These days, life can be filled with challenges. Fortunately, the 2013 Toyota Highlander is filled with solutions. Its versatile interior offers comfortable seating for up to seven, and amenities for everyone. It provides an array of advanced safety features. It delivers responsive performance, while achieving remarkable fuel efficiency. And as you might expect, it offers Toyota’s legendary reliability. All this, wrapped in a sleek, handsome exterior. With a variety of trim levels to choose from, including Highlander, Highlander Plus, SE and Limited, there’s sure to be a model that’s just right for you. In fact, you can even get one with the eco-advanced technology of Hybrid Synergy Drive. But Highlander shines, especially brightly when it’s filled with one thing, in particular: your family.

Transporting seven people is one thing; making sure everyone enjoys the ride is quite another. Remarkably, Highlander does both. The seats are engineered to offer both comfort and versatility. Gauges are easy to read, and controls are readily at hand. And the advanced navigation and entertainment systems add convenience, information and fun. You might just find that when it comes to spending quality time together, the sit-down family dinner has met its match.

Whether you’re taking the gang to hockey practice or helping your eldest move into their college dorm, Highlander is up to the task. Within moments, the second- and third-row seats fold flat, opening up 95.4 cubic feet of cargo space for all sorts of bulky items. And there’s stadium seating to enhance the sense of space for those in the second and third rows. So no matter what you’ve brought along for the ride — passengers, cargo or both — Highlander handles it all with ease.

Highlander’s all-around smart performance is due in part to a technology called Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence VVT-I . This advanced system knows precisely how to adjust the valve timing to optimize the engine’s “breathing” and maximize performance. So whether you’re passing on a hill, tooling around town or just sitting at idle, Highlander always delivers high marks in power, efficiency and reduced emissions.

Highlander Hybrid is engineered with future generations in mind. While you may be familiar with its environmental attributes, you may not know that it also offers the same level of performance as the non-hybrid V6. In fact, its gasoline engine and Hybrid Synergy Drive produce an impressive 280 net horsepower. Altruism has never been so much fun.

When it comes to driving, Toyota doesn’t accept the old adage that what can go wrong, will. Real safety involves anticipating trouble and then avoiding it. That’s why every Highlander is equipped with a suite of active safety features known as the Star Safety System. Of course, in the event trouble proves unavoidable, Highlander is also equipped with a host of passive safety features, such as seven airbags, crumple zones, and advanced seatbelts.

A wide range of Genuine Toyota Accessories is available to help you make your Highlander your own. Considering how appealing Highlander is to begin with, these high-quality products will be like icing on the cake. Some accessories may not be available in all regions of the country.
