Let’s start with the interior measurements for passengers. The Toyota Highlander can seat up to eight and provide plenty of room for each individual in the maximum 141.3 cubic feet of passenger volume. Take a look below at how this spacing looks:

Additionally, part of the interior is the amount of volume available to load up cargo and other items. The Toyota Highlander provides folding seating in the second and third rows that allow you to expand the amount of available space.
