The interior of the 2014 Toyota Highlander has a high-quality material. The former hard plastics that used to cover the dashboard in previous models have been changed to supple surfaces that have fancy stitching and seams. The gauge cluster is now more modern than before because of the multifunction information display that is situated in the middle. This can be found in the XLE and Limited trims.

The  6.1-inch central touchscreen in the base LE trim is slightly basic both in its form and function but the 8-inch in other models is more satisfying and has improved graphics alongside good functionality.

2014 Toyota Highlander Buying Guide

Before getting the 2014 Toyota Highlander, there are few things to take into consideration. They include;

  1. PERFORMANCE: In the 2104 Toyota Highlander trims, only the base LE comes with a low performing engine which is the 2.7-liter engine. If you are looking for a trim that is much faster, other trims would be the best as they are equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine.
  2. APP NAVIGATION: Even though the 2014 Toyota Highlander’s interior has really cool features, accessing most of them is not so easy. If you are the type who prefers easy access car models, the 2014 Toyota Highlander may not be the best choice.
  3. TIGHT THIRD ROW: The third row of the 2014 Toyota Highlander is quite squeezed. It is good for children but not so great for adults, not even adults that are small. Therefore, if you have a family filled with full-grown people, it would not be a comfortable ride for them if any of them happen to be in the third row.
