Body style: SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle)
Segment: Medium SUV

The third generation Toyota Highlander (Kluger in some markets) got a facelift in 2016, upping the looks and performance.

Visually, the biggest change can be seen at the front, where the SUV got a big new trapezoidal grille, headlights, bumper, and new hood. Inside, the improved quietness, along with a soft-touch instrument panel and silver-painted, satin, and chrome-plated accents, add to the Highlander's overarching premium feel. High quality materials and extensive standard equipment underscore the renowned Toyota value. The engine range got updated for more power and fuel economy as well.
