Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Toyota Highlander learned new tricks to keep us entertained on the road, when we’re not asleep in the back anyway..

Pros
Better style
New sporty XSE look
Still practical…
...and fuel efficient
Great standard safety

Cons
Infotainment is still a headache
Exterior is a little busy
Pricey top models
Small-ish third row

The sporty-looking XSE trim level joins the Highlander lineup for 2021. It punches up the looks with more aggressive exterior styling, unique 20-inch wheels, black exterior accents, and a sportier calibration for the suspension. Elsewhere, LED projection headlamps are now a standard feature and all models receive additional driver-assistance features, including semi-automated emergency steering technology that's designed to help a driver avoid collisions.

Pros
Attractive design,
optional hybrid powertrain,
generous standard features.

Cons
Few driving thrills,
skimpy third-row room,
fussy interior styling.

The sporty XSE trim debuts in the Hybrid lineup.More advanced safety features are standard.LED headlights are now standard.

Pros
High fuel economy for a three-row SUV
Sensibly priced compared to the non-hybrid Highlander
Comfortable ride quality
Plenty of standard and available safety features

Cons
Third-row seats are cramped
Not a whole lot of cargo space behind the third-row seat
Engine sounds unrefined at full throttle
