The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevy Traverse is a smooth and comfortable alternative to the minivan or full-size SUV. The 2016 Toyota Highlander isn't all that exciting to look at or to drive, but it's very versatile and handsome enough to be a great minivan alternative.
