The ultimate full-size SUV returns to BC better than ever with more tech, safety and strength to get your family where they need to go. The recently redesigned 2021 Toyota Highlander delivers big for Kootenay drivers, offering everything from a powerful all-wheel drive V6 engine to fuel-efficient advanced hybrid technology. For those looking to add some spice to their ride, the brand-new 2021 Highlander XSE trim level delivers with aggressive exterior styling, sport-calibrated suspension, bold 20-inch wheels and sleek accents throughout. With no shortage of versatile features, luxurious comfort and ample storage space for everything from camping gear to strollers, the 2021 Toyota Highlander continues to prove why it’s the reigning king of family vehicles in Castlegar and beyond!
When you can fit up to 8 passengers in your ride, keeping them safe is a top priority. The 2021 Highlander makes protecting the people you travel with easy, thanks to innovative systems from Toyota Safety Sense. Enjoy having a smart driver assistance program working as your extra set of eyes and ears, with smart features like Lane Departure Alert, Pre-Collision Warning with Auto Emergency Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, NEW Semi-Automated Collision-Avoidance Steering Technology, and so much more. Because road safety is so important to Toyota, every model in the 2021 Highlander lineup includes capable driver-assist safety technology as standard fare.
The 2021 Highlander Hybrid features a 2.5L engine, plus two regenerative electric motors, that boasts a beefy 243-horsepower in your choice of front- or all-wheel drive. This model is designed with a unique ‘continuously variable automatic transmission’ (CVT) that delivers excellent acceleration, plenty of power when you need it most and money-saving fuel efficiency, sipping just 6.9L of gas every 100-kilometres - practically unheard of for a full-size SUV. When compared with other hybrids in the segment, like the Ford Explorer, not only does Highlander come with more standard features across the board and better fuel economy, but it’s also priced at nearly $12,000 less than the competition - a figure that can make a real difference for budget-conscious families.
Having kids shouldn’t compromise your driving experience - and with the 2021 Highlander’s innovative interior, it never has to. Indulge in plush and comfortable seating, a 12.3” touchscreen display and all of the tech extras you can imagine, including USB charging ports, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, a Wi-Fi hotspot and an impressive 11-speaker audio system. This SUV comes loaded with Toyota Connected Services - helpful features that keep you connected using seamless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa compatibility, so that your hands can always stay safely on the wheel.
The 2021 Toyota Highlander gives Castlegar families the power to head out on any adventure the open road has to offer. A fully-equipped Highlander (with a mighty 3.5L V6 engine) boasts a max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Along with Toyota’s trailer stabilizing technology and available AWD, you can haul the family RV (and even a few kayaks!) through the Kootenays with ease. Thanks to Highlander’s sturdy frame and sporty suspension, this capable SUV delivers a smooth and quiet ride - turning your cabin into a cozy haven, no matter how far off the beaten path you’ve travelled.
“(Highlander’s) nicely-equipped cabin is packed with infotainment features and thoughtful storage cubbies. Toyota also equips every Highlander with an extensive suite of standard driver-assistance features to provide an additional layer of safety.”
