Toyota of Goldsboro Reviews 2019 Highlander
Toyota has paved the way for crossover SUVs with their new 2019 Toyota Highlander. Breaking the mold of the normal commuter sports utility vehicle, the Highlander ushers in a new wave of performance and driveability. Marketed as turning every outing into an adventure, Toyota has built the Highlander to fit just about any lifestyle. Available in 8 different trim levels, you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for at a price point you can afford. Today we are going to review the 8 different trim levels and find out what features are offered on each to help you make a better purchasing decision.
To start things off, you will have a base model Highlander offered in the LE trim level. While it is the base level, it does not mean that you will not get some great features. For this level, you will get Entune audio with Bluetooth, an integrated backup camera, seating for 8, Toyota Safety Sense, and 5 USB ports.
Offering a few more features than the LE trim model is the LE Plus. This Plus will still have the standard features found on the LE, however, this trim level will upgrade or replace some of these features. The LE provides a flip up rear hatch, Entune Audio Plus, leather trimmed steering wheel SofTex trimmed seats, three-zone climate control and a power liftgate.
The last stop for the L series trim levels in the XLE. The XLE, similar to the LE, will feature the same equipment as the previous trim level and upgrade some of the features as well. The 2019 Highlander XLE features a Multi-Information Display, power tilt/slide moonroof, Entune Premium Audio with integrated navigation, leather trimmed front and rear seats, Smart key system and a push button start.
As with any Toyota vehicle, there is going to be a more sportier trim level available. On the 2019 Highlander, this trim level is referred to as the SE trim. This sporty look includes many of the same features as the XLE, but again, it gets its upgrades too. The SE will features new technology such as a sport tuned suspension, black painted 19” alloy wheels, a projector beam halogen black accent headlight assembly with LEDs, and auto on/off headlights.
Doing a complete 360 from the sporty SE is the more luxurious Limited trim level. This level features more standout features including 19” Chromtec alloy wheels, Enutune Premium JBL audio, seating for seven, heated and ventilated front row seats, and a blind spot monitoring system.
For those wanting to get an SUV with better fuel economy, you can opt for the Hybrid versions of the Le, XLE, and Limited Highlanders. These will feature the same great equipment as seen on each trim level, but will now feature a gas sipping hybrid engine to allow you to get the best fuel economy available. This is a great way to get both the fuel economy of a hybrid vehicle plus the same great features found on your favorite trim level.
