Pros

Like fast acceleration but think being green is equally important? Toyota promises zero to 60 miles per hour acceleration in about eight seconds with the two-wheel-drive Highlander Hybrid, and the four-wheel-drive model should be quicker yet - due to that additional electric motor.

Cons

The base-level Highlander Hybrid costs almost $7,000 more than a comparable gasoline-engine model, though the Hybrid does include some additional equipment. Like other hybrid vehicles, the Highlander might not yield real-world fuel economy at the levels suggested by its EPA ratings.

What's New For 2007

A five-passenger model joins the three-row seven-passenger version.

Used 2007 Toyota Highlander Expert Review

Long considered the gold standard in crossover SUVs, Toyota takes the legendary Highlander one step closer to perfection by offering a hybrid/electric variant that is both fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly. More complex than Toyota's other well-know hybrid, the Prius, the Highlander Hybrid utilizes a 3.3-liter V6 engine (the same as used by the gasoline-powered Highlander) teamed to an electric motor. On four-wheel-drive models, Toyota includes another electric motor to power the rear wheels. The Highlander Hybrid sacrifices almost no interior room in accommodating its additional hardware, but when compared with its gasoline-powered equivalent its price tag jumps a hefty seven grand.

Driving the Used 2007 Toyota Highlander

From the first instant you step on the accelerator (it's not always the "gas"), the Highlander Hybrid operates precisely as you would like. The drive system is so transparent you can barely tell what's happening. The gasoline engine runs quietly, and the transition between gasoline and electric power is seamlessly smooth.

The Highlander Hybrid offers appealing steering feel and a comfortable ride. Still, an occasional bump can hit harshly, but the Highlander Hybrid is surprisingly agile on curvy mountain roads, accelerating eagerly and effortlessly. Inside, its recessed gauges can be difficult to see on a sunny day. Third-row space is miniscule, but the second row has ample legroom.

Favorite Features

Hybrid Powertrain
Whether you choose a Hybrid for its environmental appeal, to cut down on fuel usage or because it's become a popular thing to do, this one performs in a truly satisfying and amazingly transparent manner.

Consumption Display Screen (if installed)
Half the fun of driving a Hybrid is glancing at the mileage screen now and then - with care, of course, if you're moving at the time. That's one of many reasons to order a Highlander Hybrid with the optional navigation system.

Used 2007 Toyota Highlander Interior

Three battery packs sit beneath the rear seats, which are 20 millimeters higher than typical. As in all Highlanders, the back seat slides fore and aft. A Power Meter and Information Display sit below the speedometer, replacing the customary tachometer. The meter reads zero-to-200 kilowatts, which is the equivalent of 268 total horsepower sent to the wheels. The gear selector includes a "B" position, which denotes regenerative braking. The Highlander Hybrid has electronic power steering and an electric water pump. An electric air-conditioner compressor control lets the gasoline engine shut off sooner even when the vehicle is underway, and it can cycle off while cruising.

Used 2007 Toyota Highlander Exterior

Visually, you can hardly tell that a Highlander is the Hybrid edition except for its "Hybrid Synergy Drive" badge. Distinctive 17-inch aluminum wheels are another cue. They hold higher-speed-rated tires, attesting to the Highlander Hybrid's performance capability. Full LED brake lights are installed for greater efficiency. Rear privacy glass and a roof rack are standard. All Highlanders have received some cosmetic upgrades for the 2007 model year, and these appear on the Hybrid as well. Based on the Camry platform, the Highlander uses a fully independent suspension.

Used 2007 Toyota Highlander Standard Features

Standard equipment includes Toyota's Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) advanced stability control (which includes anti-lock brakes, Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist), seat-mounted side airbags and roll-sensing curtain-type airbags. Each Highlander Hybrid also has daytime running lights, Optitron lighted gauges, cruise control, rear wiper/washer, power windows, a power driver's seat with power lumbar adjustment and a full-size spare tire. The Limited trim adds a six-CD changer, leather-trimmed seats, rear spoiler and automatic climate control. Toyota offers the Highlander with two-wheel drive or "intelligent" four-wheel drive.

