Toyota Highlander's appeal lies in its functional and family-friendly nature, frugal gas mileage and good road manners.
Overall, the Highlander combines the practicality of an SUV with the refinement of a good sedan. Year after year, this fact has helped it rank among the top SUVs we've tested, as well asl in our owner satisfaction survey. We heartily recommend it.
Most Highlanders come with a refined and punchy 270-hp, 3.5-liter V6. Coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission, it returned 20 mpg overall.
