2019 Toyota Highlander vs. Its Competition

2019 Toyota Highlander

The three-row crossover SUV market is competitive as any in the industry, with a wide range of offerings for any garage.

The Subaru Ascent is a brand-new entry that offers all-wheel drive and that popular Subaru character right out of the box.

The Volkswagen Atlas and Chevrolet Traverse are also fresh designs that offer loads of interior space but solid driving dynamics despite their size.

The Ford Explorer continues to be a popular option but is beginning to show its age, especially when it comes to its crash-test scores.The Honda Pilot has just been updated and remains one of the most well-rounded vehicles out there.
