What We Believe

In a 2017 First Examination, we stated that the SE trim's sportier suspension tuning creates a harsher flight than in other variants with minimal enhancements to taking care of. Throttle response wasn't as responsive, as the eight-speed automatic always wished to upshift to the highest equipment and had a tendency to shuffle between equipments also while cruising. Off pavement, the Highlander did well as well as was able to take care of dust without obtaining bogged down too much.

In a 2016 comparison test that likewise consisted of the GMC Acadia and the Mazda CX-9, the Highlander positioned second thanks to its powerful V-6 engine and also roomy 2nd row. The third row, however, isn't comfy for adults on a long drive, and also some economical materials spread throughout the cabin maintained it from obtaining the win.
