The 2017 Highlander Hybrid features a refreshed front fascia with an updated grille and redesigned headlights, making for one bold first impression. And with a unique grille tailored for each grade, there's a Highlander that perfectly matches your style.
Let's shine a light on style. Redesigned headlights now feature integrated Daytime Running Lights (DRL), amplifying the 2017 Highlander's signature look. The all-new SE grade ups the excitement with its dark-black-accent headlights, while Highlander Limited Platinum has a powerful presence of its own with smoked-chrome headlight housings. Every Highlander gets all-new LED taillights for added visibility in the rear.
Highlander shows off its athletic side with a selection of available alloy wheels. The sporty Highlander SE has 19-in. multispoke alloy wheels with a machined finish.
In-seat entertainment for everyone. Your passengers have the whole sky to entertain them, thanks to the available panoramic moonroof that is part of the Platinum Package.
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's available Driver Easy Speak feature has a built-in microphone up front that picks up your voice and transmits it to rear-seat passengers through back speakers.
Part of enjoying the road is not to hear it. Highlander has silencing insulation materials along its floor to help keep things quiet, as well as Acoustic-type glass in the windshield to further reduce noise entering the cabin.
Highlander's available leather-trimmed heated 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat gives you maximum comfort on all your journeys. Highlander Limited features perforated leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front seats for all-season comfort. The distinctive accent-color seat stitching adds visual contrast and unique style. You can also keep your hands warm on chilly days with the heated steering wheel available with the Platinum Package.
With the available Entune Multimedia Bundle, Highlander has the tech to make any drive a whole lot more fun. With the available 8-in. high-resolution touch-screen display, integrated navigation and a suite of popular apps, this is one smart way to help keep you connected. With integrated SiriusXM Satellite Radio compatibility, you've got coast-to-coast access to over 150 channels of commercial-free music, sports, talk, comedy and more.
Highlander features the Star Safety SystemTM, a suite of six active safety features that include Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA) and Smart Stop Technology® (SST).
Lane Departure Alert (LDA) helps you stay in your lane. The system detects visible painted lane markings on the road and alerts you if you are to drift out of your lane. An audible beep and flashing light on the instrument panel alert you to take corrective action. When combined with Steering Assist, LDA helps keep Highlander in its lane by providing gentle corrective steering when necessary.
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.
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.
