Limited version of Highlander hybrid
Toyota probably decided to surprise its fans, introducing a limited hybrid vehicle of the well-known Highlander.
Well, reviews and comments are not incentive. Firstly, most people consider that the price of this mid-sized crossover is unreasonable higher than it should be. Its base price is about 50,000 dollars. There is a wide enough choice in this segment; for example, we know Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder and Hyundai Santa Fe.
The second reason to think several times before buying this limited version is fuel consumption – 28 mpg in city conditions even if the current Highlander “eats” 22 mpg in a city.
Anyway, let us tell you about the main technical characters. The car is equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 hybrid engine, which produces 231 horsepower with the torque of 215 lb-ft, and the continuously variable gearbox. The limited version is presented as an all-wheel-drive car.
The common design of a novelty is worthy. Advantages of the interior include a good position of seats and space due to the light gray leather trim. There is a 9-inch display of the rear seat entertainment, wireless headphones, all-weather mats and other features.
In tote, according to comments we may draw a conclusion that the production version of Highlander is much better than the hybrid model. In any case, you will make your own decision.
