Highlander interior gets high praise from critics

“In our interior evaluation, the 2015 Highlander gets high marks for dashboard design and materials quality, especially compared to the previous model. Toyota clearly sweated the details this time around, and the result is a palpably premium environment, even in the lower trim levels. The gap between Toyota and Lexus has narrowed considerably here, which is good, because the Highlander actually costs as much as a Lexus if you want all the fixings.” — AutoTrader (2015)

With standard features like a USB port, Toyota Entune infotainment system, a 6.1-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera, Highlander’s interior is equipped to handle every driver and passenger need. The dashboard controls are easy to use, with climate controls and major audio controls separate from the touch-screen.

Highlander has many storage spaces inside the cabin for small items, including a center console and large glovebox. The available variable power liftgate easily adjusts to accommodate user height and different sized garages.

The front seats and second row seats are easy to step into and offer plenty of room for adults. The third row seat can easily accommodate up to three children.
