Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Highlander offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the GMC Terrain, with comparable head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain.

Convenience

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 Toyota Highlander is somewhat more expensive than the GMC Terrain. 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 Toyota Highlander and the GMC Terrain have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Toyota Highlander transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the GMC Terrain.

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