Green trees. Blue sky. We’d all like to help keep it that way—which is why Hybrid Limited’s engine carries a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (SULEV-II) rating.
In ECO Mode, Highlander Hybrid modifies throttle response to help with fuel economy and can also help when you’re slowly accelerating on low-traction surfaces such as snow or ice. EV Mode uses only the electric motor for situations where you’re driving at low speeds for short distances, such as in a parking garage.
The Hybrid Synergy Drive® system in Hybrid Limited combines an efficient 3.5-liter V6 and an electric motor to produce 280 hybrid system net horsepower. At the same time, Hybrid Limited offers an impressive EPA-estimated 27 city and 28 highway mpg 17 and carries a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) rating.
The 2016 Highlander was designed with excitement in mind. A bold, aggressive grille aids airflow, while the available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) add style and visibility. And its available Chromtec® roof rails are integrated, which means when you aren’t using them to carry your accessories, their aerodynamic shape minimizes the noise coming from overhead.
This available feature allows you to open the rear liftgate and adjust how high it opens with the press of a button. If you have a garage with low clearance or a covered parking spot, you know how much this matters. And there’s no need to open the entire liftgate to quickly grab something small. Just use the available flip-up rear hatch window for easy access.
Waste no space. We designed the rear suspension of Highlander to create more space in the cargo area for your gear. And since every journey’s different, Highlander is there to adapt. Sometimes you’ve got lots of people, lots of gear, or a mix of both. The 60/40 split third-row seat has the ability to fold flat and recline to accommodate your needs.
Entertaining from the driver's seat is tough. Let the available Blu-ray Disc™ rear-seat entertainment system help. The 9-in. display screen comes with RCA jacks, remote and two wireless headphones.
No matter where you go, the temperature’s perfect inside. The three-zone climate control available on Highlander features individual temperature controls for the driver and front passenger, along with a separate control panel in the back for the second- and third-row vents.
Highlander XLE and Limited come standard with Integrated Navigation, so you can get lost in your music without getting lost on the road. And with the Multi-Information Display’s turn-by-turn navigation feature, your next move is always within sight. With just a glance, you’ll get turn-by-turn directions on the available 4.2-in. color LCD display located within your sightline in front of your steering wheel.
A Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) comes standard on every Highlander. Designed to monitor tire pressure at all times, it alerts the driver when a tire or tires become critically underinflated and is one more way Highlander helps keep you safe.
When it comes to safety and convenience, Highlander delivers. Whether you're backing up or parallel parking, the standard backup camera can serve as a guide by showing what the camera detects on the touch-screen display.
LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) provides an added measure of safety for the smaller members of your family. LATCH includes lower anchors and tethers on the outboard second-row seats and a tether anchor on the middle seat of the second and third rows.
