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

By:

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
Below-average cargo space behind the third-row seat

The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is bigger and more butch, but still every bit as good for a bunch.

Pros
Bold new exterior
Stout V-6
Spacious third row
Built for families like network prime time
Plenty of cargo room

Cons
Active safety is pricey
Turbo-4 further sidelined
No hybrid batteries, at all
Poorly functioning all-wheel-drive system

By:

For 2019, the Traverse returns with the same winning formula. Today's lighter Traverse carries over the same V6 engine from the last model, but with an additional 29 horsepower (310 hp). The engine pairs with a nine-speed transmission, a combination that helps achieve up to 21 mpg combined (18 city/27 highway). There's also a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but it's only available on the sport-styled RS trim.

Pros
Passenger room is generous in all three rows
Loads of space for any combination of passengers and cargo
Feature-rich infotainment system comes with standard Wi-Fi hotspot

Cons
Some safety features are only available on top trims
Quality of some interior panels and controls seem low-rent for this class

By: 
edmunds.com
