In terms of design, the new 2021 Toyota Highlander body remains recognizable, but now the model’s appearance is less aggressive, and the car has become visually lighter.

At the front, the massive radiator grille has been replaced by a more modest design, reminiscent of the RAV4 V.

The brand’s emblem is located at the top of the grille, while it is framed by a chrome trim with beams extending to the headlights.

The head optics have become narrower and noticeably stretched along the front fenders, and the bonnet has become more prominent.

The very lightness in the appearance of the new Highlander is added by the sidewalls with a stylish curved stamping on the doors, as well as a rising window sill line, a spoiler-visor over the trunk lid and taillights extending far into the wings. The lanterns themselves, as before, are horizontally oriented, but from now on they are also made narrower.

The 2021 Toyota Highlander predecessor has only three shades: Midnight Black Metallic, Celestial Silver Metallic and optional ($ 395) Blizzard Pearl.

The other five colors are all new: Magnetic Gray Metallic, Moon Dust Blue, Ruby Flare Pearl Red, Blueprint Blue and Opulent Amber Brown.

The interior of the crossover by default has three rows of seats for eight people (the second and third rows are three-seater), although the top-end configurations have separate captain’s chairs on the second row, but if desired, customers can replace them with a one-piece sofa (the range of longitudinal movement of the second row is increased by 30 mm).

The manufacturer has worked to improve sound insulation and increase the level of finishing materials.

At the same time, the architecture of the front panel in the new Toyota Highlander 2021 model remains the same.

The car has a different steering wheel, a redesigned instrument panel, although it is made in a classic style, as well as a high-positioned multimedia system screen.

The vertical ventilation deflectors were replaced by horizontal ones, but the shelves above the dashboard and under the glovebox were retained.


The basis of the Toyota Highlander 2021 in a new body is the modular platform Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA-K) with a compact rear multi-link and a low center of gravity.

The use of the new «bogie» made it possible to improve the handling of the large crossover, increase its stability on the road, and also make it more comfortable and safe.

The overall length of the car is 4,966 mm, width — 1,930, height — 1,755, the wheelbase has added 60 millimeters — up to 2,850, and the trunk volume in the three-row version is 456 liters.

With the backs folded in the gallery, the size of the compartment increases to 1,150 liters, and if you fold the backs of the second and third rows, you get a hold of 2,076 liters (parameters are given according to the EPA method).

Two engines are offered as power plants for an off-road vehicle. The new Toyota Highlander V6 is equipped with the previous 3.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol six with combined fuel injection and Dual VVT-i phase change system with a capacity of 299 hp.

The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic and an all-wheel drive system with a rear axle clutch.

At the same time, the top-end crossover flaunts the presence of an advanced all-wheel drive system Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD with two side clutches for connecting the rear wheels.

Hybrid Highlander Hybrid (this option is not supplied to us) now has a 2.5-liter «four» DOHC, supplemented by one or two electric motors and a compact traction battery, located under the rear sofa.

The total output of the installation reaches 243 hp, while the drive can be front or full (the second electric motor drives the rear axle).

There are four operating modes: Normal, Eco and Sport, plus EV, which allows you to drive a short distance on electric traction.

Compared to the previous hybrid, the new version turned out to be 17% more economical at once. On average, it consumes 6.9 liters per hundred, while the former consumes 8.4 l / 100 km.

In addition, the all-wheel drive version of the model has a Multi-Terrain Select system, which allows you to select Mud & Sand or Rock & Dirt modes for more confident movement through mud and sand, as well as rocks.
