The 2006 Toyota Highlander is available with four-cylinder or V6 power, and a choice of front-wheel drive or full-time four-wheel drive. The standard Highlander with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive performs well around town and on the open highway, delivering responsive performance when merging into highway traffic. Equipped with the larger 3.3-liter V6 and all-wheel drive, the Highlander offers strong power and secure handling in nasty weather. Minimize

Need seven seats in your hybrid?
Pros: Economy, acceleration, seven seats in a hybrid
Cons: Styling, steering suffers, front seats undersized, ride a bit busy, extra cost

The Lowdown on the 2006 Toyota Highlander
Pros: Good engineering. Safe , Reliable and good at everything. Conservative SUV.
Cons: Supersensitive steering. Low towing capacity. Conservative. Same as 2005 model.
Better than I expected. Its a generalist SUV if you want to cover all your bases and not excel at anything. Worth a serious look. Read More at Epinions.com

Fine. If you're under six feet tall.
Pros: Quiet, smooth and fast.
Cons: Hard to enter; pathetically limited front seat room; adversely affected by crosswinds.
