Car Review: 2016 Toyota Highlander – Our Premium SUV 15/09/2018
Are you in the market for the largest rental car you can get? We have just got the perfect solution: a 2016 Toyota Highlander!

We have just taken stock of a number of 2016 Toyota Highlander AWD SUVs which are now part of our car rental range. These SUVs are very well spec'd including air conditioning, have heaps of room with 7 seats, and have plenty of power with the 3.5L V6.

What’s so special about the Toyota Highlander?

The Toyota Highlander features a 3.5L V6 petrol engine rated at 270 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive. Fuel economy is rated at 11.7 liters per 100kms combined. It also comes standard with traction and stability control, ABS brakes, front and side airbags, driver knee airbag, front passenger cushion airbag and full length side curtain air bags. A rearview camera is also part of the package.

Coming to the interior, this is where the Highlander really stands out by virtue of its spacious and comfortable cabin. Seats come in SofTex upholstery, second and third-row seating come with three-across bench seating. There are also plenty of tech tools and smartphone-integrated services, operated by means of an 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen display on the dash board.

Additional features include:
  • Automatic headlights
  • Heated exterior mirrors
  • Cruise control
  • Rearview camera
  • 6-way driver, 4-way passenger manually adjustable front seats
  • Sliding and reclining 60/40-split second-row seat 60/40-split third-row seat
  • Tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel
  • Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity
  • Six-speaker audio system with voice control
  • CD player with an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod/USB interface
Some things to consider

The Toyota Highlander is a big car and as such you will need to make considerations when driving in tighter places such as city centres, as it may be difficult to manoeuvre, and parking will need to be accounted for. It will also use more gas than a smaller car, despite the good economy for its size.

In summary, if you are looking for a large rental car that seats up to 7 people, you want the performance of a V6 and you don’t mind paying a bit more for petrol, the Toyota Highlander is the choice for you! Book our Large Preimium AWD SUV rental on our website today!
