The 2010 Toyota Highlander comes equipped with a wide range of very desirable features. What's more impressive is how many of those features are included as standard fare-especially on the higher trim levels. The 2010 Toyota Highlander is, in the words of Edmunds reviewers, "truly optimized for family use."
The 2010 Toyota Highlander lineup is available in three trims, which ConsumerGuide cites as "Base, Sport, [and] Limited." Reviewers at Edmunds note the base version of the Toyota Highlander has "17-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, a fold-flat third-row seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, air-conditioning, a CD stereo with an auxiliary input jack and full power accessories"-all as standard.
The Sport model replaces the base 17-inch six-spoke alloy wheels with 19-inch five-spoke wheels, adds a fold-flat second-row seat and number of appearance features, and provides a 3.5-inch multifunction display in the instrument panel. The Limited adds leather-trimmed power seats, various luxury appearance items inside and out, keyless entry, and a garage-door transceiver. ConsumerGuide also notes that Sport models get a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls [and] 8-way power driver seat," while the Limited includes "dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery," and "AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer."
As with most vehicles, the really exciting features for the 2010 Toyota Highlander are available as options. Some of the more noteworthy choices include "a navigation system, JBL premium audio, a backseat DVD player, [and] a moonroof," according to Cars.com. Kelley Blue Book rounds out the options list by noting that "multi-stage heated leather front seats" and a "power liftgate" are available, along with "Bluetooth phone connectivity."
The 2010 Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid offer a long list of standard features, even before the higher trim levels and optional equipment.
