2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2017 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
The Chevrolet Traverse requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Highlander, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. In this case, the Chevrolet Traverse will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Highlander.

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.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Traverse will do just as well as the Toyota Highlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. 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.

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