So far so good! My favorite car I've owned
This is easily my favorite car I've ever owned. I've just begun breaking the car in, but it has been great thus far. The Highlander Hybrid is the only non-luxury hybrid crossover that offers three rows. Depending on discounts you can get you will be paying a little bit more for the hybrid compared to an identical non-hybrid Highlander. The dealer tried to convince me to buy a non-hybrid because it will take you a long time to make up the price difference in gas mileage, but for me the additional power, over 300 HP, was the reason to get this car. I've been averaging 23 mpg, but I'm sure that will go up as I break-in the engine. Update on gas mileage, the hybrid gets much better mileage in warmer weather. The hybrid system is much more likely to run in all electric mode at lower speeds, and when the engine is warm. The CVT doesn't have great feel, but I understand why it is a better option for the hybrid powertrain. The interior is very comfortable, the 2nd row buckets are nearly as comfortable as the front seats, the third row is not very roomy, but it will work well if it is just for short trips. The technology of this car is tremendous as all trim levels come with adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and all the other important safety features. The JBL sound system in the upper trim levels is tremendous. The HVAC system works really well. The car lacks Apple Carplay/Android Auto and HID headlights, but other than that I can't think of a single feature that is missing here.
Economically silly but morally superior
We won't ever make back on fuel savings the extra cost of the Hybrid, but is oil goes to $90/barrel it will be closer. Comfort is great, highway drive is very smooth. I like all the safety features, remote start and cargo capacity. This SUV is longer (1"-3") and lower (1"-3"?) than the 12 year old Honda Pilot it replace. Great sound system.
A lot of automobile for the money!
I have owned Mercedes, Lexus, Jaguars, and BMWs, and to get all the options that the Highlander Limited Platinum has it will cost you an extra &17-20,000.00. This is very close to being a luxury car! It doesn't handle like the European cars, but it has a more subtle ride. Excellent warranty, and free service for two years.

The 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is a three-row midsize crossover SUV that provides a practical blend of comfort, space and utility topped off with impressive fuel economy. For shoppers that are looking for a more environmentally responsible crossover, this family hauler that can get nearly 30 mpg is a great choice.

Compared to the standard Highlander, the Highlander Hybrid's fuel economy ratings are definitely impressive. The standard Highlander checks in at around 23 mpg combined if you go with the V6 and all-wheel drive, while the Hybrid gets around 29 mpg combined.

The Highlander Hybrid has nearly all the same virtues working for it as the standard model. If you like the Highlander to start, the Hybrid is probably right up your alley. Whatever trim level you choose, the Highlander Hybrid comes with a 3.5-liter V6 that's paired with electric motor components for a total of 306 horsepower. Unlike the standard vehicle, all-wheel drive is standard across the lineup.

On-road performance leans more toward comfort rather than taut handling, although the Highlander Hybrid remains competitive with its major rivals in this area. The Highlander Hybrid also offers a decent amount of utility with its 3,500-pound tow rating.

Inside the Highlander Hybrid, there's a lot to like. While not ultra-luxurious, the interior combines plenty of leg-, headroom and shoulder room with decent materials and an abundance of clever storage solutions. And buyers are sure to appreciate the addition of a number of the latest advanced safety features and host of technology options.

There are essentially four trim levels for the Highlander Hybrid: LE, XLE, Limited and Limited Platinum. The Hybrid's trim level structure is relatively similar to the standard vehicle, with an impressive amount of standard safety equipment included on the LE such as lane departure intervention and adaptive cruise control. The base LE also gets creature comforts such as tri-zone automatic climate control. The XLE gets a few more niceties such as an upgraded touchscreen, while the Limited and Limited Platinum get luxury items including a 12-speaker JBL sound system and a panoramic sunroof.

Whatever trim you choose, use Edmunds to price, compare and shop for the perfect 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
