Review for serious shoppers
Fair warning, this review is long, intended to provide the kind of consumer details that professional reviewers won’t notice in their few hours with a car. I generally agree with the professional reviews, and if only looking for a 30 second summary, my review is not for you. We’ve owned our 2018 Highlander Hybrid AWD Limited Platinum about a month now. Other contenders included a Lexus RXL, Audi Q7, Acura MDX and Honda Pilot. While never unimportant, price was not the top concern and we bought which one we like the best. That was the Highlander, including over the luxury brands listed. Because we were comparing to and shopping the luxury brands, we ended up at the very top trim level possible. Comments: We’ve been getting about 25 mpg. While not the EPA rating, the EPA doesn’t drive 75 mph either. For a 4500 pound vehicle with over 300 hp, I’m hugely satisfied with the mpg. While many reviews single out the infotainment center as a “con”, it was a huge plus and primary selling point for us. I hate anything that looks like a tablet was stuck to the dash or involves a mouse, joystick, wheel or any other weird input method. The Highlander uses a touch screen, flush mounted in dash, as it should be. Regarding device connectivity, you can connect both a phone and another device for music (like another phone) at the same time if you want. Convenient to have the kids DJ from the back seat, while still keeping my phone connected. The system downloads all contacts, can directly control device music, reads your incoming texts aloud, streams Pandora or other content from a device. OK, it’s not CarPlay……but I think it’s better. Takes about a day to learn, but awesome after that. Toyota, don’t change a thing. The 5 USB power ports (2 in front, 3 in back) are a big deal and a “must have” for our family. Not all competitors had this. The 110 AC household plug is nice too….already used it to keep the crockpot plugged in and warm enroute a Super Bowl party. At the higher trim levels, the interior is luxury level. On par with the Lexus RX, better than the Acura MDX in our opinion. As professional reviewers have noted, the seat comfort is world-class. By far the best of any comparable vehicle we looked at. While I can’t disagree with the professional reviews that XLE is the “value” trim level, it’s not ridiculously more to move up. Limited adds $3K, then Limited Platinum adds another $3K. For perspective, each is well less than 10% of the vehicle price, or collectively, about 15%. For that, you get the following - upgraded wheels, upgraded audio, panoramic moonroof, surround view cameras, front and rear parking sonar, 2 person memory driver’s seat, power passenger seat, LED daytime running lights, heated 2nd row seats, heated steering wheel, heated mirrors, air conditioned front seats, rain sensing wipers, cargo cover. To us, it seemed very worth it, especially if comparing to and considering luxury brands. On the luxury brands, the option packages cost more than that and often don’t even deliver nearly as much. While not “required”, many of these options are a big deal to us and certainly worth paying for. We use them all the time. Heated second 2nd row seats…. our teenagers love ‘em. Surround view cameras and parking sonar, tremendously helpful. Driver memory seats – needed for a family vehicle where more than one person drives. Panoramic moonroof that extends all the way over the 2nd row – kids love that too. These are great family vehicle options, which is exactly what the Highlander is. Drivewise, the ride is mini-van-esque, which is a good thing (doesn’t drive like a truck). Nothing exciting, but pretty much what you want in a family hauler. While I wouldn’t call it an everyday 3rd row, the 3rd row is very serviceable for occasional use and more than met our expectations. When folded, it also looks neat and flush. Some of the competitors didn’t. In summary, the family features are what make this car. Specifically, all the USB power ports, the panoramic moonroof, the heated seats for everybody, the adequate 3rd row, the driver memory seat, passenger power seat, the ability to connect multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously. Most vehicles just focus on the driver. The Highlander focuses on the whole family, especially at the higher trim levels, which is exactly why we bought it. A month later, we’re still loving it and are 100% convinced we bought the right vehicle.
Great, but lots of road noise on some highway surf
I bought the 2018 Highlander due to the many standard features, great reviews, and lastly price comparison. No matter what the price, if you don't buy what you like, you'll never like it, so why cheap out. There are many great features in the highlander, nice interior, power, safety features. My previous vehicle was a 2010 explorer and I found it nearly overwhelming to test drive and compare all this new stuff on different vehicles. It’s a lot to consume in a relatively short test drive; it takes days to get to know a vehicle. I settled on the Highlander, considered Jeep, Kia and more. Other reviews pointed out there are many things that beep at you. Yes, but all are expected, seat belts beep if you take it off, lane departure alert beeps, if you have it turned on and change lanes without signaling. Also the lane Alert button is a "sticky button" and does not reset each time vehicle is started, so I only turn it on when I want it for long highway drives. Love the adaptive cruise, makes CC useable. Love the collision alert, have heard the beep and actual braking once when going into a turn a bit too fast (distracted by all the new stuff), it detected the trees on the outside of the turn and braked just enough to slow you down a bit and alert the driver. So I think this was an appropriate response. Obviously there’s a lot more to these systems that I am yet to experience. Lane departure will nudge the wheel in the right direction, but ultimately the driver is in control and the nudge I deem appropriate. I like everything about the new Highlander (including auto headlights, lots of driver legroom, good GPS, great looks, plenty of power, smooth ride, quiet around city, and more) except, the LOAD road noise on some highway surfaces. Need to determine if the Toyo tires are the cause or what I can do about it. I spent 8 hours in it this weekend on Highways and hated the road noise as 91N and 89 through VT seemed entirely like rough surface that produces too much road noise. The road noise changes dramatically with the road surface and I have not noticed/experienced this with previous vehicles including the2010 Ford Explorer I drove 142k with various tires. Also, the JBL speakers are not good. I have a good ear for music and no level of adjustment could make it sound good. The front speakers bounce off the windshield and the whole system is tuned too much for base. I turned base way down but still not good. I never tried the stereo during test drives , assuming it would be good enough and didn’t want to blast the sales person or spend the long time it takes to check all these things, stereo was lower on the list. I was wrong. I would like to hear other reviews/comment on road noise and sound system. The styling of the Highlander is also great, and I like the interior over all. Driver’s seat is VERY comfortable for me and adjusts many ways. Overall I like the Highlander a lot, but the road noise is a big issue for me, and if reduced would help the sound system. With only 2150 Miles, I’ve gotten to know it but will update this review and I hope it helps someone.
Door lock actuator failer
The Vehicle's good and bad are very much covered by other reviews. But...... I have 2018 highlander XLE that is less than one month. A couple of days ago, when I press key fob to lock the doors, it doesn't beep nor flash lights (Unlock is okay). I couldn't figure out what setting made that happen. At the first I thought it is just setting that I need to change, but further research revealed it is failed door actuator issue. By reading, http://www.landerfan.com/archives/door-lock-problems-toyota-highlander/ , this problem has been going on several years and still happening. I'm disappointed Toyota hasn't addressed this issue all this years. :(

