2017 Toyota Highlander Delivers A Low Blow To Honda Pilot

By  | 

The 2017 Toyota Highlander delivered a low blow to the Honda Pilot as it comes with superb looks and this is something that the Pilot cannot compete against. Another thing in favour of the Highlander and not the Pilot is the hybrid variation.

When a vehicle typically comes our way with a refresh the price tag rises. This isn’t going to happen with the 2017 Toyota Highlander despite the vehicle coming with new looks and plenty of new equipment. In some cases the price of the vehicle has come down to lower than it was before.

The Toyota Highlander was seen at the New York Auto Show and it came with many improvements on the front and in the cabin. It comes with the 3.5 litre V6 engine along with 263 torque and eight speed gearing.

If you go for the LE and above trim of the Toyota Highlander you get Stop and Start technology. The vehicle is offered with six cylinder hybrid engine along with electric motor, offering a total of 306 horsepower. The green versions come with all-wheel drive but the rest come in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

The 2017 Toyota Highlander is packed with plenty of equipment and this includes the backup camera and the Safety Sense P driver assistance pack. This comes fitted as standard on all versions and it includes lane departure warning, auto high beams, pre-collision, pedestrian system and adaptive cruise control.

You can get the Toyota Highlander Hybrid with assisted setup in the LE trim and this is going to come in with a price tag of $47, 210. If you go for the XLE version it comes in at$42, 270 and you save money on the Limited or the Platinum Limited trims.

You save $2, 605 on the Platinum trim as it is now $48, 820 and the Limited saves you $£, 110 as it comes in at $45, 700. But which version would you choose if you were going for the Toyota Highlander?
