Toyota Highlander Overview

The midsized Highlander SUV handles responsively, the ride is steady and absorbent, and interior space is generous. A wide third row allows seating for eight, or seven with optional second-row captain's chairs. The smooth and punchy 3.5-liter V6 is matched to a six-speed automatic. The Hybrid version uses the powerful V6 of the regular Highlander, shifts through a CVT, and adds a hybrid battery pack and three electric motors. In our tests the AWD V6 averaged 20-mpg overall; the Hybrid version got 25-mpg. It's a long reach to some controls, particularly the standard 6.1-inch touch screen. The Entune system includes a larger 8-inch screen. A backup camera is standard.
