Toyota Highlander

Obviously, the needs of one family can vary greatly from the needs of another. That is why there is never a one-size-fits-all perfect family car. To help families of all shapes and sizes find the best car for them, each year Kelley Blue Book creates a list of the 15 Best Family Cars.

For 2015, three Toyota models were named Best Family Cars, including the 2015 Toyota Camry, 2015 Highlander, and 2015 Sienna.

For smaller families with only one or two children, the Toyota Camry may be the ideal choice. With the 2015 model, families can enjoy the Camry’s bold new design along with a comfortable interior and improved driving performance. And, with its strong reputation for reliability and high resale value, families won’t be left stranded.

If three rows of seating is what your family needs, Kelley Blue Book recommends the Toyota Highlander. This 3-row crossover stands above the crowded competition with its ideal size and seating layout for up to eight passengers. With the pop-out conversation mirror, Mom and Dad can always keep an eye on what’s going on in the backseat.

Nothing can beat a minivan when it comes to the perfect family hauler and the Toyota Sienna is one of the best. The Sienna is still the only minivan on the market to offer all-wheel drive, making it the ideal choice for families who have to battle wintery weather. It has a variety of seating configurations for seven or eight passengers and offers plenty of storage space and creature comforts, including Toyota’s Entune system, a wide-screen rear-seat entertainment system that can play two movies at once, and the Driver Easy Speak that allows parents to talk to the third-row passengers without yelling.

Which of these Toyota models is the ideal choice for your family? Can’t decide? Stop by Hurlbert Toyota and try them all on for size.

2015 Toyota Highlander

With gas prices falling, SUVs are becoming more and more popular. Right now, there are a ton of great mid-sized SUVs available to car customers, making that segment one of the most competitive categories in the industry these days. However, despite the many great options out there, when it comes to picking the best of the best, “there can be only one.” Appropriately enough, that exclusive title belongs to the 2015 Toyota Highlander, which was recently chosen by Kelley Blue Book as the KBB Best Buy mid-size SUV.

According to Torque News, the good people at Kelley Blue Book thought that the 2015 Highlander differentiated itself from other vehicles thanks to its “superb combination of contemporary charm and practical capability.” The respected automotive publication also praised the Highlander by saying that the “well-styled and well-sorted midsize SUV simply does the best job of seamlessly mixing and matching the things that count most into a single engaging package.”

In addition to this exciting endorsement, the 2015 Toyota Highlander was recently named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. If you’d like to learn more about the safe and award-winning Highlander, stop by Hulbert Toyota today.
