Practicality Rules: 2017 Toyota Highlander Redesigned for NY

Toyota announced its revamped 2017 Highlander for the on-coming Auto Show in the Big Apple City. Well then, in the U.S. automotive market there are plenty of different crossovers selling like hotcakes. Due to this fact, the 2017 Toyota midsize crossover will be definitely welcomed there especially if dealing with several powertrain options including the hybrid one.

What does Toyota offer for the refreshed Highlander model? First of all, it comes to exterior alterations like redesigned front fascia and improved taillights. The car maker promises us six trim levels, and several different grille finishes for each trim as well including the Platinum and Limited trims believed to provide the most exclusive exterior look. By the way, the latter offers an optional Bird’s Eye View Camera mounted.

The main accent in the SE model has been made on a sportier more dynamic outside appearance with the help of modified suspension, unique 19-inch wheels and darkened headlamps framing. The most crucial modification is considered to be made with transmission; the previous version features a six-speed one whereas the current Highlander will boast the eight-speed transmission with a new 3.5-litre V6.
