Wow! Bigger, beautiful, fast, handles well
By happyrc on


2014 Toyota Highlander XLE 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Accelerates fast (3.5 L engine) and smoothly because it has 6 speeds.
I would guess 0-60 time of 7.1 like 2013 model.

- Voice commands for dialing a phone, playing a song
- Double wishbone rear suspension for better handling and wider 3rd row.
We hardly felt speed bumps.
- Shelf for cellphone, Bluetooth, hands-free
- BIG 8inch GPS TOUCHSCREEN and backup camera and apps like Accuweather, traffic. and computer is snappy
- side mirrors have turn light blinkers
- more space behind the 3rd row
- Sexy styling (looks a little like Jeep Cherokee and BMW X5) with chrome accents on
the roofline.
Integrated rear spoiler.
The door's body tapers in toward the glass

Best Features

- 11 airbags, includes driver's knee - traction control, stability control, ABS - sliding 2nd row seat makes it easy to get to the 3rd row - 3 ac outlets and a 110V outlet - Small turning radius of 38.7 feet - BIG 245/60/18 tires - Auto dimming rearview mirror - Easy Driver Speak to amplify driver's voice to the rear passengers via speakers - 3 zones a/c system controllable by 2nd row passengers - Fog lights - Daytime running lights - tailgate glass opens - 1 push window down for BOTH driver and passenger - Power tailgate - Push button start - sunshades in the 2nd row - garage homelink - heated side mirrors - sliding sun visor - 24 mo/24k miles of free Toyota maintenance

Worst Features

- Tailights are not LED. - XLE model does not come with white LED light in front; it is only available in higher models like LIMITED. - include mud guards
