Time 7:16 am, December 3, 2020

Toyota has confirmed it’ll be bringing its Highlander SUV to the UK.

Available from January 1, 2021 and with deliveries following in March, it’ll be the first time the fourth-generation Highlander has been on sale in the UK – previously it has been only on offer in North American and select European markets.

The Highlander will come in two trims: The £50,595 Excel gets 20-inch wheels, a premium sound system and three-zone climate control, while the £52,275 Excel Premium adds a panoramic roof, heated rear seats and a head-up display.

Only one engine will be available, though – a petrol-hybrid with four-wheel drive.

Toyota has also priced up its RAV4 plug-in hybrid (pictured top) with the range starting from £47,395 when the car goes on sale in January.

The plug-in also comes in two trims – Dynamic and Dynamic Premium. The former adds 19-inch machined alloy wheels, a nine-inch multimedia touchscreen and heated front and rear seats.

The latter, meanwhile, brings black leather upholstery, a panoramic roof and head-up display. Prices for the RAV4 in Dynamic Premium specification start from £50,895.

The RAV4’s hybrid set-up puts out 302bhp making it the most powerful RAV4 on sale, and there’s a 46-mile pure electric range. Toyota also claims that the RAV4 will return up to 282mpg while emitting 22g/km CO2.
