Experience Eco-Friendly SUV Power in the 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Near Elgin, Schaumburg, and St. Charles

The capacities of an SUV, the fuel economy of a car, and the performance of a hybrid come together in one rugged, environmentally-friendly vehicle. The 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is available now near Elgin, Schaumburg, and St. Charles at Elgin Toyota.

The Highlander Hybrid is a mid-size SUV that boasts a greener performance than most of its peers. The result is an impressive, innovative automobile that will take you wherever you want to go.

 

Award-Winning Excellence

The Highlander Hybrid Limited is the sole trim level in the 2016 lineup, with MSRP pricing starting at $47,870. Among the many accolades bestowed on the Highlander Hybrid, this SUV won a "2016 5-Year Cost to Own Award" from Kelley Blue Book. The Highlander Hybrid was also named 2016's "Best Hybrid SUV for Families" by U.S. News & World Report.

The Highlander Hybrid has received a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This rating indicates outstanding performance in crash test simulations. The Highlander Hybrid has also been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with optional front crash prevention technology.

 

Eco-Friendly Performance

Under the hood of the Highlander Hybrid is a 3.5L V6 DOHC, 24-valve engine with variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) and EV and ECO Modes. The Highlander Hybrid's Hybrid Synergy Drive system combines the output of the V6 engine with electric motor power to deliver 280 hybrid system net horsepower (209 kW).

This innovative SUV switches between gas and electric power for greater flexibility. Drivers can stay informed about the system via a hybrid system power meter that monitors the charge level, power consumption, and more. The energy monitor display shows when the electric motor is being used, when the gas engine is operating, and when the vehicle is using a combination of both. The Highlander Hybrid's ECO Mode adjusts throttle response to boost fuel economy. This technology also helps in low-traction situations, when acceleration is slow. EV Mode uses just the vehicle's electric motor, kicking in for situations like low-speed driving for short distances.

Finally, the Highlander Hybrid features environmentally-friendly technology that may save drivers a little extra money. The Highlander Hybrid has received a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II (SULEV-II) rating and achieves fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

This impressive vehicle also boasts exceptional roominess and capacity, factors that are increasingly bringing drivers to the SUV and crossover market.