Toyota Highlander vs. Honda Pilot

The Pilot lines up the closest to the Highlander in terms of price, function, size and fuel economy. It has a more spacious third row and superior phone integration, but the nine-speed automatic that comes on higher trim levels lacks refinement. Advanced safety and driver assistance features are standard on Highlander, but they're optional on the Pilot.

Compare Toyota Highlander & Honda Pilot features

Toyota Highlander vs. Acura MDX

Though both have three-row seating, V6 engines and an available hybrid powertrain, the MDX's luxury intentions and features mean it costs more than the Highlander. That money buys you a richer interior, more horsepower, and a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system that improves handling as well as traction. The MDX also has superior phone integration through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which the Toyota does not offer.

Compare Toyota Highlander & Acura MDX features

Toyota Highlander vs. Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 is smaller and less expensive than the Highlander. It only seats five and has less cargo volume. But you might like the RAV4 because it's slightly more fuel-efficient and maneuverable than the Highlander. Both are available with all-wheel drive and hybrid powertrains, so the difference comes down to whether you want or need the Highlander's larger interior.

2018 Toyota Highlander Shoreline Mist Limited Platinum AWD. 26/20 Highway/City MPG 20/26mpg Price includes: $1,750 - TMS Customer Cash - CAT. Exp. 07/31/2018

The 2018 Toyota Highlander midsize SUV maintains the model's tradition of providing a practical blend of comfort, space and reasonable drivability, along with a bit of style and a host of standard and optional features. Since the 2018 Highlander is carried over, all of the Highlander's strong suits carry over too, including a well-packaged interior, three-row seating, a generous cargo area and available all-wheel drive.

The standard powerplant for the base LE trim remains the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 185 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. In a big crossover such as this, its performance can only be described as barely adequate. The majority of buyers should order the optional six-cylinder engine.

The relatively new, direct-injected 3.5-liter V6 engine under the hood of the Highlander produces 295 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque and comes mated to a eight-speed automatic transmission. Its EPA-estimated fuel economy is actually better than the four cylinder's, too.

The Highlander continues to prioritize comfort over taut handling, although the Highlander remains competitive with its major rivals in this area. Buyers interested in improving handling a bit might want to test-drive the sport-themed SE model.

Inside, the Highlander's cabin, while not ultra-luxurious, combines plenty of leg-, headroom and shoulder room with high-quality materials and an abundance of clever storage solutions. And buyers are sure to appreciate the Highlander's advanced safety features and host of technology options. What's more, the Highlander is impressively quiet on the highway — it might be one of the most hushed SUVs we've ever tested.

The base LE trim comes well-equipped with many attractive safety and convenience features. The LE Plus and XLE models up the standard features, while the SE trim offers both additional standard goodies and a few sporty touches. At the top of the line sit the Limited and Limited Platinum versions, which provide considerably increased comfort and luxury. Let Edmunds help you find just the right 2018 Toyota Highlander to meet your needs.
