2013 Toyota Review - New Toyota Highlander, Just as i used to be protesting regarding however i actually dislike being hoisted behind the wheel of a full-size-ish SUV, I realize myself happy with however this 2013 Toyota Highlander restricted drives. Place foot in mouth currently.
Despite its cubic look, it did not drive like some lumbering hunk of metal being pushed down the road. It truly got up to hurry adequately for my commuter drive, and whereas the breaks did not bite the maximum amount as i might have likeable, they still did a fine job swiftness this monster down. The Highlander is unstable, thus do not expect any beautiful cornering maneuvers, however I had no drawback ever-changing lanes or on the move alternative cars on the road.
The Highlander truly does not feel too high once hopping behind the wheel and its height is possibly little-kid friendly. Plus, there's lots of space for 6 passengers to unfolded and acquire snug.
The interior quality does not compare to the popular Ford person, with exhausting plastics and a dated tone on the wood veneer, however some consumers might like a cleaner-looking interior instead of the Microsoft-heavy Fords. Of course, which will all be remedied once the new Highlander arrives for the 2014 model year. Still, it had been nice to induce a refresher within the current model before the new one gets here.
