2016 Toyota Highlander Edmonton AB
Toyota has been busy in preparation for the 2016 model year, overhauling several different vehicles on the lineup including the Prius and Tacoma, but to many enthusiasts’ dismay the 2016 Toyota Highlander in Edmonton AB saw little to no changes. But last year’s Highlander won several awards, so the 2016 model will still deliver all of the great power, features and immense capacity and space that fans of the midsize crossover have come to love.
Speaking of great power, how does 270 horsepower alongside 248 lb-ft. of torque sound? Those are the power ratings of the available 3.5L V6 engine, which achieves 11.2 l/100km combined fuel economy. If you don’t think you need to opt for that much power and would prefer a slight boost to fuel economy, then you can opt to stick with the standard 2.7L 4-cylinder engine that delivers a still-impressive 185 horsepower.
Capacity and Space in the 2016 Toyota Highlander
The important aspects of the new 2016 Highlander are of course the capacities and amount of space found within the cabin of the vehicle. As one of the largest crossovers in the midsize segment, the Highlander can seat up to 8 passengers while providing 158.7 cubic feet of space for them to get comfortable in. These are numbers more closely associated with full-size crossovers, which is just one thing that makes the Highlander such a great option in the class.
The fallback of providing that much passenger space in a midsize crossover is that cargo capacity lacks a bit, as the cargo area of the Highlander is only 13.8 cu. ft., less than most sedan trunks. But, thanks to 60/40-splitting seats, the cabin is incredibly versatile. You can drop the back rows completely flat to open up 42.3 cu. ft. and drop the second row as well to open up an even roomier 83.7 cu. ft.
