Toyota Highlander: A luxurious Family Car to Go Everywhere and Anywhere

Pros - I love how it is so luxurious and it is a 7 seater.

Cons - It doesn’t work as well in the snow. It slips and slides a lot.

The car is a Toyota Highlander which I bought used. It was a great price of $35,000. It is a 7-seater and a perfect family car. The leather seats in the inside are so comfortable and nice. The design in the outside is so beautiful and eye-catching. It is such a smooth driving car. However, it does skip a little in the winter. Overall, I totally recommend the fantastic vehicle. It is a very smooth driving car and the maneuverability is fantastic! It’s a better family hauler that gets nervous as soon as it sees snows. I love how there is no middle seat so one can easily go in the back and sit. I also love how you can shift the seats up and back. Overall, it’s an amazing vehicle. The inside is very comfortable with leather seats. It doesn’t feel claustrophobic at all. It is black in the inside and white in the outside. It’s a really beautiful car. I feel safe driving the car, but in the winter time, it gets a bit scary because it tends to slip and getting up the driveway is hard. It is really reliable. I go to work every day with it and it’s so amazing. I laid $35,000 and it had like 15,000 miles on it already! It was a great price! The dealers were so kind! They offered to decrease the price a bit. They gave us an amazing overview of the car.

Toyota Highlander

Pros - Comfortable ride, good handling and hybrid drive train

Cons - Poor infotainment, less cabin storage and poor cargo space

Good functionality at a best price The price was very reasonable and it is more reliable which spends low in maintainance.The features were well equipped and the highlander gets all the good cabin features and safety in it. The cabin brings a quiet and pleasent ambience. I just love the way it is. The performance being a SUV was at the best.

The 2017 avatar of the Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine. It produces 306 horsepower in addition to 215 lb.-ft. of torque. For gear-shifting, the ride relies on the CVT automatic mode. Although the CVT gearbox is not the most responsive one, the HIghlander is pretty powerful and the interior has a quite good fit and finish. Let’s see how it holds up against its rivals.

How well does the 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Ride and Handle?

In addition to the robust 3.5L V6 engine, the 2017 Toyota Highlander is powered by 3 electric motors. The continuously variable transmission is responsive. The ride boasts smooth handling and offers better acceleration on highways. On the flip side, the steering might feel numb at times. Further, the regenerative braking system in this Toyota can causally be excessively responsive. 

The 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid comes with a wide variety of family-friendly features. Some of them are meant to enhance the ride comfort. The braking power is above average and ride quality is impressive. No matter whether the ride has some passengers or completely packed, it delivers a smooth riding experience as long as the road is ok.

How efficient are the brakes in the 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid? 

Being a big ride means that braking power is going to be compromised. This is exactly true for the triple-row 2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid with a massive curb weight of 4825 lbs. The sizes for the front and rear brake in Toyota Highlander Hybrid is 12.9 and 12.2 inches, respectively. The rear brake is the smallest in the competition.

Toyota Highlander: A luxurious Family Car to Go Everywhere and Anywhere

The car is a Toyota Highlander which I bought used. It was a great price of $35,000. It is a 7-seater and a perfect family car. The leather seats in the inside are so comfortable and nice. The design in the outside is so beautiful and eye-catching. It is such a smooth driving car. However, it does skip a little in the winter. Overall, I totally recommend the fantastic vehicle.

Best vehicle I ever bought!!

Not the best when it comes to power but is a decent SUV overall. CVT is the main culprit for ruining the driving experience but it gets the fuel economy so I guess it is not all bad.
