2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Edmonton AB
Hybrid technology was just a dream before Toyota introduced the game-changing Prius, and now nearly two decades later the brand is offering a whopping seven different hybrid models in 2016. The technology has even expanded beyond small cars, with vehicles like the 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid in Edmonton AB. Installing a hybrid drivetrain on a vehicle like the Highlander gets rid of the biggest fallback found in most crossovers and SUVs: low fuel efficiency. The Highlander Hybrid now offers all the advantages of a crossover – among which the most important are space and power – while adding impressive fuel economy to the mix.
Specs & Features of the 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
How impressive? Well, the regular 2016 Toyota Highlander utilizes 12.5 l/100km through the city and 9.3 l/100km on the highway. But the Highlander Hybrid is able to achieve 8.6 l/100km city and 8.5 l/100km highway, making it one of the most efficient midsize crossovers on the market. When you think about that number in conjunction with the fact that the vehicle can cart around up to 8 people, while still offering over 13.5 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the back seat, you might begin to consider just how impressive the vehicle is.
On those occasions when you need to carry more cargo than passengers, you’ll be happy to hear that that number increases to roughly 42 cu. ft. behind the second row, and an impressive approximation of 83 cu. ft. behind the front row. That is a ton of space for whatever you might need to bring along with you, whether helping a friend move or bring home a large new piece of furniture.
As for performance, the Hybrid Highlander doesn’t sacrifice power for fuel efficiency. The 3.5L V6 engine resting beneath its hood is able to generate up to 280 horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque, delivering an enjoyable driving experience and offering up to 3,500 lbs. of towing capacity – which seems surreal in a hybrid vehicle.
