The Highlander has long been one of our top-Rated SUVs, notably for its cushy ride, comfortable cabin, and smooth powertrain. It has roomy second-row seats and a tight, but usable, third-row seat that now folds in two sections. The 3.5-liter V6 delivers solid performance and 18 mpg overall. A 2.7-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic are available on front-wheel-drive versions. For 2011 the Hybrid got a mild freshening and a 3.5-liter V6. It now returns an impressive 27 mpg overall. Handling is sound and secure, but not particularly agile and the steering feels vague. The easy-to-use controls and very good fit and finish make the interior pleasant, and cabin access is easy.
