Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

At first that may seem faintly ridiculous, but when you look at the Venn diagram of price, proportions and performance, the Ateca lives in a little world of its own. To get vaguely comparable speed and power from any other medium-sized SUV, you’re looking at spending around £50k+ on a Porsche Macan S or an Audi SQ5.
But although it may be marooned in its own micro-sector, that doesn’t mean it has a free pass. A £40,000-ish Seat – sorry, Cupra – has a lot to prove, starting with how it drives

Pros
Hot hatch performance with SUV styling and practicality

Cons
£40k for a Seat with somewhat unconvincing branding

The Cupra Ateca SUV is a brilliant family car that’s fast and great to drive, but you’ll have to accept its gloomy interior and boy racer exterior complete with tuner-esque branding.

Pros
Surprisingly nimble
Fizzing performance
Still practical

Cons
Boy racer looks
Dark, gloomy interior
A VW Golf R costs less

The 2021 Toyota Highlander learned new tricks to keep us entertained on the road, when we’re not asleep in the back anyway.

Pros
Better style
New sporty XSE look
Still practical…
...and fuel efficient
Great standard safety

Cons
Infotainment is still a headache
Exterior is a little busy
Pricey top models
Small-ish third row

The sporty-looking XSE trim level joins the Highlander lineup for 2021. It punches up the looks with more aggressive exterior styling, unique 20-inch wheels, black exterior accents, and a sportier calibration for the suspension. Elsewhere, LED projection headlamps are now a standard feature and all models receive additional driver-assistance features, including semi-automated emergency steering technology that's designed to help a driver avoid collisions.

Pros
Attractive design,
optional hybrid powertrain,
generous standard features.

Cons
Few driving thrills,
skimpy third-row room,
fussy interior styling.

The 2021 Toyota Highlander comes with a 3 yr./ 36000 mi. basic warranty, a 2 yr./ unlimited mi. roadside warranty, and a 5 yr./ 60000 mi. powertrain warranty.New sporty XSE trim debuts.

Pros
Comfortable, quiet ride
Easy to see out of
Good power and fuel economy from V6 engine

Cons
Third row is kids-only