Used 2007 Toyota Highlander Options

When the optional navigation system is installed, you get a complete Energy Monitor Screen and Fuel Consumption Screen similar to those available on Toyota's Prius hatchback. Other options include a rear-seat DVD entertainment system and a power glass moonroof.

Used 2007 Toyota Highlander Engine

The Highlander's V6 engine and electric drive system are derived from Toyota's years of experience with hybrid technology. Though quite complex, the system works seamlessly and performs even better than the gasoline-powered models.

3.3-liter V6 with Permanent Magnetic Motor
208 horsepower @ 5600 rpm/ 165 horsepower @ 4500 rpm (268 net horsepower)
212 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4400 rpm/ 247 lb.-ft. of torque @ 0-1500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 32/27 (2WD), 31/27 (4WD)

How Much Does the Used 2007 Toyota Highlander Cost?

Prices are considerably higher for a Hybrid than a regular gasoline-engine Highlander. In base trim with two-wheel drive, the Highlander Hybrid has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $33,135, while with four-wheel drive it's $34,535. Stepping up to a Limited boosts the outlay to $35,255 with two-wheel drive, or $36,655 with four-wheel drive. In any case, four-wheel drive adds $1,400, and the optional third-row seat adds $540. The Highlander Hybrid's popularity precludes cutting much off the sticker, but to make your best deal be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price. It shows the typical transaction price paid for the Highlander Hybrid in your area. As for resale, Kelley Blue Book expects the Highlander Hybrid to be at the top of its class, holding values even higher than the gasoline-powered Highlander.

"Nice, comfortable, reliable, affordable, friendly"

Just about everything.
Wind noise is noticeable, but bearable.
A great vehicle. I've owned it for 4 years now and have had nothing but good to say about it. A Mercedes it's not, but I can't afford one of those anyway. Leather interior with heated seats and fold down armrests guarantees comfort. Good heat, a/c and deffoging give comfort and a forgiving suspension only adds to that. It doesn't handle like a sports car, but hey, this thing carries some bulk. Mileage is mediocre, but then I'm not a cross country kind of guy, though this would cut that too, if one cared to pay at the pump for the privilege. Maintenance is minimal, like most Toyota products. Wind noise is somewhat noticeable (hence the Mercedes reference), but not overbearing. I really like this vehicle and highly recommend it.Read less

2003 Toyota Highlander

"Great car"

Great longevity! Reliable. Low maintenance costs.
Cloth seats. Driver side seam went bad.
Bought this car from the dealer new. Have done the dealer services as recommended. When it got to be 13 years old, regular service required all belts and complete new brakes. Those were expensive. However, previously only had done brake pads two or three times and this was first time for belts. Replaced water pump with belts simply due to the age of the car (saving labor if water pump would go bad soon). Replaced some dome lights, battery and headlights over time, and a couple of oxygen sensors, but no major repairs. 2003 might be one of the best years for the Highlander ... almost never see any of these for sale as used cars. It does run better on mid-grade gas v. regular. Gets about 15 mpg in local street driving. Tires need replacing about every 25K miles. The seam on the driver side seat pulled apart after maybe 7 years ... from constant friction of getting in and out. Replaced the seat covering with vinyl with no seam. Problem solved.Read less

"A very nice performing vehicle"

Looks, power, mileage, resale and dependability
Legroom tight for a 6'7" driver.
Well taken care of with hardly a scratch, this vehicle really impresses considering it's 11 year age. New yoko's with rotors and brakes give me assurance that it will be around for awhile as I like to own until repairs become a nuisance. Considering the new model runs around 48k, I'm very happy to own a solid 2007. Toyota's have been extremely dependable for me in the past so I continue to choose that brand. I would definitely recommend looking at the Highlander if you're in the market. My vehicle is the limited awd hybrid which I must admit made me question the purchase as I've never owned a hybrid. The mileage is probably around 27 per and the transition power from electric to fuel is extremely smooth.Read less
