There are some people who have sworn that, no matter the size of their family, they will never be old enough, or soccer mom enough to drive a minivan. That is understandable; however, the benefits of a minivan can’t be denied. Not only do they offer a great deal of space for the whole family, but they tend to have good gas mileage and are quite affordable. So what is the alternative for those who need space and fuel economy without sliding side doors? Los Angeles Toyota dealers would like to introduce you to the crossover. The 2016 Toyota Highlander is a wonderful, roomy, rugged option to fill your needs without resorting to a minivan. Instead of simply telling you how great this vehicle is, we’re going to compare it to the 2016 Honda Pilot and let you see just why it is such a good option.
