2010 Midsize SUV : Toyota Highlander
The Toyota Highlander is a crossover SUV, meaning it is produced on a car platform, rather than a truck design. This midsize SUVs offer a mix of car- and truck-type construction, V6 and V8 power, and up to 7-passenger seating. The Highlander established a fresh four-cylinder base edition last year. A 3.5-liter V-6 powers the majority trims. A gas/electric Highlander Hybrid is also offered. Modest tweaks, but carryover prices for Toyota’s popular midsize SUV that offers carlike ride/comfort, 5/7-place seating, the choice of I-4/V-6 power, and FWD/AWD in base/Sport/Limited trims.
Buyers can now add a moon-roof to the base four-cylinder or get a backup monitor on the base V-6. The AWD-only Highlander Hybrid SUV carries over intact. The Highlander is smoother than its ancestor and features even surface. The Toyota Highlander’s cabin is become quiet and polished with abundant storage opportunity and cup holders (10 in total). Standard gear on the base model comprise air conditioning, cloth upholstery, three-row seating for up to seven, a fold-flat third row, AM/FM/CD with MP3 capability, powered windows, door locks, and mirrors, keyless entry, cruise control and 17 inch alloy wheels. The ride is smooth and, as you would expect, car like.
A lot of buyers will discover a adequately optioned I-4 Sport–think the JBL sound system, with/without direction-finding system and rear A/C–their top deal. Available security features consist of ABS, traction control, antiskid system, curtain-side airbags that cover all seating rows, front-side airbags, and a driver-knee airbag. Participants to the seven-seater SUV comprise the Chevrolet Traverse, Honda Pilot and Mazda CX-9 SUVs.
