The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Toyota Highlander gets a stronger, more responsive powertrain for 2017, but the main strengths are the ride quality, the cabin refinement, and the space for eight. The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse has aged gracefully; it's still one of GM's best minivan replacements.
