We spent a year and more than 20,000 miles with the 2014 Toyota Highlander. We came away impressed with its minivan-like flexibility in a comfortable SUV package.

    I'm sure it has plenty of room, but minivan practicality? That's a pretty tall order.

    Can it hold 6 adults in total comfort? Then it's not as good as a minivan. Third row SUV seats are only acceptable for small kids and midgets.

    I just switched from a Sienna to a Highlander and there really is no comparison in the room behind the second row. Highlander is great but my bike and even our tandem can fit with just the front wheel off standing up in the Sienna. The low flat floor of the Sienna makes its capacity huge.

    I signed up just to post this comment as a former Highlander owner who now has a Odyssey. The comparison between these vehicles isn't even close when it comes to practicality. Anyone who rode in the 3rd row of the Highlander for even short trips would get car sick. We loved the luxury and the build quality and the powerful engine of the Highlander but that 3rd row is pretty useless and hard to get to. The MiniVan doesn't look that cool on the outside but when the kids or out of town guests are all traveling in comfort we know we made the right choice for us at this time. Though my wife still misses the Highlander and won't think twice about selling the minivan...
