2018 Toyota Highlander Review - Greenvale, NY

"The 2018 Toyota Highlander is one of the best picks available for a versatile three-row crossover SUV. Thanks to a comfortable and quiet ride, abundant standard features and a just-right size, it should serve you well as a do-all family hauler."

2018 Toyota Highlander vs 2018 Subaru Ascent

Serving Greenvale, NY

The 2018 Toyota Highlander promises to be a premium mid-size SUV this year, but it is closely followed by the Subaru Ascent, a quality entry into the class as well. Valley Stream, Long Island, Bayside, Westbury, and Greenvale New York residents will be able to appreciate the finer qualities of both models, but our heart rests with the Highlander. Toyota encourages you to "Explore Every Possibility" with its SUV, and they make everything possible with stylish exterior colors and sculpting, premium interior materials, and mind-blowing technology that promises to put you at the pinnacle of modernity.


The trims of the Highlander include LE, LE Plus, XLE, SE, Limited, and and several hybrid models. This selection is a huge boon for the usefulness of the Highlander, and we applaud Toyota for offering this tremendous selection of options. The exterior is more aerodynamic in 2018, featuring a much more handsome exterior with brand new curves and a brand new front grille that's going to make a huge announcement about your arrival. It's rough, rugged, and most of all bold. So far Greenvale New York has welcomed the Highlander with welcome arms, appreciating its upgrades and tempering that enthusiasm with appreciation of older features that stuck around.

The Subaru Ascent delivers 260 horsepower via a Subaru Boxer engine. And you'll need every bit of that horsepower thanks to the high-strength steel construction of the exterior. For its part, the Toyota Highlander gives Greenvale New York drivers a powerful 3.5 Liter V6 engine that kicks out 295 horsepower. The standard engine won't give you quite that much power, but when Toyota gives you a lower performance standard engine, they temper that with tremendous features like an 8-speed automatic transmission for precision driving.

The Ascent added a third row and instantly became a little more attractive to many people with large families and above average cargo volume needs. That doesn't mean it in any way compares to the Highlander. With seating for up to 8 people, the Highlander is second to none on the interior. They also give you five USB ports to give you maximum connectivity. This will mean a lot to families that use the web a lot. They've also lavished their NY drivers and passengers with acoustic glass that provides a quieter, gentler ride on the inside.

Standard is the Star Safety system in the Toyota Highlander. Traction Control, Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, and Smart Stop Technology are standard and free of charge because they're included in the initial safety system. And while the Ascent has some nice safety features, most NY drivers are going to agree that Toyota has really outdone themselves with some of these safety features. We've seen a lot of SUVs over the years, and very few of them have impressed us quite as much as the 2018 Highlander. It's something that we believe almost any driver and passenger will be able to be grateful for.

With a Bird's Eye View camera standard on your vehicle, the Toyota model kicks off its technology lineup with impressive tech features that both enhance the driving experience AND the safety of your precious passengers. And it just gets better with Driver Easy Speak, a hands-free command system that will enable you to control all of your tech features with your voice instead of your hands. That means a more focused driving experience that you just won't get if you opt for the Subaru Ascent. It's all an impressive suite of technology tools that Toyota is to be commended for.
