2016 Toyota Highlander – The Perfect Family Vehicle

The 2016 Toyota Highlander continues to be one of the best family vehicles, as it just keeps getting better.

Usually the phrase ‘family vehicle’ translates into ‘kid hauler’. Although the Highlander is great at hauling kids, it is a lot more than that. It is a mid-size, three-row SUV that does not compromise on style, comfort, or safety. It is capable of anything and has advanced technology.

However, the design is what really sets this vehicle apart. Toyota has added a new center console that is large enough to hold a large purse, laptop, or many any other things a family may need. You can even put up to 70 juice boxes in the compartment!

There is also a shelf that runs from the center console to the passenger side door. This is a great location for putting phones, glasses, or other items as there are dividers to keep things from sliding around. There is even a place to run a phone charger, which is something that an active family would use.

There is a plethora of cargo space, as well with the ability for a 60-40 split with the 3rd row of seats. The rear window hatch opens without opening the entire lift gate, which is helpful for putting smaller items in the back.

In our opinion, one of the coolest available features is the ‘Driver Easy Speak.’ This feature allows for the driver to communicate with the passengers through the car stereo system. No more yelling over the kids!

Don’t worry about looking like a ‘family car,’ as the Highlander has the rugged look of a true SUV. This vehicle is rugged yet luxurious, with premier features for the family.

These are just a few of the many reasons that this vehicle was voted one of the best family vehicles by KBB. If you are interested in owning the quintessential family vehicle, stop by Capital Toyota to test drive the 2016 Highlander.
