Benefits of Driving a 2014 Toyota Highlander Sport Utility Crossover

The Toyota Highlander is a mid-sized near-luxury crossover competing in a crowded segment where just about every major auto manufacturer has a hat in the ring. Toyota knows that for their entry to be successful, they'll have to offer lots of technology and convenience at the right price, to go along with their solid reputation for reliability. The 2014 Highlander plays right into this strategy with plenty of standard features, plus a bevy of options. Attractive new styling is the icing on the cake, helping the Highlander to stand out in a crowded field.

What's new for 2014?

The Toyota Highlander has been completely redesigned for 2014. It features all new sheetmetal and a new interior and is now available as a hybrid.

Model Strengths

  • Roomy, good ground clearance, stylish and technology filled interior, sleek exterior styling, available hybrid drivetrain and all-wheel drive

Model Review

The 2014 Highlander is powered by one of three different drivetrains. Base models make due with a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine making 180 hp. In this guise, the Highlander is rated at 20 mpg in the city and 25mpg on the highway. The mid-level V6 displaces 3.5L and makes 270 hp, while the top of the line hybrid uses an electric motor in conjunction with a V6 to make 280 hp. The hybrid Highlander returns 27 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, extremely impressive numbers for a vehicle equipped with third-row seating. The Highlander comes standard in front-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is an option for those who need it.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
