The 2019 Toyota Highlander is a three-row crossover known for its passenger comfort, cargo space that’s beyond impressive, family safety, a strong V-6 and an impressive hybrid edition.
The styling was tweaked with more sharp angles last year, and the interior was improved, so the changes for 2019 are all cosmetic. The SE gets dark-tinted headlights, taillights, fog lights and wheels, while other models get black plastic rocker panels and some new contrasting chrome.
The Highlander earned five stars overall from the NHTSA for crash safety in 2018, with four stars in frontal crash and rollover. The IIHS named it a Top Safety Pick+. The Highlander leads its rivals in standard active safety equipment, including forward-collision warnings, full-speed automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and automatic high-beam headlights.
