Given how much Americans like SUVs, the three-row SUV market is the most competitive.

Competitors in this position on the automobile market include the Hyundai Palisade, Kia Telluride, and Honda Pilot.

 The 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid outsmarts them all with its fuel-efficient powertrain

Unless you consider the Ford Explorer Hybrid, in which case the Highlander also has greater fuel economy.

There are presently four trim levels for the 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid: LE, XLE, Limited, and Platinum.

A Limited trim level in "Opulent Amber," which appears black both in person and in photographs, served as my tester for the week.

There is an amber tone, which is also pretty luxurious, believe me, in the appropriate sunshine.

You'll be relieved to learn that there are seven additional exterior colours available if you don't favour amber colours.
