Critics agree that a smooth ride and a refined optional V6 engine make the 2014 Toyota Highlander a great family hauler. Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with US News Best Cars. Is the Toyota Highlander the ideal family vehicle for you? Let's find out.
The Toyota Highlander is fully re-designed for the 2014 model year. It seats up to eight and comes standard with front-wheel drive with all-wheel drive as an option. The base Highlander gets an EPA estimated 20 miles per gallon in the city and 25 on the highway which are good ratings for an affordable mid-size SUV.
The 2014 Highlander comes in four trims and starts at about $29,000. Reviewers think the Highlander's base 4-cylinder engine performs adequately. However, they agree that the optional V6 is a better choice because it's more powerful and refined. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models.
Test drivers note the Toyota Highlander has a smooth ride, secure handling and a nicely weighted, communicative steering system. Automotive critics write that the Highlander's interior has an attractive design built with high quality materials. They say the first and second row seats are comfortable and roomy, but note that the third row seats are only suitable for children on longer drives.
Most agree that the Highlander's touch screen infotainment system is easy to use and that the cabin has plenty of storage spaces. They especially like the large shelf under the dashboard which is perfect for holding cell phones, sunglasses and other odds and ends.
Standard features include a back-up camera and Bluetooth, while available features include a panoramic moonroof, navigation and lane departure warning.
