Great SUV - no longer perfect crossover
By LeoM on


2011 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


On the plus side, it gets great mileage (29MPG so far), has AWD, seats 7 and tows a light trailer. For sheer utility nothing else comes close. On the negative side, the HiHy is no longer a crossover. My 2006 HiHy drove like a Camry and had seats and interior comforts like a Camry - except it towed my trailer, seated 7 and could haul a lot of stuff. The 2011 HiHy drives like a truck, has truck seats (particularly in the 2nd row), and is shockingly ugly.

Best Features

Extraordinary fuel mileage. Nav system with traffic. Ipod/Aux inputs.

Worst Features

More comfortable seats. Allow passenger to use Nav system while driving. But most importantly it is WAY TOO BIG - return to the 1st generation HiHy's Camry-like body/interior/driving style.
