The 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is noticeably more expensive than its conventionally powered sibling, but in addition to the hybrid propulsion, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers a greater range of standard features.

According to ConsumerGuide, the 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid in base trim comes with a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls" for the single-CD player, "keyless access and starting, rearview camera," and "digital-media player connection" as standard fare. Moving up to the 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited adds "leather upholstery, heated front seats...AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer" and "power liftgate," according to ConsumerGuide. ForbesAutos adds that "a back-up camera and Smart Key entry/start system are among [the Toyota Highlander Hybrid's] many standard features."

In addition to the standard features that the Toyota 2009 Highlander Hybrid boasts, there are plenty of available options for those who crave more technology. ConsumerGuide lists several popular options groups for the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, including the Popular and Popular Plus packages for the base that add a "leather-wrapped steering wheel" and "6-disc CD/MP3 changer," along with the Limited's "power liftgate w/power window." Car and Driver reviewers are particularly impressed with the "whompin' optional JBL sound system," while those at MotherProof love the "slick GPS navigation system that includes voice activation" and available "Bluetooth and MP3 capability." Rounding out the list is a "rear DVD entertainment system," according to ForbesAutos.

Conclusion

The 2009 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is guaranteed to impress with its standard features, but the real treats are found on the options list—and they'll set you back a bit more.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
