The Toyota Highlander, or the Kluger in Japan, shares design and engineering DNA with the pioneer of the luxury SUV genre, the well-known Harrier. But while the Harrier combines elegance, comfort, and functionality of a passenger vehicle, the Highlander boasts a sports utility like performance that caters more to the active, outdoor-loving driver.
The Highlander comes with either a 3L V6 DOHC or 2.4L 4 DOHC engine unit. Paired with Toyota's VVT-i technology, the 3L produces a horsepower of 220ps/5800 rpm and torque of 31.0kgm/4400 rpm, while the 2.4L produces 160ps/5600 rpm and 22.5kgm/4000 rpm. The transmission of the Highlander is a floor-type 4AT with lock-up mechanism. The FF and viscous coupling-type full time 4WD engine and transmission layouts are paired with front/L shape lower arm distribution Macpherson Strut, and rear/dual link type Macpherson Strut. Depending on the configuration, the Highlander achieves fuel efficiency from 9.3 km/l, up to 11.0 km/l. Sports-Steer shiftmatic that creates the sensation of manual-like operation, as well as sports suspension come available in the S package, while 16 inch aluminum wheels come together with the G package. For safety features, the Highlander is equipped with dual airbags, brake assist, ABS with EBD, and seat belts with pretensioner and force limiter.
