Auto123 reviews the 2021 Toyota Highlander LE base AWD model.

After being given a complete redesign in 2020, the Toyota Highlander remains unchanged for 2021. Measured by size, the three-row crossover sits just above the Venza and just below the 4Runner in the Japanese automaker’s lineup.

We tested the Limited version last year and were pretty positive about this new Highlander. Except that it cost $54,029, which doesn't make it very accessible to families on a budget who need an 8-seat vehicle. We asked to try an entry-level version and Toyota came through with an LE AWD version. Price? $46,309. Yes, that's still far from cheap!

So what do you get for $46,000?
Well, you get cloth seats, of very good quality and very comfortable. Most importantly, they look like they were conceived to withstand the assaults of children and, one imagines, their feet, their toys, their snacks and their chewing gum. The fabric of the seats looks strong and durable.

For that healthy sum, you also get plastic panels throughout the vehicle. The dashboard, door jambs and centre console are all made of thick plastic that is frankly not very pleasant to the touch. Well, I suppose you could say they’re also there with attacks from the little ones in mind.
