Love this cat

by Sweetp from EGG HARBOR TWP on Tue Jan 30 2018

This car is a true family car, not a mini van. Love this suv, seats 7. Middle seats are captain seats so 2 different ways to access third row. One of my favorite sub, plus who doesn't love a toyota

Economical, soft and easy family transportation

by mykecusa from Sacramento California on Mon Jul 11 2016

I agree with the 'Expert reviewers'. The 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is indeed a comfortable, pleasant ride. I find it sits above the traffic giving me excellent visibility and the drivers seat is fully adjustable giving me comfortable seating. My previous hybrid was a 4 cylinder and although it was a compact, it was sluggish and very noisy. This Highlander is bigger and heavier and is very quiet and when I want to accelerate, I do. Those are two of the biggest reason I like this SUV. The 'Expert reviewers' seem to agree with me on these two points. The 3rd reason finds me in disagreement with most of the 'Expert reviewers'. Most seem to suggest the hybrid is to be avoided because it is too expensive up front considering the low price of gasoline these days.I look at it different. I bought my last hybrid when gasoline was $4 a gallon. I expect it to be there again one day. Until then I am happy leaving a smaller carbon footprint when I drive. I also smile when my Scangauge II shows I am running at 34.0 mpg on the highway.

Hybrid that Produces

by MarkTampa from Tampa. FL on Sun Nov 06 2016

We bought the Highlander Hybrid 2016 and can't brag enough about it. As we really don't need it to take children around, it's perfect for the two of us and our granddaughter. The styling is beautiful, the ride smooth, and the gas mileage excellent. We were going between the Highlander and another brand and are happy with our choice.

Great ride! I have wanted one of these cars for over 4 years. It is all I imagined and more. Very comfortable and stylish. Great with the gas mileage.

All you need for an everyday car,

by Stuart from Yonkers NY on Thu Sep 20 2018

great car all in all, however long trips the seats are NOT comfortable at all. It is designed for people with a flat butt. The gas mileage is not good in the summer with the AC on

Our Take on the 2016 Toyota Highlander Hybrid

The verdict: The 2016 Toyota Highlander is a very good family SUV with three rows of seats, but the appeal of the expensive hybrid version is limited.

Versus the competition: The pricey Highlander Hybrid improves gas mileage by roughly a third over most conventional three-row SUVs. It has no direct competitors, and $2-a-gallon gas means it probably won't for some time to come.

The Highlander Hybrid is based on the Highlander; stack the two up here. Go here to compare the 2015 Highlander Hybrid with the 2016, which carries over with few changes. The Highlander Hybrid has standard all-wheel drive and comes only in the Highlander's highest (Limited) trim level.
