2015 Toyota Highlander Limited at Spoleto USA

2015 Highlander and 2015 Spoleto Banner
The mica color of the 2015 Toyota Highlander is a smooth maroon variety and not a rogue of the color spectrum. The leather Captain's chairs in the second row and the the third row seating provides lots of room when traveling in masse to take in a jazz concert, or maybe when taking a family trip. My favorite seating feature is the front row air flow seats which can be set to offer heat in winter, or more importantly in Charleston, it can offer cooling!!

The JBL speakers come with the En Tune audio system on the Limited model, making the bass and mid-range settings more important to tune when listening to satellite radio. The panoramic moonroof opens twice the length of a normal moonroof, though the glass only opens the regular amount. Of course one can just cause the moonroof to tilt slightly if only minor air circulation is required.

The Cistern is an excellent concert venue
The 39th annual Spoleto USA Festival is an arts festival that is unparralled in terms of bringing together some of the best dance, music and opera talents from across the US and from around the world. Founded after the Spoleto Festival in Italy, a focus on the arts takes place in downtown Charleston for a full two weeks of splendid celebration. A 9 p.m. outdoor concert at the Cistern on George Street was the setting for the Wells Fargo Jazz Series and French folk singer Madeleine Peyroux performed to a nearly capacity crowd playing cover songs that spanned blues and other genres of music.

Luxury SUV dash layout
Third row seating creates lots of room
The 3.5-liter V6 engine offers 20 miles per gallon fuel economy and the SUV feel of the Highlander can still zip when you press down on the accelerator. The five-speed automatic transmission has a 5000-pound towing capacity. The safety features are significant including 8-airbags and a blind spot monitoring system. The remote engine start capability helps you to get the vehicle ready for when you have to maneuver quickly due to the summer showers that can take place in May during Spoleto. The list price on this Highlander Limited PLT - V6 All Wheel Drive is $47,671.
