The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2016 Chevy Traverse is a smooth and comfortable alternative to the minivan or full-size SUV.
