With composed handling and a compliant ride, the 2014 Toyota Highlander has no problem holding its own out on the road. The standard 185-horsepower four-cylinder engine is potent enough for daily driving, but if you’re searching for more power, option for a model with the available 270-horsepower V6 engine. All Highlanders come with a responsive six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available.
You can seat up to eight people in the 2014 Highlander. The Highlander’s first two rows of seats are roomy and comfortable, but like most 3-row SUVs, the third row is best suited for children. Quality materials fill the Highlander’s cabin, which is an improvement over the previous generation. Cloth upholstery is standard, and some models come with synthetic leather upholstery or genuine leather, heated and ventilated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, and second-row captain’s chairs.
Standard features include a 6.1-inch touch screen, six speakers, Bluetooth, a USB port, and voice recognition. Some models come with an 8-inch touch screen, a 4.2-inch driver information display, navigation, a 12-speaker audio system, satellite radio, and HD Radio.
The Highlander is an amazing vehicle just like the Toyota Rav4 which belongs to the same SUV class by Toyota Motors.
