 Pros The 2018 Toyota Highlander is a three-row, mid-range sport utility vehicle marketed as something that you and your family can use in your everyday travels.

 Pros Imposing exterior.

 Pros Six trims to choose from.

 Pros It can accommodate up to eight people.

 Pros The heated seats and supports help provide comfort to the occupants during a long trip.

 Pros There's plenty of tech to tinker.

 Pros Quick acceleration for the V6-equipped trims compared to their rivals in the market.

 Cons The 2018 model year Toyota Highlander retains all the features of its predecessor with the exemption of some minor tech updates.

 Cons The room in the third row seats feels cramped.

 Cons The inline-four-powered LE is a bummer so either upgrade it to a V6 or get the higher trims.

 Cons Pretty average compared to its rivals. The prices of the Highlander models from the LE to the Limited Platinum easily goes up from the base $31,030 to $45,200 (8-speed automatic with FWD), so we recommend the XLE for you to enjoy all the essentials that the SUV brings without putting too much dent in your budget.
