Shopping for a family vehicle can be frustrating as there are so many choices on the market these days. Well the three-row Toyota Highlander can really make your shopping a lot easier. Check out these five reasons your family will more than appreciate the reliable 2017 Toyota Highlander.

Efficient V6

There is big talk about the available V6 engine choice. It delivers 295 horsepower and returns an impressive 27 miles per gallon on the highway with front-wheel drive. The base 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine returns around 24 miles hwy. When you compare those mpg numbers against one another, and the fact that the optional V6 gives you over a 100 more horsepower, we say if you upgrade anything, make it the 3.5 liter V6.

Endless Features

When you buy a Highlander you get to choose from one of six trim levels, then you go from there. Want enough room for eight passengers? How about some cool captain's chairs in the second row? There is even innovative technology like a 360-degree camera and the available Driver Easy Speak, which has a microphone up front, so you can speak to passengers in the back though the rear speakers.

Attractive Design

Family vehicles are usually made more for function than looks. The beautiful Highlander gives you both. Up front, it boasts a bold updated grille and redesigned headlights. You also get standard heated mirrors and 18-in wheels, although we had upgraded 19's. Overall, the Highlander is a pretty sharp ride, let alone a family ride.

Premium Interior

Inside you'll notice some premium touches. There is really no need to consider a luxury SUV as far as interior goes, the Highlander has it all. We are talking high-end options like tri-zone climate control, heated second row seats and a heated steering wheel. It goes on and on with the available panoramic moonroof even some cool entertainment in the back with a cool Blu-ray disc 9-in screen.

Available AWD

The confidence you get while driving with all-wheel drive (AWD) is pretty amazing. The Highlander offers an AWD option, as well as a AWD Hybrid trim level that returns 30 mpg city. Another added bonus is the smoothness and efficiency of the 8-speed transmission that the available 3.5 liter V6 delivers.

Autotrader Says

We have to say the Highlander is a rare find. It has three rows, it's extremely reliable and efficient, and it's attractive. Put your family in a 2017 Toyota Highlander. You'll be glad with the choice.
