2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid should continue with the attractive and modern design and largeness in every detail, combined with the great economic engine. It is not easy to compete with the models in this class, and the manufacturer will do whatever is needed to keep the first position on this list.

- There are no changes in design from the last year.
- The price goes very high in higher trims.
2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid supports the well-known car appearance, known to trustworthy and stable design and shape. However, do not expect that model will have many changes this time. The manufacturer has improved the model only in details, so you could see that it has excellent front and rear bumpers, beautiful fine lines in chrome and wide but handsome LED lights.
It has the same flat roof with the full back door and attractive shape of the trunk. The whole model is large and modern but provides the familiar look of the reliable family car, which you can use for everyday driving and the weekends and holidays with the children. It seems that over the years has disappeared similarities with the Chevrolet Traverse, but the model has closer to the Ford Explorer, at least in flat lines.
The cabin inside of 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid has great additions and details that provide excellent performances and giant space that we expected. The first two rows are very comfortable and full of seven persons, but only two children’s seats in the third row. Even the places in the second row are well-sculpted to provide comfort and space for adult persons.
The model has impressive cargo space, too, with more than 10 feet between wheels. When it comes to the design and materials, the manufacturer has included the best in class. It means that model has synthetic leather in the base model, with quality leather in higher trims. The base model has excellent features, including Apple CarPlay and Android store, a navigation system, a parking camera, and many other things.
2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Engine
Although most Highlanders have the same engine, a trustworthy and powerful 3.5-liter, 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid will come with entirely different options. The 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque in the first petrol version were strong enough to drive models like Toyota RAV4.
The manufacturer wanted to offer something greener this time, but strong enough to beat the competition. They have chosen a 2.5-liter inline-4 petrol model combined with the electric motor made by nickel-metal-hybrid combination for an incredible 243 horsepower.
The model has an impressive fuel economy – 35 mpg in all types of driving. You will be able to choose among the front and rear wheel driving model, but keep in mind that electric motor drives only rear wheels. There will be few impressive trims with significant upgrades, like Limited, Platinum, and XSE model, with more strength in rear wheels. The engine comes in combination with the eight-speed automatic transmission.

The final releasing date of the model will be later this year, and we expect that they will offer it on planned time.
