"A multi-purpose mobile command centre. A place to connect with family and friends. The perfect vehicle for that weekend getaway. Your sanctuary from the everyday. The Highlander is all of that and more. Featuring flexible seating for 7 or 8, Connected Services that elevate convenience and safety, premium touches in every seat, a choice of two powerful and fuel efficient engines, and impressive road-handling capabilities. Drive Your World with the Highlander." - Toyota Canada
The Toyota Highlander was completely redesigned in 2020 . The exterior boasts contemporary classic-looking lines with just the right balance of attitude and gravitas. Bulging fenders and blacked-out A-pillars lend a sense of toughness. Structurally, the Highlander is built off the new TNGA-K platform that emphasizes driving refinement. The interior textures and console are all updated throughout the trim levels and show a thoughtful, practical sensibility of design.
Toyota Connect adds Android Auto connectivity to please Android users, and continues to offer Apple Carplay for the iPhone afficionados. SiriusXM Compatibility is another perk, and on some trim levels JBL speakers can elevate the experience of sound in your space.
Standard Safety Connect includes an SOS button that contacts emergency assistance or enhanced roadside assistance services with your exact location. Also included is automatic collision notification and stolen vehicle locator. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 is standard on all trim levels.
Destination Assist connects you with a live agent who works with you to determine points of interest and sends them to your navigation system.
Remote Connect in conjunction with the Toyota App gives you the ability to use your phone to lock and unlock doors, start or stop the engine, check on whether or not your windows and moonroof are open, check your vehicle's last parked location, and access guest driver settings which allow you to set conditions for a guest driver and be informed via notification if any are violated, including maximum speed, maximum kilometres, distance from a set location and more. Amazon Alexa can also perform many of these tasks when set up with your 2021 Highlander.
