2019 Highlander: Passenger and Cargo Space
When looking for a large SUV, you’ll want to be sure that there’s plenty of space for passengers of all sizes. The 2019 Toyota Highlander offers tons of room with seating for up to eight passengers, depending on whether you choose the second-row bench or captain’s chairs.
With comfort also comes style, and the Highlander isn’t your typical soccer mom cruiser. You’ll find available leather upholstery, along with heated front- and second-row seats. The third row is easily accessible, too, thanks to the sliding second row.
Plenty of passenger space means you might need some extra room in the trunk. With the third row folded, the Highlander will give you 42.3 ft3 of cargo space; fold down the second row as well, and you’ll open up to an impressive 83.7 ft3, which is plenty of space to buy that piece of furniture you’ve had your eye on!
Powering the Highlander
Under the hood of the 2019 Highlander, you’ll find a base 2.7L 4-cylinder engine that puts out 185 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. If that’s not enough power, opt for the 3.5L V6 engine, which puts out 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque.
If fuel economy is a deciding factor when choosing a large SUV, the Highlander excels in its class. With the V6 engine, you’ll achieve an EPA-estimated 20/27 MPG city/highway – so you’ll finally be able to bypass those rest stops on the way to your next family vacation spot!
Speaking of family vacations, you might want to bring something extra along with you, which is where the Highlander’s towing capacity comes into play. Pull up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, and you’ll see how the Highlander can help to make your getaways even more fun.
Technology in the Highlander
The Toyota Highlander offers plenty of technology features that will keep you and your family both safe and entertained on the road. A 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system comes standard, and includes Bluetooth® accessibility and five USB ports, so you’ll always be connected to your smartphone music and apps.
The Highlander also comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, which includes active safety features such as:
- Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
- Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
- Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
- Automatic High Beams
With features like these, you’ll find an extra sense of security for you and your loved ones on your daily drives.
