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

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
Sharp looks
Standard active safety features
Comfortable ride
Spacious interior
Wireless smartphone software

CONS

Middling fuel economy
Just one engine available

Chevrolet has given its three-row Traverse a light refresh for the 2021 model year that includes revised exterior styling and a host of new standard driver-assistance features. Among them are automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlamps. An 8.0-inch display inside the gauge cluster is now an available tech option, and new upholstery designs dress up the interior.

PROS
Spacious cabin,
peppy acceleration,
fuel efficient powertrain.

CONS
Big blind spots toward the rear,
plasticky interior parts,
most appealing options cost extra.

The 2021 Traverse has no significant changes. Part of the second Traverse generation introduced for 2018.

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 seems low-rent for this class
