The fourth-generation Toyota Highlander has been revealed at the New York motor show, updating the three-row SUV model for 2019 with bold new looks and uprated infotainment.
Built on Toyota's TNGA-K New Global Architecture platform, the new Highlander is 60mm longer than its predecessor and will offer a choice of petrol and hybrid powertrains. The 3.5-litre V6 model produces 291bhp and 263lb ft of torque and is capable of towing more than two tonnes.
The hybrid, which can be ordered with either front or four-wheel drive for the first time, combines a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors for a total output of 237bhp. Toyota claims it will be capable of 34mpg on the US-specific EPA fuel efficiency test, making it the most economical Highlander yet.
The US-bound Highlander's exterior now has much in common with the (smaller) new RAV4, which uses the same hybrid powertrain.
