The Toyota Highlander is one of the most popular SUVs in the market, and the 2022 version looks better than ever, if you want to find out how long a Toyota Highlander is, its dimensions, and its weight, continue reading.
Since Toyota sells many different trims of the Highlander, we are going to focus on the mid-range Toyota Highlander XLE and the Highlander Hybrid XLE, but don’t worry as the dimensions are identical for every model, and the only thing that changes is the weight.
We used the combustion version and the hybrid one so you can see the difference in weight, and we also used the all-wheel drive version of both SUVs since it appears to be a very popular option.
What’s the weight of a Toyota Highlander?
The 2022 Toyota Highlander XLE has a curb weight of 4,370 lbs (1,982 kg) while the 2022 Toyota Highlander Hybrid XLE has a curb weight of 4,515 lbs (2,048 kg).
It’s interesting that the difference in weight between the two models is not that significant, considering that the hybrid version has a battery and electric motors, which add weight.
The main reason for the slight difference in weight is that the XLE is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, while the Hybrid XLE has a smaller 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine combined with two electric motors.
The V6 engine is heavier than the four-cylinder engine, and the electric motors are relatively small, so the addition of the battery does not make the Hybrid XLE much heavier than the combustion model.
Dimensions of a Toyota Highlander, and how long is it?
As stated before, both the Toyota XLE and the Hybrid XLE share exactly the same length, width, and height.
The length of the 2022 Toyota Highlander is 195 inches (495 cm), while the wheelbase is 112 inches (284 cm).
The width of the 2022 Toyota Highlander is 76 inches (193 cm), and the height without the antenna is 68 inches (173 cm).
Overall, the dimensions of the Toyota Highlander are about average when compared to other SUVs in the market. It’s not too big or too small, and it should be a comfortable car for most families. Based on its size, we would categorize the Highlander as a mid-size SUV.
