Toyota Highlander Models Overview
Overview: When this third creation of the 2016 Toyota Highlander Models came out in 2014 it had, like many of its customers, expanded bigger over the years. The first, 2001 Highlander provided a 3.0-liter V-6 or a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, later including a V-6 multiple and wedging in an optionally available third-row chair. When the second-generation 2008 design came it had obtained three inches extensive in wheelbase and four inches broad in length; the third row was standard; and the four-cylinder was first decreased, making the V-6 (now 3.5 liters) and multiple as the only powertrains for the first year.

2016 Toyota Highlander Models
The newest Toyota Highlander is greater. Still, 2.7 inches long extended and one-half inches broader. A four-cylinder reappeared (a 2.7-liter in platform LE specifications, with front-wheel, generate only), while a 3.5-liter V-6 continues to be the first motor and the multiple a big priced update. The 2016 Toyota Highlander Models plays against other medium/large three-row crossovers such as the Honda Lead and the Honda Traveler. For the purpose of this evaluation, we got in the motorist’s chair of a Limited-spec Highlander multiple.
Toyota Highlander What’s New
What’s New: The third-generation Toyota Highlander brought in new driver-assistance functions such as pre-collision caution, blind-spot warning, lane-departure caution, and back cross-traffic aware. For 2016, Chevrolet used in an ordinary hauling program on all V-6 Highlanders, ranked for up to 5000 weight.

2016 Toyota Highlander What We Like
What We Like: The 2016 Toyota Highlander Models is silent, trips efficiently, and has an internal considerately developed for its part as the cellular living room. The set is available beginning at the smack-in-the-middle XLE cut level, and places in the major areas are perfectly cushioned. The high middle system ingests a lot of things, but the large display that covers the bottom 50 % of the Sprint will likely see more use. Compared with the first design, the guiding is actually reasonably calculated, and the tires’ high sidewalls help the Highlander drift over lumps.
External exposure is significant, a backup digicam is conventional, and the full supplement of car owner helps (lane-departure caution, blind-spot warning, back cross-traffic aware, and flexible vacation control with electronic braking) is available. The multiple gets excellent town gas mileage scores of 27 or 28 mpg, based upon on cut level versus 18 mpg for the all-wheel-drive (AWD) V-6 but its 28-mpg street number is only 4-mpg better.
Whether that’s actually worth approximately $6000 fees are, something customers will have to pen out for themselves. In the hybrid’s benefit is that it has the same freight potential as the non-hybrid, which isn’t always the case given multiple vehicles’ included battery power functions and generate engines.
What We Do Not Like the Toyota Highlander
What We Don’t Like: The Highlander’s square-shouldered design looks like that of a conventional SUV and, unfortunately, the likeness reaches the vehicle’s managing. We recognize this isn’t a product anyone selects to go asking for up a gorge street, but if, say, you find yourself on an off-ramp that tightens up suddenly, the Highlander pumps over in the demonstration. It is neither nimble nor assurance motivating. The front-wheel-drive-only four-cylinder attacks us as useless, since its gas mileage (20/25 mpg city/highway) is hardly better than the FWD V-6 (19/25), a sign of how hard it has to work.
The AWD-only multiple, for its part, is affected with strange nonlinear brake-pedal feel (the conversion from power recovery to rubbing stopping is wooden), although the non-hybrid edition is excellent. The Highlander’s third row isn’t as spacious as those of the Lead or 2016 Toyota Highlander Models Traverse/GMC Acadia/Buick Enclave triplets; placing three seatbelts back there seems confident, or vicious. Lastly, although we’re thankful when any car maker products its touchscreen display screen with real buttons, the radio-tuning button is a terribly long achieve from the driver’s chair.
