Highlander Expert Reviews

With standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P), three rows of seating, and an optional V6 engine, the Highlander has something for everyone! Don’t just take our word for it:

  • Kelley Blue Book – “The 2019 Toyota Highlander is among the most recommendable crossover SUVs for busy families. With three rows and seating for seven or eight passengers depending on configuration, the Highlander is roomy, versatile and easy to drive and live with.”
  • Edmunds – “The 2019 Toyota Highlander is your quintessential three-row family mover. With comfortable seating, plenty of standard safety features, a strong V6 engine and an impeccable reputation for reliability, the Highlander checks all the boxes for large families in motion.”

The editors of the U.S. News gave the 2019 Highlander an overall score of 8.5 out of 10, making it one of the best-reviewed models in the segment!

Choosing the Right Highlander

Each of the available Highlander trim levels has plenty to offer drivers and busy families, but if you’re struggling to make a decision, the recommendations of the experts might be able to help:

  • Only the baseline Highlander configuration includes a 4-cylinder engine. All other models include a 3.5-liter V6, which actually gets better fuel economy than the smaller standard option! If you can afford to upgrade to the LE trim or above, you’ll be well-rewarded for your choice.

  • Those searching for the best value would do well to pay close attention to the Toyota Highlander XLE reviews. This trim received special attention from the writers at Edmunds, who’ve highlighted the model’s “desirable extras, including blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and keyless entry and ignition.”
  • Should you choose a Highlander with all-wheel drive? Although the Toyota Highlander in snow reviews note that all models handle well, we think drivers near Glendale and Milwaukee will be well-served by a model with AWD.

    There’s one more option that we haven’t covered, and it just might be the best Highlander yet. With a 3.5-liter V6, an additional electric motor, standard all-wheel drive, and EPA-estimated fuel economy of 30 mpg city, 28 mpg highway*, it’s no surprise that more and more drivers are falling in love with the new Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Here’s what some of the experts are saying:

    • According to Edmunds.com, the Highlander Hybrid offers “Impressive fuel economy for a three-row crossover” and a “Quiet and compliant ride,” while being “Just-right size for many families”.

    • For the U.S. News, the Highlander Hybrid is ranked 1st in the midsize SUV segment! They write, “It has a high-end cabin, an abundance of safety features, a potent hybrid powertrain, and an outstanding predicted reliability rating.” We think that’s plenty to get excited about.
