Highlander Hybrid Makes CR’s Top Picks

Each year, Consumer Reports puts together a list of “top picks” from among the vehicles currently on the market.  I’m proud to say that my new car, the 2006 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, was selected as the top vehicle in its class.

The Highlander Hybrid is in the “Mid-sized SUV/SUV more than $30,000” category.  According to CNN’s story about the CR top picks:

The Highlander Hybrid has quick acceleration, a comfortable ride and a third-row seat. The Highlander Hybrid and the closely-related Lexus RX400h were the only SUVs to earn an overall “Excellent” score in Consumer Reports’ testing. The magazine recommended the Honda Pilot as another good choice with a better third-row seat.

It’s interesting to note that Japanese manufacturers took all ten spots in CR’s list this year.  Honda was the big winner with five.  Toyota and Subaru had two each, and Nissan had one.
