Since it's pitched at families accustomed to a certain degree of convenience, the Toyota Highlander comes with a long list of standard features. All versions have power windows, locks and mirrors; air conditioning; cruise control; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel; and an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary port.
The Highlander SE adds on more audio functions--satellite radio, Bluetooth streaming, a USB port--along with leather seats for first- and second-row chairs. It also sports a moonroof, a power tailgate, and a power driver seat, as well as a 3.5-inch LCD monitor in the dash that's used to display vehicle functions.
Spend up to the ne plus ultra Highlander Limited, and the convenience scale tips with leather-trimmed power seats, 19-inch wheels, three-zone automatic climate control, dual power front seats, and the Center Stow Seat, as well as woodgrain trim.
If you're selecting a Highlander Hybrid, your choices are more limited, as it's only offered in Base and Limited trim. The standard Hybrid equals the base gas-powered Highlander's features, while it adds UV-reducing glass and the 3.5-inch LCD display, which is used for the rearview camera's readouts. It also comes with Bluetooth, XM satellite radio and a USB port. The Hybrid Limited tops off the Highlander range with 19-inch wheels, more chrome trim, and a power liftgate.
Options on various models include a navigation system, real-time traffic, a towing package, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.
