Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For the 2021 model year, Hyundai has made no changes to the Nexo. It carries over from 2020 with all the same features and options.

Pros
Adequate driving range per fill-up,
cargo-friendly cabin,
generous standard warranty.

Cons
Twice the price of a similarly-sized gas-powered SUV,
only sold in California,
limited hydrogen fueling stations.

The Nexo carries over unchanged for 2021.

Pros

Smooth, silent and torquey drive qualities of an electric vehicle
Practical SUV-like body style

Cons
Only available in select areas of California
Hydrogen availability is limited

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.

Pros
