TORONTO, Dec. 4 /CNW/ - Passenger car-like handling and control, the power and versatility of a mid-size SUV, and an innovative, future-friendly power train that maximizes power and torque while minimizing fuel use and emissions. Canadian drivers looking for all of that, and more, can find it in the 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
The Highlander Hybrid's powertrain was designed specifically for the needs of a mid-size SUV, with emphasis on performance, comfort, and efficiency.
