When you move around with a large team, you need a vehicle like the Toyota Highlander that can accommodate families on the go. 

 

Driving 

When you check out the Highlander at the dealer of Orange County cars for sale, you will learn that the vehicle is a three-row crossover SUV that caters to seven passengers, plus an optional second-row captain’s chair which increases the Highlander’s seat capacity to eight. It is available in a whopping six trim levels including the LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE, Limited, and Limited Platinum. 

To begin with, the base LE has a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower, 184 pound-feet of torque, a six-speed automatic transmission, and a front-wheel drive. The 3.5 liter V6 can punch out 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque. This comes standard on most trims, is optional on the LE, and is mated with an eight-speed automatic. Also, if you see cars for sale in Orange County that you like such as the Highlander, you can get the optional all-wheel drive that can be added to the V6. 

Technology

 

If you appreciate technological features, you will enjoy the fact that the standard LE comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, a windshield wiper de-icer, rear privacy glass, a rearview camera, rear air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a sliding and reclining 60/40-split second-row seat, and a reclining 60/40-split third-row seat. If that isn’t enough, you can also get a 6.1-inch touchscreen, five USB ports (three in the front, two in the rear), Bluetooth, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player.

 

The LE Plus has a height-adjustable power liftgate, a flip-up rear window, fog lights, tri-zone automatic climate control, upgraded upholstery and trim, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert systems, a high-resolution 8-inch touchscreen, satellite and HD radio, and a selection of smartphone-connection apps.

 

The XLE revolves around the LE Plus’ equipment and adds a sunroof, roof rails, keyless entry and ignition, an upgraded instrument panel, leather upholstery (simulated leather for the third row), heated front seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, second-row window sunshades, a 110-volt power outlet, a navigation system, and Driver Easy Speak, which carries the driver's voice through the speakers to passengers in the rear. So, even if they are in deep conversation or binge-watching Netflix, they can hear what you have to say.

If you want a people carrier and something sporty, then the SE trim could be for you! It is similar to the XLE but with a sports theme that offers larger 19-inch wheels, LED running lights, and sportier suspension tuning and styling elements.

The Limited trim takes it a step further with LED running lights, different 19-inch wheels, rear parking sensors, a rear cargo cover, heated and ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, second-row captain's chairs, and a 12-speaker JBL audio system.

If you opt for the highest trim, the Limited Platinum, you will get panoramic sunroof automatic wipers, a surround-view parking camera system, front parking sensors, Safety Connect emergency communications, a heated steering wheel, and heated second-row seats.

Furthermore, dealers of cars for sale in Orange County informed us that no matter what trim you purchase, the Highlander comes with the Toyota Safety Sense bundle that includes automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

Comfort

The Highlander offers a lot of comfort, a smooth ride, very little road noise, and just the right temperature with the vehicle’s effective climate control system. 

The front seats are adjustable and the rear seats are reclining. The vehicle includes cushioned door armrests that are great for relaxing. 

 

The suspension does an excellent job of silencing bumps and holes that you may encounter on the road. Driving over large dips with the 2019 Highlander feels like a fun amusement ride since the vehicle is buoyant and flexible enough to handle such road irregularities. 

 

Passengers will ride in peace with the Highlander’s well-isolated cabin. The vehicle has automatic climate control functions that use dials for temperature control and buttons for fan speed. The rear passengers will have no reason to complain about the temperature since they have manual control over their own climate through a panel of buttons on the back of the center console. The heated and ventilated front seats work well and ceiling-mounted vents for second and third rows help everyone stay comfortable.

 

When it comes to interior design, the two front rows provide a lot of lateral room, which is ideal for adults and taller passengers, while the third row is a more kid-friendly zone. A large windshield and tall side windows give fantastic outward visibility and limited blind spot zones are thanks to the standard rearview and optional surround-view cameras. You will always be able to check what’s behind you.

 

Overall

 

The 2019 Toyota Highlander is a must-buy for anyone that has to carry a lot of people and things at once. The Highlander is the perfect size and, along with being able to hold so many people, it is surprisingly easy to maneuver. With so many technological features, you and your passengers will be able to sit back and enjoy the ride.
