Available with seven or eight seats, the Highlander continues to stand out from most other midsize SUVs with a choice of a gasoline engine (3.5-litre V6 rated at 295 horsepower) and a hybrid system (306 horsepower). All-wheel drive is optional with the former and standard with the latter. An eight-speed automatic transmission and a CVT set them further apart. As for maximum cargo and towing capabilities, you're looking at 2370 litres and 5000 pounds (2268 kg), respectively.
