Expert Quotes:

Buried within the App Suite is Driver Easy Speak, a curiously named technology that uses a headliner-mounted microphone to pipe messages directly from the front row through the rear-mounted speakers.
Road & Track

Toyota's Entune infotainment system is also standard on all trims, but has more functionality on higher models trims.
Autoblog

They are flanked by “capacitive touch” buttons, which are a nice blend between traditional switches and button-less touch spots like the ones on Cadillac’s CUE.
Automobile

that vehicle (the LE) is so poorly optioned (e.g., no navigation, budget seats and cabin materials, no AWD) that I think Toyota’s estimate of a 5 percent take rate is optimistic, even with the $30,075 starting price.
Motor Trend

Technology is a huge focus in the 2014, from how well Toyota's Entune multimedia system works to the Highlander's ability to suck up multimedia devices.

The 2014 Toyota Highlander offers up a rich list of features, even in base four-cylinder models priced at about $30,000. All versions have premium cloth interiors, an Entune connectivity kit, and Bluetooth to go with the usual power features and conveniences. A rearview camera's also standard, as are a USB port, 18-inch wheels, and split-folding second- and third-row seats.

Add the Plus package and you'll get a power driver seat; satellite radio; three-zone automatic climate control; and a power tailgate with a flip-up glass window.

Highlander XLE crossovers come with pushbutton start; leather; heated front seats; a sunroof; navigation; Homelink garage door opener; and 5,000 pounds of towing capacity thanks to the standard V-6 engine. The second-row bench seat can be changed out for captain's chairs. A Blu-Ray DVD entertainment system is an option. A feature called Driver Easy Speak pipes in front-seat voices to back-seat voices in Highlander XLE and higher trims--making a shout at third-row kids a little less strained, if no less necessary.

Limited Highlanders get 19-inch wheels; rear parking sensors and blind-spot monitors; second-row captain's chairs; heating and ventilation for the front seats; a power front passenger seat; and premium audio. At this equipment level, gas-only Highlanders are priced right around $45,000--and Hybrids, $50,000.



Conclusion

Toyota's Entune system is standard, along with Bluetooth and audio streaming; the plushest Hybrid Limited versions push $50,000.

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.
