The Highlander is very roomy inside, saves on gas/$$, and is more environmentally friendly than straight gas engines. The interior is comfortable and practical at the same time -- lots of compartments, multiple 12v outlets, intuitive dash. Quiet ride. To me it seems like a luxury car without the price tag.
This is a great vehicle that suits our needs well. The 4 cylinder coupled with the 6 speed transmission has been peppy, fairly frugal, roomy, yet capable of towing. We're getting an average of 22-24 which is good, but we have yet to see 27 mpg EPA hwy rating. This one has the tow prep package (rated to 3,500#) - we haven't pulled that, but with a load of 6 passengers + trailer (about 1,000#) it handled a long steep grade into the NC mountains acceptably. Note that the 2nd seat in the middle row is not for a full sized person and when you have the 3rd seat up, there is very little storage - but, 6 adults can be comfortable - 4 with ample storage. It's not a minivan (we have one) but can step up to people hauler duty. Sturdy roof rack.
This is a great car for a Colorado family who need good driving in snow and off road occasionally but mostly to soccer games, etc. We bought the 2013 because visibility was reduced so much with the 2014 redesign, as well as car got wider and wouldn't fit in our garage. Bluetooth, backup camera, third row split seat are all great features, and we love the brand reliability. The new smart key is fun but a REAL pain if you lose one - costs $300 to replace ( and no off brand or substitutes will work, believe me we tried!)
