Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

A refreshed front end highlights the changes to the 2021 Equinox. The makeover brings more distinctive headlights, a new grille design, and updated front and rear bumpers. Chevy also adds an RS model, which includes sporty styling cues such as dark 19-inch wheels and blacked-out exterior trim. Its interior boasts a unique shift knob, red stitching, and black upholstery. The top-tier Premier also has spiffier cabin details, such as French stitching and gloss-black trim on the console.

Pros
Tons of passenger space,
agile on-road behavior,
generous infotainment features.

Cons
Weak four-cylinder engine,
pricier than most rivals,
largest wheel size reduces ride quality.
