2007 Toyota Highlander 4dr SUV AWD w/3rd Row (3.3L 6cyl 5A)
We were initially looking at the RAV4. It is a nice vehicle, but it doesn't come close the Highlander in terms of comfort and value. We got a V6 with 4 wheel drive and a 3rd seat for the price of a RAV4 with a V6. I think they are dealing on these because of the 6 year old body style. The ride is firm yet smooth and the handling is very carlike. The package that we bought has all of the options we wanted without the leather and other things we didn't need. This thing goes like crazy in the snow and didn't misstep when going up a steep, snow covered dirt road. Thoroughly impressed.
Sunroof and front seat comfort. Handling and sitting up higher than a car.
Outside temperature display on the standard models. Bigger factory tires and wheels. Telescoping steering wheel.
