The 2.7-liter four-cylinder, making 185 horsepower in price-leading Highlander LE models, performs adequately with a mild load.Pack in the whole family, though, and it's overtaxed.
Highlander Hybrid models team the V6 with a continuously variable transmission (eCVT) and all-wheel drive, for 280 horsepower total output.Because they're some 350 pounds heavier, Highlander Hybrids accelerate relatively slowly.Hybrids come only in top Limited or Limited Platinum trim.

Driving impressions by Bengt Halvorson, The Car Connection.James M.Flammang contributed to this report.
The Toyota Highlander looks a bit more SUV-like than many crossover competitors.Just consider the gaping grille, as well as the prominent wheelwells and door sills, signs that suggest ruggedness.
Externally, the Highlander occupies an ambiguous area between all-out SUVs and more dapper, carlike wagons.This, at a time when most larger crossovers, such as the Ford Flex and Hyundai Santa Fe, have been moving in the tall-car direction.
While some critics dismiss the Highlander as bland, its design has improved in recent years.At 191.1 inches in length, the Highlander is significantly smaller than the Nissan Pathfinder.
Conversely, the cabin is strictly carlike, and it's a visually appealing mingling of textures and lines.Impressive refinement approaches the qualities of a luxury vehicle, including rich soft-touch materials.
Navigation systems feature a large touchscreen, but many functions use solid buttons, which is good.Instruments are large.A large, useful storage shelf runs along the lower dashboard.
Seats are comfortable, making it easy to enjoy the smooth, quiet Highlander ride.Driver visibility is helped by large rear-quarter windows and repositioned pillars.
The second row may have either a three-person reclining split bench, or twin captain's chairs.Second-row headroom is limited by the standard sunroof.
Though wide, the three-person rear bench is short on headroom; but it folds flat.Cargo space totals 13.8 cubic feet behind the third row, with a maximum of 83.7 cubic feet.

Tossing out minivans and V8-powered toy box-hauling behemoths, the Highlander is likely the sweet spot for most.
There's also the handsome-looking V8-powered Dodge Durango or the three-row Hyundai Santa Fe, which stacks up nicely against the Highlander across the board. But the Highlander has history and the Toyota nameplate on its side, and it's one of our top picks
you'll find easy-to-use controls, including knobs for the main radio functions, and for the climate controls below them. A huge center console can hold 58 standard-size juice boxes, perfect for keeping anybody seated in the comfortable second row or kids-only third row adequately hydrated.
