2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Overview

The 2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid takes the best aspects of the regular Highlander (great utility, a flexible interior, plenty of V-6 power) and takes it to the next level with superior fuel economy.

Under the hood of the Highlander Hybrid, you get a 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a continuously variable transmission that works with a pair of electric motors. Combined output for this system is 280-horsepower, which are 10 more than the most powerful versions of the standard Highlander get. All-wheel drive is standard on the Highlander Hybrid, but instead of a standard all-wheel drive system, solely the electric motor is responsible for powering the rear wheels.

All told, this bumps up the 2012 Highlander Hybrid’s fuel economy to 28 mpg both in the city and on the highway, an improvement of 6 combined mpg over the normal Highlander. The Highlander Hybrid also comes with additional instrumentation which lets you know how the engine is performing, whether its operating on gas or electric power, and also reports overall gas mileage so you can keep close tabs on your fuel economy.

The exterior of the Highlander Hybrid also gets a few visual cues that distinguish it from normal Highlanders, like a unique grille, front bumper, and vertical fog lights up front. There is also blue tint on the head- and taillights.

There are two trim levels available on the three-row, seven-seat Highlander Hybrid, base and Limited, which keeps things simple. The Highlander Hybrid does add a few standard features not found on the standard base model, such as a power driver’s seat, Bluetooth® connectivity, a USB/iPod port, and a stowable second row center seat. Available options include navigation and rear DVD entertainment systems, leather upholstery, and an auto dimming rearview mirror.

Safety features include seven airbags, antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, and active front head restraints.

So if you want the utility of a crossover, but don’t want to sacrifice for it at the pump, breathe easy – the 2012 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is there for you.
