Car and Driver

“Inconspicuous and sensible, the Highlander has what it takes to haul up to eight in quiet comfort. […] The Highlander…[is] more focused on interior niceties and storage.”

You’ll have a lot of room to work with inside the Toyota Highlander, including standard seating for up to eight passengers in most trims, and an available seven-passenger setup with second-row captain’s chairs. The total interior volume on the Highlander is 158.7 cubic feet, including a max cargo area of 83.7 cubic feet.

The Car Connection

“The Toyota Highlander gets a stronger, more responsive powertrain for 2017, but the main strengths are the ride quality, the cabin refinement, and the space for eight.”

There’s a lot more than just space inside the cabin of the Highlander. There are plenty of high-tech features on offer, including the Entune Audio Plus system with satellite radio, HD Radio, and integrated navigation, as well as the Toyota Safety Sense P package of driver assist features.


“If you’re looking for a do-it-all family vehicle, you can’t go wrong with the 2017 Toyota Highlander. We rank it at the top of the class for its versatile interior, overall comfort, and strong V6 engine. We’re confident you’ll agree.”

Opt to the available 3.5L V6 engine and you’ll get a commanding output of 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. This power can be sent to all four wheels if you opt for the available all-wheel drive system.

Kelley Blue Book

“The Highlander is a solidly established family hauler, slotting in at the bigger end of Toyota’s growing SUV lineup with seats for seven or eight, lots of small object storage, lots of family-oriented features, lots of safety technology, the only hybrid option in its class, and attractive styling.”

That’s a lot of praise, so let’s just look one aspect on this one—small object storage. On top of letting you haul a lot of people and lots of luggage, the Highlander also has practical ergonomics and practically designed storage compartments that let you and your family store plenty of goods.
