These days, life can be filled with challenges. Fortunately, the 2013 Toyota
Highlander is filled with solutions. Its versatile interior offers comfortable
seating for up to seven, and amenities for everyone. It provides an array
of advanced safety features. It delivers responsive performance, while
achieving remarkable fuel efficiency. And as you might expect, it offers
Toyota’s legendary reliability. All this, wrapped in a sleek, handsome exterior.
With a variety of trim levels to choose from, including Highlander, Highlander
Plus, SE and Limited, there’s sure to be a model that’s just right for you. In
fact, you can even get one with the eco-advanced technology of Hybrid
Synergy Drive.® But Highlander shines especially brightly when it’s filled with
one thing in particular: your family. 2013 Toyota Highlander.
From its roomy versatility to its
many thoughtful amenities, the
2013 Highlander was designed to
help active and growing families
get the very most out of life.

Whether you decide to go with the Highlander or the Highlander Hybrid, you’ll be
driving a vehicle you can feel good about. In addition to their different approaches to
power, each model also has its own distinct styling. But the choices don’t stop there:
Highlander is available with either 2- or 4-Wheel Drive and with a 4- or 6-cylinder engine.
Looks like Highlander has thought of everything.

comfort and versatility. Gauges are easy to read and controls are readily at hand. And
the advanced navigation and entertainment systems add convenience, information and
fun. You might just find that when it comes to spending quality time together, the sit-down
family dinner has met its match.

Highlander’s available Smart Key System offers you an added bit of
convenience. When you approach the vehicle with the Smart Key fob in your
pocket or purse, the interior illuminates automatically. The doors unlock
when you touch either front door handle, the power liftgate opens with the
touch of its handle, and the engine starts with the push of a button.

seats fold flat, opening up 95.4 cubic feet of cargo space1 for all sorts of bulky items.
And there’s stadium seating to enhance the sense of space for those in the second and
third rows. So no matter what you’ve brought along for the ride — passengers, cargo or
both — Highlander handles it all with ease.
Center Stow™ System
A perfect example of Highlander’s incredible versatility is its Center Stow™
system. Beneath the center console, there’s a Center Stow™ seat you can pull
out, lock in place between the second-row captain’s chairs and fold open. Or
replace it with the Center Stow™ console to hold drinks and smaller items.
Three-Zone Automatic Climate Control
With the three-zone automatic climate control system and air filter found in
Limited and Hybrid Limited, every occupant can ride in total comfort. The
system offers dual zone climate control in the front, a separate second-row
control panel, and vents for the second- and third-row seats, so everyone
can optimize their own cabin environment.
With the available power liftgate,
there are two convenient ways
to access the roomy cargo area.

In EV Mode, Highlander Hybrid cuts the gasoline engine and uses its rear
electric motor, saving fuel while reducing noise and emissions. EV Mode
is designed for situations where you’re driving at very low speeds for short
distances, such as pulling cautiously out of a crowded parking garage.
For more economical operation in normal driving situations, Highlander
Hybrid offers ECON Mode. By pressing the ECON button and then applying
the accelerator, you can modify throttle response to help reduce fuel
consumption. ECON Mode can also help when you’re accelerating in
low-traction situations, like on snow-covered roads.

every Highlander is equipped with a suite of active safety features known as the Star
Safety System.™ Of course, in the event trouble proves unavoidable, Highlander is also
equipped with a host of passive safety features, such as seven airbags1 crumple zones
and advanced seatbelts.
Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control (VSC)2
To help compensate for a loss of traction while cornering, Highlander utilizes
Enhanced VSC. The system adjusts engine power, braking and steering
torque-assist control to help the vehicle follow the direction it is being steered.
Traction Control (TRAC)
Using advanced braking technologies, TRAC is a traction control system
that helps control wheelspin when starting or accelerating on a slippery
surface. TRAC is supplemented by the Enhanced VSC’s steering torque-
assist control to help maintain appropriate driving force during straight-line
acceleration and to offset left or right pull.

At speeds greater than five miles per hour, when the accelerator is

one-half second, Smart Stop Technology is designed to help the driver
bring the vehicle to a stop.

features in the industry.

Hill Start Assist Control (HAC)3
When you’re accelerating from a standstill on an incline, HAC helps
prevent the vehicle from rolling backward. When activated, the feature
holds the brakes for approximately three seconds as the driver switches
from the brake pedal to the accelerator.
Downhill Assist Control (DAC)3, 4
Highlander 4WD models come with an innovative feature called Downhill
Assist Control, or DAC. Designed to help provide a controlled descent on
steep inclines, it sets a target vehicle speed of approximately 2-4 mph. To
help maintain that speed, DAC signals the brakes to modulate automatically.

not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver steering input can all affect whether VSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details.
26. Brake Assist is designed to help the driver take full advantage of the benefits of ABS. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake-system maintenance and tire and road conditions.
27. Smart Stop Technology operates only in the event of certain simultaneous brake and gas pedal applications. When engaged, the system will reduce engine power to help the brakes bring the vehicle to a stop. Factors including speed,
road conditions and driver input can all impact stopping distance. Smart Stop Technology is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving and does not guarantee instant stopping. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details. 28. Vehicle
Dynamics Integrated Management (VDIM) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver
steering input can all affect whether VDIM will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details. 29. All the airbag (AB) systems are Supplemental Restraint Systems. All ABs (if installed) are designed
to inflate only under certain conditions and in certain types of severe collisions: frontal and knee ABs typically inflate in frontal collisions; side and side curtain ABs in side collisions; Roll-Sensing Curtain ABs at a severe tilt degree, roll or lateral
G-force. In all other accidents, the ABs will not inflate. To decrease the risk of injury from an inflating AB, always wear seatbelts, sit upright in the middle of the seat as far back as possible and do not lean against the door. Do not put objects
in front of an AB or around the seatback. Do not use a rearward-facing child seat in any front passenger seat. The force of an inflating AB may cause serious injury or death. See your Owner’s Manual for further information/warnings. 30. Active
front headrests can help reduce the extent of whiplash in certain types of rear-end collisions. 31. Downhill Assist Control (DAC) is designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control and speed on steep, downhill descents. Hill Start Assist
Control (HAC) is designed to help minimize backward rolling on steep ascents. Neither system is a substitute for safe driving judgment and practices. Factors including speed, grade, surface conditions and driver input can all affect whether
DAC and HAC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. Please see your Owner’s Manual for further details. 32. The engine immobilizer is a state-of-the-art anti-theft system. When you insert your key into the ignition switch or bring a
Smart Key fob into the vehicle, the key transmits an electronic code to the vehicle. The engine will only start if the code in the transponder chip inside the key or Smart Key fob matches the code in the vehicle’s immobilizer. Because the
transponder chip is embedded in the key or Smart Key fob, it can be costly to replace. If you lose a key or Smart Key fob, your Toyota dealer can help. Alternatively, you can find a qualified independent locksmith to perform high-security key
services by consulting your local Yellow Pages or by contacting www.aloa.org
