2019 Toyota Highlander Review
If you’re looking for a family-friendly SUV with lots of space, comfort, and features, the 2019 Toyota Highlander may work for you. But to know for sure, you’ll need to learn all about it.
That’s why the team at Ira Toyota of Tewksbury created this detailed review. Keep reading to see what this midsize SUV has to offer, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Toyota Highlander Interior Space
The 2019 Toyota Highlander offers comfortable and supportive seats for 7-8 people, depending on which trim you opt for. We cover the Toyota Highlander dimensions for you.
Among the three rows of seats, you’ll have the following interior dimensions…
- First-row headroom/legroom: 40.7 inches/44.2 inches
- Second-row headroom/legroom: 39.9 inches/38.4 inches
- Third-row headroom/legroom: 35.9 inches/27.7 inches
The Highlander comes standard with a second-row bench seat, allowing you to fit a total of eight people inside. However, you could opt for the available second-row captain’s chairs. While this does bring the total seating down to seven, it gives those passengers even more comfort.
Furthermore, you’ll have plenty of cargo room to store shopping bags, camping gear, and other essential items. That’s because the SUV offers up to 83.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the second and third rows are folded down flat. Plus, the 60/40 split-folding second and third rows offer the flexibility to fit items of all shapes and sizes inside while still leaving room for some passengers.
Cabin Design & Amenities
The 2019 Highlander cabin itself is nicely designed, with standard cloth upholstery and available perforated leather-trimmed seating. Plus, you can get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, along with an elegant-looking soft-touch upper door trim with metallic accent.
A panoramic moonroof is available, too. The interior will feel more open, and you get to enjoy fresh air, some sunshine during the day, and the stars at night.
The interior cabin itself is nice and quiet, built with silencing insulation materials along the floor and an acoustic-type glass in the windshield. So, you can listen to music or talk to your passengers without any outside interference.
There are also lots of amenities to help keep everyone nice and relaxed. These include heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain’s chairs, and a heated steering wheel. No matter what the temperature is like outside, you can quickly warm up or cool down with just the touch of a button.
2019 Highlander Technologies
Then there are the technologies inside the Toyota Highlander that can help keep you entertained and safe.
The first is the available Entune™ Multimedia Bundle. It comes with lots of options like:
- An 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen
- A navigation system
- HD Radio™
- SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
Plus, you can also get the Entune® App Suite. Just download various apps onto your mobile device, then plug it into the vehicle’s USB port. You can then do things like stream music or buy movie tickets without needing to touch your phone while driving.
Additionally, you’ll find lots of driver-assisting technologies, for your peace of mind. The Highlander comes standard with Toyota Safety™ P (TSS-P). This suite of features acts as a second pair of eyes, warning you of any issues on the road and even stepping in when needed.
One feature that’s part of the TSS-P package is the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. If the system senses that you’re getting too close to a car or person, it’ll send visual and audible warnings for you to hit the brakes. If you can’t in time, the system can do it for you.
