2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 Toyota Highlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota Highlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Traverse, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Traverse as you will with the Toyota Highlander, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Traverse is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Highlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Toyota Highlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Toyota Highlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Highlander.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Traverse and the Toyota Highlander are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has the same turning radius as the Toyota Highlander, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Highlander is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Traverse for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Highlander.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse has less seating than the Toyota Highlander, making the Toyota Highlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Traverse has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota Highlander.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Highlander.
