2018 Highlander Interior Features

As seen in the comparison above, the 2018 Toyota Highlander can seat up to eight passengers with the third-row reclining seats. Drivers also have the option of replacing the second-row seating with two captain's chairs and comfortably seating seven. To make sure that all passengers can keep their devices charged and powered, the Highlander offers a total of five USB ports throughout the vehicle. Back-seat passengers can also be entertained with the available rear-seat 9-inch Blu-ray Disc™ entertainment system that comes with RCA jacks, a remote and two wireless headphones. Since there are three rows of seating in the 2018 Highlander, it can be challenging for the passengers in the back to hear the driver without them shouting. To take care of this problem, the Highlander SUV offers the available Driver Easy Speak feature. This feature can be controlled on the touchscreen display screen and allows the driver to speak normally while a built-in microphone up front transmits their voice to the speakers in the back seat, so they can be heard easily.
