2023 Toyota Highlander: What has changed?

The 2023 Toyota Highlander, our largest hybrid electric SUV, gains new technologies for a more connected and personalised user experience.

2023 Toyota Highlander

It is the latest model to adopt the new Toyota Smart Connect+ multimedia system, which introduces a 12.3-inch touch screen high-definition display and added functionality including cloud-based navigation with real-time information on road events and an on-board voice agent. The cloud navigation can be accessed without having to pair a smartphone and with no additional data costs; the new Highlander is sold with an inclusive four-year data plan that also covers convenient, over-the-air system updates. It also provides an embedded navigation system which allows routes to be planned when and where connection to the cloud is not available. This also provides 3D city mapping, road sign recognition and fixed speed camera location information.

The system also enables useful remote functions, including locking and unlocking of the doors and operation of the hazard lights to help locate the car in a busy car park. They allow wireless smartphone connection via Apple CarPlay, plus wired connection to use the Android Auto system. All Highlander models now come with a wireless charging tray, relocated in the front console for easier use. 

The driver’s instrument display has undergone a full redesign in the 2023 Toyota Highlander with the introduction of a new 12.3-inch digital combimeter that provides easy-to-read information and intuitive operation. Also new for 2023 are 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels.
