Great (for what it is)

2008 Toyota Highlander Gregbuquerque - New Mex 10/13/2012

For the last 14 years, I've been driving a Chevy SUV. Things change, and I'm now in a 2008 Highlander Sport. The adjustment has been mentally difficult, but all in all, I'm happy. The Toy really is a crossover, not an SUV, not a truck. It's front wheel drive, with electronic AWD, but no center differential. This is quite diffent from the Chevy. The V6 is fine, but it's taking a while to get used to the drive by wire gas pedal. It does have What I call a manumatic transmission. You can easily downshift, upshift, but I wouldn't say the vehicle offers "spirited driving". It handles admirably on dirt roads, desert terrain. But it sits very low to the ground. The sunroof is a nice option, the leather is quality. The base cushion of the seat is not fully tilt-adjustable. Although the heated seats are nice, the comfort of the Chevy buckets were far superior. As expected, the Highlander handles, drives like a car-- this is nice. The steering is very responsive. The tires grip the road. I have not driven it in the snow, but it handles very well in the rain, in sand, on gravel, pavement. With the leather package, sunroof, it feels luxurious. Although zero to sixty isn't impressive, I've passed trucks on the interstate, and was surprised to find I was moving in excess of 110 MPH, with more power available. Although I keep comparing it to my previous truck, and could complain about the field of view, storage, clearance, lack of 4wd, smaller engine, etc, I am very happy with the vehicle. However, there are some things I wish Toyota would improve upon. First, there is a significant lack of storage space available to the driver. The glovebox is large, but the center console is tiny. Ahead of the console is a small tray where I keep my cellphone, Altoids, flashlight. It could be bigger, without the annoying center divider. The sterio display is impossible to read while wearing polarized glasses. The spedometer is blocked by the steering wheel. Although the wheel is adjustable, it could be moreso. Also, the power outlets are not in convenient locations for the modern driver, who may have a gps, phone, tablet, etc. And I clipped a panoramic mirror to the rear view. That made driving a lot less scary, especially at night. The back-up camera hinders driving over toddlers, but the mirrors are certainly necessary.

Great SUV

2006 Toyota Highlander Poolgal - Tampa Bay area, Fl 08/06/2012

I traded in a Mini Cooper for a 2006 Highlander. It runs very quiet and comfortable to drive for errands and groceries, and two trips to NC and the mountains were good. I have the 4 cylinder and has plenty of pep to get onto the freeway and merge in traffic. This car is easy to maneuver and see out of. The roof racks adjust easily when needed. There are plenty of small storage spots in the back for items you want to leave in the car. I test drove an 03 Highlander and it was equally nice but wasn't ready to trade at the time. I like the locking glove box and cassette player (still have plenty of those). I will choose Toyota anytime (my other vehicle is a Tacoma 4WD)

I leased this car for 3 years, then purchased ita

2013 Toyota Highlander June Yantis - Lake Geneva, WI 08/14/2016

It is so solid and comfortable. I formerly owned 3 Buick Rendezvous. I would probably still own them but they quit making them. Dumb!! There is just enough room to haul stuff for the food pantry etc . Also it is great in winter. I live in a hilly area and it works fine

Toyota Highlander Overview

The Toyota Highlander's combination of interior space, comfort, attractive styling, and dynamic handling make it a solid candidate for a family on-the-go. The Highlander is Toyota's midsize crossover SUV.

Toyota Highlander History

When introduced, the Toyota Highlander included a very tall interior and was relatively lightweight for its size. Over the next five years, new V6 engines were introduced including a mild-hybrid version with minor improvements to fuel economy. In 2008, a new Toyota Highlander arrived with a more impressive interior. The Toyota Highlander received an entirely new look in 2014. It's the largest crossover SUV in the Toyota line-up.

How It Drives

The Toyota Highlander is quiet, rides smoothly, and seats up to eight passengers in more recent models. The Highlander receives high marks for nimble handling as well. The fuel efficiency is slightly better with the four-cylinder engine, but not noticeably so; any of the three engine options will perform similarly and quietly when on the road.

Used Toyota Highlander Value

As a midsize crossover, the Toyota Highlander can play an active role in today's modern family. Built for comfort, convenience, and carrying a lot of passengers, the Highlander is a great fit for any family set on going mobile. The Toyota Highlander is often compared to the Ford Explorer, Chevrolet Traverse, Honda Pilot, and Nissan Pathfinder. Earlier models were leaders in the crossover SUV segment, and more recent changes have expanded its versatility and interior comforts. The Toyota Highlander offers a spacious interior rivaled only by the Toyota Sienna. In addition to its base model, Toyota offers the Highlander in a Sport trim that comes equipped with a fine-tuned suspension, a unique grille and wheels, and an additional stability control system.

Toyota Highlander Standard Features

The Toyota Highlander is a big SUV with seating for up to eight people. There's a four-cylinder engine, a V6 engine, and a hybrid V6 available to pair with automatic transmission. Though base models come with front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive is optional for the V6 engine models. Recent models of the Highlander are quite spacious and have upscale materials built into its interior.
