| CarReview's opinion of the 2011 Toyota Highlander|
- Spacious and airy
- Flat storage area
- 5,000 lb. tow rating
- Hit-or-miss remote tailgate release
- Bug-eye styling
- 270 hp not enough
The look of the 2011 Highlander was freshened, but it will never win any beauty contests. Inside, the redo is more beneficial. Three rows of seats are now standard in a ll models. Bulky items can be loaded easily onto a flat load surface after the second and third row seats are stowed in the floor.
The Highlander’s cabin is so comfortable and fully equipped that it makes you feel like you never left home. The front seats loft you above the mean streets and permit you to survey the road ahead with an aristocratic, studied indifference. The interior is quiet, the furnishings subdued but handsome, the bevy of techno-tools at your disposal daunting. The voice activated touch screen DVD Navigation system awaits your bidding, and the 9-speaker JBL audio sounds splendid when playing standard XM satellite radio. The 2011 LTD is the first Highlander to offer music streaming through Bluetooth wireless technology. If you’re more inclined to enjoy gadget fidgeting than driving, the Highlander is the perfect balm for your attention deficit disorder.
