is surprisingly well-balanced. Starting at a price of $37,665 (with a $995 destination charge included), this practical three-row SUV is loaded with standard technology and safety features that are premium upgrades on many competitors. The roomy cabin and cargo space is average, while it delivers a comfortable ride, produces exceptional city and highway fuel economy, and packs an impressive punch for a hybrid engine combination.
What's New for 2018
Receiving a fresh exterior and interior upgrade in 2017, the 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid hits dealerships this year relatively unchanged.
Choosing Your Toyota Highlander Hybrid
The Highlander Hybrid's powerplant consists of a 3.5-liter V6 that works together with two electric motors and a single electric generator to produce 306 horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque. An electronic continuously variable transmission supplies power to the ground through a standard all-wheel drive system. This combination returns an EPA-estimated 30 miles per gallon in the city, 28 mpg highway, and 29 mpg combined.
The 2018 Highlander Hybrid offering this three-row, mid-sized SUV in four available trim levels including the LE, XLE, Limited and Limited Platinum still available with impressive standard features such as climate control, a height adjustable driver seat, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera, and 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system that operates a six-speaker stereo system
Toyota makes selecting the perfect Highlander Hybrid simple, offering this three-row, mid-sized SUV in four available trim levels including the LE, XLE, Limited and Limited Platinum. Consumers will find upgradable packages sparse, but individual trims include noticeable interior, exterior, and technology upgrades that justify the increase in starting price.
Although this vehicle is one of the more expensive mid-sized SUVs, the 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a safe, efficient choice for families. The XLE is arguably the best buy, with the upgraded multimedia package, moonroof, and heated front seats. For mid-sized SUV shoppers with children, adding the rear seat entertainment center will deliver a well-equipped hybrid without breaking the bank.
