"Sophisticated, Dynamic Exterior is Sleek and Strong"
It was such a joy to experience the Toyota Highlander 2015 in Ooh La La Rouge Mica! This beautiful car stole our hearts. We know and support the Toyota Highlander saying, "Every Journey, Every Moment." That's how we felt about the Highlander. It was great for every journey and every moment of our road trip to the Crystal Coast of North Carolina to our everyday drives about town.
We loved the beauty and classic look of the Toyota Highlander. It seats up to 8 and has lots of space. We loved the roomy interior. We understand why the "Toyota Highlander Earned Three Spots in Kelley Blue Book's Best 15 Family Cars."
"The 2015 Highlander sets itself apart from its competitors with a distinct balance of style, comfort, performance and utility. Highlander offers families three powertrain choices, head-turning exterior styling, and a roomy and refined interior with advanced technologies and exceptional utility."

You know we do have two teenage sons, so it was the Stereo system was a lot of fun! We had fun rolling down the windows, opening the sunroom and cranking up the tunes. Cool parents for a few minutes. Sort of. :) Photographer Mom, we had so much fun!
Here we adventured down to White Oak River for our Kayaking adventure. The Toyota Highland handled so well and doesn't she look lovely on the water!

The Sun and Moon Roofs were some of our favorites features. It is so open and bright in the Highlander so you feel like you can see for miles - you can. The adjustments on the sun roof and the moon roof are very easy to set for comfort. It was sunny at Emerald Isle and our boys were wanting the back roof closed to block the sun and we were able to have it open in the front and enjoy the warmth and sunshine while we blasted the A/C. Everyone was very happy. :)
My husband loved the sleek trailer hitch. He said, "It is awesome if you need to pull a boat, pull a trailer, or hook up the bicycle rack!" Can you tell he is speaking from experience! We often take our bikes and hit the road, the trails. :) There is a full roof rack, if needed. He noted he gasoline mileage was great for an all wheel drive vehicle! The turning radius was a favorite for ease of driving.
Great console in the middle.
The boys loved the extra pull down sun screen on their windows. We LOVED the big bonus of the remote control, especially in the winter is the option to turn on your engine! Heat the car before even getting in!
At the beach, the Highlander was easy to park at the oceanfront property ground level carport. We travel with a ton of gear, including boogie boards. Look how easy it stores including our full size cooler.

They call it an ergonomic dashboard...Really great place to put phones, sunglasses without being difficult to get to, but totally out of the way for you to be fully functional as the driver or the passenger
Here you can see the fun we're all having at the beach in the Highlander. It is open and spacious and bright. We enjoyed it so much. Take a look at the beautiful tan leather interior. This was comfortable and easy to wipe clean. The interior was very pretty and gave a nice open feel.

We started our road trip to the beach like this - Starbucks for all. The Highlander has heated and A/C seats for comfortable temperatures. I love the heated seats. They are so cozy. I can have the sunroom open and a nice heated seat and all is fabulous.
My son actually noticed the "Mom Mirror" first! I remember using my rearview mirror to see our babies when they were little. Yes, this was long before the day of the carseat mirrors, etc. So this is brilliant and effective. This gives you a birds eye view of the entire care. Super helpful for Moms.
Technology: The turn by turn navigation was excellent. The GPS was amazing. The Toyota Highlander is very user friendly. It's a simple user-friendly interface. The GPS was also very accurate. Blind spot mirror and blind spot rear traffic cross is SO helpful! These are very specific and so reliable. I love this feature. The remote control trunk opening was is timely and helpful! Love this!
We were happy at the beach in the Toyota Highlander! It carried us well on our journey.
