The Toyota Highlander was first introduced to the world at the 2000 New York International Auto Show, and, by 2001, it arrived for sale in the United States, becoming one of the first midsize sport utility vehicles (SUV) or crossovers to define an entirely new automotive segment. A hybrid version of the Highlander was introduced to the United States market in 2005.

Over 2.6 million of the first four generations of Toyota Highlanders — manufactured in 2000, 2007, 2013 and 2019 — were sold in the United States, and an additional 168,000 Highlander Hybrid models were sold between 2005 and 2019. Needless to say, it’s a popular vehicle with lots of room to grow. So, how does the 2021 Highlander stack up?
