2016 Toyota Highlander Trims

For families requiring a refined three-row crossover SUV that delivers confident performance, a functional and spacious cabin, and comfortable ride quality, the 2016 Toyota Highlander is a top contender. Critics are in agreement, which is made clear in the overwhelmingly positive 2016 Toyota Highlander reviews. See what they praised about this model before making your own conclusions at Toyota of Naperville.


Edmunds: “The 2016 Toyota Highlander, which represents the third year of the model’s current generation, remains a top contender among family-friendly crossover SUVs. For buyers repelled by minivans or those who don’t need a V8-powered toy-hauling behemoth, the three-row Highlander hits the sweet spot, offering front- or all-wheel-drive, a choice of four-cylinder or V6 engines, and five distinct trim levels, each with a successively longer list of features.”

The Toyota Highlander provides the kind of driving experience you want from a crossover SUV—confident and powerful all at once. The driving dynamics are incredibly compliant for everything from daily commutes to long road trips. Those who want plenty of power can get it from a 3.5L V6 engine that makes 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque, and tows up to 5,000 pounds with the help of the newly standard towing package.


Kelley Blue Book: “The 2016 Toyota Highlander places and emphasis on safety, comfort, economy, reliability, and resale. Its sharp exterior and numerous interior features are simply icing on the cake.”

If features are the icing on the cake, then that’s a lot of icing. Every Toyota Highlander gets Bluetooth, a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface, a rearview camera, cruise control, and exterior features like 18-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler. On higher trim levels, you can get tri-zone climate control, advanced smartphone integration via the Entune App Suite, a navigation system, leather upholstery, heated first- and second-row seats, and the Driver Technology package to help you avoid collisions.
