With the Crossbreed signing up with the Prius in the line-up, Toyota states it is now the very first automobile producer to offer a full gasoline/electric crossbreed in both the intermediate SUV and also mid-size automobile sectors. The Highlander Hybrid is powered by a new version of Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive powertrain, specially-tweaked for a midsize SUV. It features an electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT) and on-demand digital four-wheel-drive. The gas engine functions perfectly with a high-torque electric drive motor-generator that develops a peak system output comparable to 268 hp, but with half the gas consumption of a conventionally-powered car.

The Highlander is a "complete crossbreed", meaning that it could operate in fuel or electrical settings, in addition to a mix of both. Under typical conditions, the Crossbreed runs in front-wheel-drive mode, and automatically changes to 4WD when added grip is needed. The Synergy Drive powertrain powers the front wheels, while an electric motor drives the back ones.

Functions on the gasoline-only Highlander include CD/cassette player with 6 audio speakers, air conditioning, cloth seats, 60/40 split back bench, power locks with keyless entry, power home windows, floor mats, cargo cover, cruise control, 16-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, warmed mirrors, variable recurring wipers, as well as fog lights. The seven-passenger version includes a third-row bench seat with fold-down seatback. Readily available options are a Leather Bundle, and a Limited Plan that includes a lengthy listing of functions, including leather inside, 17-inch wheels, side and curtain airbags and power sunroof.

The five-passenger Crossbreed adds multi-information display, LED taillamps and also 17-inch wheels.

The seven-passenger Hybrid comes just in Restricted trim, and includes updated CD/cassette with eight speakers and wheel-mounted controls, automatic environment control, complementary rear heater, heated natural leather seats, outside temperature gauge, leather-wrapped wheel, integrated garage door opener, side and also drape air bags, anti-theft system, power sunroof as well as light control system.

All versions offer an enjoyable ride, but the seven-passenger version is that in name only; the 3rd row of seats is confined and appropriate mainly for smaller sized kids. Unless you're transporting seven travelers often, the five-passenger offers a lot more cargo area without folding down one more row of seats.

The Crossbreed is state-of-the-art modern technology, with a horse power boost and also far better fuel economic climate than its gasoline-only twin, yet a $6,350 premium in base form and $6,415 in Minimal trim will certainly take a while to pay back at the gas pumps, despite having rising gas costs; purchase this to conserve the planet, not always your purse.
