Toyota Highlander Hybrid vs. Other SUVs

Let's explore how the 2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid compares to some other SUVs on the market.

  • Toyota Highlander Hybrid vs. Toyota RAV4 Hybrid
    The 2018 RAV4 Hybrid is classified as a compact SUV, so it offers less seating capacity and storage space than the 2018 Highlander Hybrid. Specifically, the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid offers seating for five passengers and maxes out at 70.6 cubic feet (compared to a seating capacity of up to eight people and 83.7 cubic feet of maximum storage space). Whereas the 2018 Highlander Hybrid is equipped with a standard V6 engine end electric motors, the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid comes standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and electric motors. Still, fuel economy for the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid is a respectable EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined in its base trim and 2.5L four-cylinder engine with electric motors.1
  • Toyota Highlander Hybrid vs. Subaru Forester
    While the 2018 Forester doesn't come in hybrid form, it is worth checking out if you're looking for a compact SUV that comes standard with all-wheel drive and other generous features, including a rearview camera, smartphone integration, 17-inch wheels, and easy-folding rear seats. With the 2018 Forester, you'll also enjoy an optional turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine at 250 horsepower. Even in its base trim with 2.5L four-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive, the 2018 Forester gets an impressive EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined.1
  • Toyota Highlander Hybrid vs. Honda Pilot
    The 2018 Pilot is also decidedly not a hybrid, but it is a three-row crossover SUV that gets decent fuel economy for its size; specifically, the 2018 Pilot with 3.5L V6 engine and front-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined.1 And while it doesn't come standard with AWD like the 2018 Highlander Hybrid does, it is spacious and offers some nice standard features, including 18-inch alloy wheels, a seven-speaker sound system, split-folding second and third row seats, and a rearview camera.

Reviews for Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Good as new!

My experience at CarMax was great! Not only was the service great, but my Toyota Highlander hybrid is in amazing shape. This vehicle is quite a bit larger than I’m accustomed to driving, but the safety features like the backup camera and the blind spot alerts really make it easy to drive. It has tons of space, looks great, runs great, and has super low mileage. I’m in love

- Meghan Patrick, 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Great car for my family

I'm tall and find many cars too small for me to be comfortable. This is not too small. It has a lot of space in the front and back seats, and is great on gas considering it's a large SUV.


  • Fuel Economy: It's a large SUV with great mileage
  • Interior Space: A lot of room in the back seat and also a 3rd row is available
  • Cargo Space: I can easily fit everything I need in the cargo area


  • Braking: The brakes take some time to get used to due to the Hybrid technology. They are a little touchy.

- Brady Elson, 2013 Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Almost Perfect

Runs fantastic, good city miles and excellent long trip highway miles. Roomy for everyone and very comfortable. missing a few bells and whistles I miss from my Infinity but such a better car all around, particularly as a hybrid.


  • Interior Space: Very comfortable and spacious for even long legged teens
  • Cargo Space: plenty of room for everything with seats folded
  • Fuel Economy: much better gas mileage than my last hybrid SUV


  • Technology and Entertainment: I miss the front camera I had for parking and I miss the heated steaming wheel at 5:30am. this summer I am likely to miss the AC seats but those are bells and whistles not necessities
