2022 Toyota Highlander Review: Interior

A definite upgrade for Edmond drivers looking for some cool upgraded features. Learn more about what the experts have to say in their 2022 Toyota Highlander 3rd row review:

Car and Driver: Regarding the 5 star safety award from the NHTSA, Car and Driver notes, as is the Toyota way, the Highlander offers a standard suite of driver-assistance features. The package includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and automatic high-beam headlamp.”

Kelley Blue Book: “The interior of the Toyota Highlander uses a handsome design that makes it feel more premium than its price tag suggests. Not only does it look nice, but it’s designed with ergonomics in mind, and the controls are easy to use. The higher you go in the model range, the nicer it gets with features like leather seats, a head-up display, JBL premium audio, and more.”

Toyota Highlander Review: Performance

Edmond families can choose from a mighty 3.5L V6 engine or a 2.5L 4-cylinder hybrid powertrain. Both engines provide stellar performance on the road and come with an optional AWD drivetrain. Read the 2022 Toyota Highlander reviews for its engine below:

U.S. News: “The Toyota Highlander’s 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 295 horsepower and provides plenty of muscle to get the vehicle moving quickly. The smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission makes good use of the V6’s power.”

Car and Driver: “During a brief test drive, we found the V-6 could tackle short on-ramps without straining; at our test track, our all-wheel-drive test vehicle made it to 60 mph in a reasonably quick 6.7 seconds. Handling is unexciting but stable, and the ride is perfectly suitable for family-chauffeur duty. .”

Toyota Highlander XLE Reviews

In the middle of the Toyota Highlander lineup is the Toyota Highlander XLE, a popular Highlander of choice for many Shawnee drivers. This Highlander comes with respectable a suite of standard amenities and excellent performance for a low-starting price of $41,055 MSRP*. Read the Toyota Highlander XLE reviews below:

Car and Driver: “the midrange XLE is the pick of the litter. It has heated front seats, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a power sunroof, among other niceties. We’d also spring for the Premium Audio with Dynamic Navigation package, which brings in-dash navigation and an upgraded stereo system.”

Edmunds: “…the 2022 XLE is awesome…and worth the extra money. It is high-tech…the drivers side feels more like the cockpit of a small plane. Seats are very comfortable and so far, the features seem to be well positioned unlike the other models we’ve had.”

We do have one minor gripe: The engine can be noisy under hard acceleration, but you’ll hardly notice it when cruising on the highway.”

U.S. News: “We named the Highlander Hybrid our2022 Best Hybrid or Electric SUV for Families because it has a stellar combination of cargo and passenger space, safety and reliability ratings, positive reviews from automotive journalists, and available family-friendly features.”
