The range-topping Limited model features premium perforated leather upholstery with fine stitching, a soft-touch upper door, and dashboard trim.

The interior of this SUV is very quiet thanks to its triple-sealed doors, acoustic-treated windscreen and front side windows, and sound-insulated dashboard and floor.

Additionally, the Highlander offers wide, cozy seats that remain comfortable and supportive during long road trips with your family. It has 40.7 inches of headroom in the front row, 39.9 inches in the second row, and 35.9 inches in the third row.
