Exterior

The new Highlander has seen its silhouette transformed into a sleeker version of the previous model. The Highlander's length has been stretched 3 inches and the width of the vehicle has grown one half inch, giving the SUV a more sophisticated appearance. In addition, the side door panels have been reshaped and the roof line lowered for a better aerodynamic force.

The front of the SUV features a newly designed hood and grille. This gives way to the intricately carved fenders and wraparound headlamps, conveying a sharp look. There is also a redesigned lift gate that comes equipped with a one touch power controller for the ultimate in functionality.

Leather trimmed seats, high quality fabrics and wood grain trim find their way into the Highlander's interior. Drivers can also find ambient lighting surrounding the dash board and doors to bring that subtle touch of refinement.

In addition, Toyota is keeping with its standard 8 airbags and Star Safety System, which will include Smart Stop Technology. With all of these new features in tow, the 2014 Toyota Highlander will be ready to hit showrooms early next year.
