Vehicle
2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
Driving a hybrid in order to maximize fuel economy is definitely a skill. And that is why I had to give a lower "fun" score. Simply getting in the car and driving away as you would any other car will not yield optimal fuel economy. Read about "hypermiling" for more info. The power steering and shocks could be a little stiffer to give a sportier, controlled driving experience. The car leans more into turns than my 4Runner. The interior is definitely designed for luxury and comfort. The Synergy system and variable transmission work seamlessly to provide power when needed.
Favorite Features
The EV Only button, larger navigation/system info screen and 19" wheels made the top of my favorites list.
Suggested Improvements
Lower the price. $10,000+ for Hybrid system is a bit steep. Sportier steering and shocks. Enhance EV Only mode speed and distance. And add an driver activated 4WD or AWD performance when situation demands it.
