2015 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2014 Toyota Highlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander than in the Chevrolet Traverse, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Traverse.

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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Traverse or the Toyota Highlander, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Traverse transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Toyota Highlander.

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Highlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver 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
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Traverse and the Toyota Highlander. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Highlander.

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