The 2017 Toyota Highlander ranks 3 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. With an unmatched list of standard advanced driver assistance features, the 2017 Toyota Highlander is one of the best values in the midsize SUV class. Its interior is high-end and comfortable, and there’s plenty of cargo space.

Pros
Lots of standard active safety features
Above-average fuel economy
Comfortable and quiet on the highway

Cons
Dull performance and handling
Cramped third-row seat

The Toyota Highlander gets a stronger, more responsive powertrain for 2017, but the main strengths are the ride quality, the cabin refinement, and the space for eight.
A somewhat more aggressive look, more power, an improved set of safety features, and a new sportier SE model highlight the changes Toyota is ushering in for its spacious crossover utility vehicle, the 2017 Highlander. The SE joins LE, LE Plus, XLE, Limited, and Limited Platinum models. The Highlander Hybrid is now also available in LE and XLE trims, in addition to the carry-over Limited and Limited Platinum.

Pros
Wide range of powertrains
Flexible second row
Easy third-row access
Good connectivity
Cabin quality

Cons
Design is soemwhat bland
Base engine is under powered
Somewhat busy dash design
Hybrid only delivers if you drive gingerly

For 2017, the Highlander receives a number of significant midcycle changes. The styling has been updated, highlighted by a larger, more pronounced grille and redesigned LED taillights. The V6 engine is new, boasting more power and better fuel economy along with an eight-speed transmission and an automatic stop-start system. New feature content includes the Toyota Safety Sense technology suite, which comes standard on every trim level. There's also a new SE trim level that features uniquely sporty styling elements and a retuned suspension for sharper handling.

Pros
Just-right exterior and interior size for many families
Standard high-tech safety features
Strong V6 engine with improved fuel economy
Quiet and compliant ride

Cons
Third-row seat isn't as roomy as those of many competitors
Touchscreen and other controls may require an extra-long reach
Undesirable base four-cylinder engine

By:

Pros
All-electric powertrain
Familiar and handsome styling
Impressive performance
Spacious interior
Customizable regen

Cons
Is 200 miles enough range?
May be too conservative for some
Too late?

The first Mercedes-Benz EV is deliberately free of revolutionary tendencies, but for many of its SUV customers it could be an introduction to a new world of motoring.The first Mercedes-Benz fully electric vehicle (EV) to be sold in Australia has arrived. It's called the EQC and is targeted at the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X, and imminent Audi e-tron.

Pros
Quiet, wafting driving experience
Loaded with cabin tech
Outstanding safety credentials
Understated design a genuine point of difference

Cons
Moderate driving range
Back seats and boot nothing special
Front suspension can get crashy
Supply appears to be quite limited
