What Car? says...
Remember the saying 'Go big or go home'? Well, the Toyota Highlander won't be sent packing any time soon. Even in the supersized world of large SUVs, it’s a whopper at nearly five metres long, and can carry up to seven adults.
There'll be no arguments over which engine to have under that vast bonnet because there can be only one – a 2.5-litre petrol connected to a hybrid system. It can use energy normally wasted when slowing down to top up a small battery, which in turn powers an electric motor with the aim of improving fuel economy.
