2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.2

This Toyota has an appealing cabin full of soft-touch surfaces and high-quality materials. The front seats are especially comfortable, and the first two rows can hold most adults comfortably. Total cargo space is average for the class, and the infotainment system takes time to master.

  • "The 2018 Toyota Highlander interior is largely unchanged from the previous iteration. We like that there are numerous USB ports, attractive seat upholstery, and a few other selective trim upgrades. All things considered, the Highlander's interior is one of its strong points." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Step into the new Highlander and you'll find a comfortable driving position; refreshingly straightforward controls that are logically located, clearly marked and intuitively functional; and plenty of attention to detail as far as utility is concerned. All of this simplicity is rendered in a pleasing design comprised of appealing materials." -- New York Daily News (2017)
  • "It offers a spacious, comfortable and quiet cabin, seating for seven and high-quality materials and finish." -- Edmunds (2016)

 Seating

This three-row vehicle seats eight people in its standard configuration. Replacing the second-row split-bench seat with captain’s chairs lowers the seating occupancy to seven. Cloth upholstery comes standard, while leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel are optional.

Adults have enough space to sit in the first two rows comfortably. The third row is fine for adults on shorter trips, but that space is best left for kids on longer ones. The front seats are comfortable. There are two sets of LATCH connectors in the second-row, while both rear middle seats have an additional tether anchor.

  • "In front, we think the driver’s seat is above average in comfort, and depending on trim can be outfitted in leather and even offer heating and ventilation functions." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "I set the driver's seat in my driving position (I'm almost 6 feet tall) and moved the second-row seat forward as far as possible while still giving my knees space. When I jumped back into the third row, I was pleasantly surprised – it felt like there was more room than in the previous-generation Highlander. There is still a high floor, which elevates your knees a bit, so I still wouldn't recommend the third row to a grown-up for a road trip." -- Cars.com (2017)
  • "The mechanical recline-and-slide second-row unit for third-row access works pretty well." -- Motor Trend (2017)

 Interior Features

This Toyota comes standard with push-button start, proximity keyless entry, air conditioning, a six-speaker stereo, five USB ports, Bluetooth, and the Entune interface with a 6.1-inch touch screen. A rearview camera and the Toyota Safety Sense packages are also standard. This suite of safety features includes a pre-collision warning and braking system with pedestrian detection, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning.

Optional equipment includes a 12-speaker JBL stereo, a rear-seat entertainment system, satellite radio, HD Radio, navigation, and an 8-inch touch screen. Tri-zone automatic climate control, front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera, remote start, a panoramic moonroof, and Driver Easy Speak, which amplifies the driver’s voice through the rear speakers, are also available.

The suite of safety features is impressive, but the infotainment system – not so much. The controls are well-placed, but using some of the touch screen’s functions can be tricky.

  • "No matter which new Toyota Highlander you buy, it will come with this impressive suite of safety and driver-assistance features. Toyota Safety Sense will do everything from detect pedestrians and keep you within lanes to warn of a collision and even automatically apply the brakes if a collision appears imminent. Also helpful is adaptive cruise control." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "While the new driver information display screen occasionally proves confusing when making adjustments to settings, once you've adjusted all of its features and functions to your liking you won't interact with it much. The touchscreen infotainment system similarly challenges a user on occasion; its most egregious sin is the lack of a 'Nav' button supplying one-touch access to the map display." -- New York Daily News (2017)
  • "All the major controls are within easy eyes-on-the-road reach, and I particularly like how many places there are to stash stuff in and around the center console – especially the shelf under the HVAC controls that extends all the way to the passenger door." -- Autoweek (2016)

 Cargo

The 2019 Highlander Hybrid has 13.8 cubic feet of space with all the seats in use, 42.3 cubic feet behind the second row, and a maximum 83.7 cubic feet. The first total is subpar among midsize SUVs, but the other two figures are about average for the class. A power liftgate and a rear window that opens separately from the liftgate are both available.

  • "Both rear rows fold nearly flat for better cargo flexibility. If you’re not using the third row on a regular basis, you’ll probably find it’s better left down, as cargo space is at a premium with it up." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "As might be expected, the third-row seat chews up cargo space, so you'll need to decide whether you want to carry up to 3 extra people or luggage for up to 5 travelers." -- J.D. Power (2017)
  • "It does have a ton of space." -- Autoweek (2016)
