Three things to know about the 2017 Toyota Highlander

Published on August 31 2017

The Toyota Highlander has always been a very popular model in its segment. Indeed, it has always offered a comfortable and refined ride, but it is also able to stand out by offering since its redesign three years ago a relatively sporty and enjoyable driving dynamic. It is far from boring to drive, in other words. It is also very spacious, very versatile, and always as reliable. So it's not surprising that we see so many Toyota midsize SUVs on the roads.

Safety at no extra cost in the 2017 Toyota Highlander

One of the elements that make the 2017 Toyota Highlander stand out is its safety. Unlike its competitors who offer safety technologies only in the most expensive models, the Toyota Highlander offers driver assistance technologies in all its versions.

These technologies include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning with steering assist, Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection, and automatic headlights.

On the road, the 2017 Toyota Highlander offers a level of comfort that stands out and that really has no equal in the market. Indeed, it offers a steady, solid, silent and gentle drive. Conversely, the driver always feels in control, and he or she is always confident. The 2017 Toyota Highlander is indeed very well-balanced, and this is partly why consumers like it so much. It is comfortable, but not too soft.

Powerful engines in the 2017 Toyota Highlander

The 2017 Toyota Highlander comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine developing 295 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission is standard as is front-wheel drive while all-wheel drive is available as an option. Plan roughly $ 35,000 plus tax and fees for a FWD Toyota Highlander while the four-wheel drive models are offered starting at $ 37,995. It is possible to tow up to 2,268 kilos with the Highlander.

You can also opt for the Toyota Highlander Hybrid which combines the previously described V6 with two electric motors. The power is practically identical, but the average fuel consumption rating drops to about 8.5 liters per 100 kilometers on average!
