2016 Toyota Highlander Review

Life is hectic enough why not make the journey smoother? The 2016 Toyota Highlander was built for your busy family. With great fuel economy seating for up to 8 and a versatile cargo space there’s room for everything your day demands. Plus with the convenient tech you love life’s curveballs are never a problem. There are 4 models starting at $29 990 for the LE; and ending at the Limited for just over $40 000. Highlander is all about getting everyone there comfortably and conveniently. From the available conversation mirror for you to the rear-seat entertainment for your kids long trips feel short. In the Highlander there’s no wasted space. Accommodate crew and cargo with 60/40 split third-row seats a height-adjustable power liftgate and more. Plus it surrounds your family in safety so you can drive with peace of mind. Design a Highlander all your own with lots of color and trim options. The 2016 Toyota Highlander can handle any family adventure.
Packed with space and technology Highlander fits your world. Available heated and ventilated front seats are just another reason they’ll be calling “shotgun!” 60/40 split third-row seats give you the flexible space you need to accommodate any cargo. Entune Audio Bluetooth SiriusXM and more all make for a powerful entertainment system. Plus a standard backup camera is a must-have convenience when backing into tight parking spaces.
Highlander’s standard and available safety features give you added peace of mind on the road. Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert use radar technology to alert you of approaching vehicles the Lane Departure Alert will help keep you from drifting out of your lane. The Pre-Collision System alerts you if a collision is imminent even applying the brakes to help reduce impact.
In a Highlander the journey is just as fun as the destination. Choose between 2 smart engines and enjoy every efficient mile with up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway. The 6-speed automatic transmission offers impressive acceleration. Plus the available 5 000-pound towing capacity means you can take along even more when adventure calls.
