Toyota’s Highlander is on the smaller end of the three-row crossover segment, but that’s exactly what families seem to love about it. With seating for 8 in a pinch, excellent reliability and a heap of changes for 2017 the Highlander is a better value than ever before. In this refresh Toyota decided to drop a new V6 under the hood of hybrid and non-hybrid models along with a new 8-speed automatic borrowed from Lexus. Then they added in their latest active safety systems standard in all models including the base trim giving every Highlander in America adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking. The combination makes the Highlander not just teh reliable choice for a three-row crossover but one of the best values in America.
