Toyota Highlander Overview

Toyota's midsized SUV is redesigned for 2014. Power comes from a 2.7-liter four cylinder or the smooth and punchy 3.5-liter V6, both mated to a six-speed automatic. The hybrid uses the V6 paired with an electric motor and a CVT. Front- and all-wheel drive versions are available. Handling is more responsive and the ride is steady and compliant. The new Highlander is roomy and can be had with a second-row bench seat or captain's chairs. Toyota's infotainment system uses a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen, but some functions are a far reach away. The Entune system's suite of apps has a larger eight-inch touchscreen. A backup camera is standard.
