NEW YORK–Toyota’s soccer-mom-mobile gets an infusion of cabin tech, modernized safety features, and an updated sense of style with the debut of the 2014 Toyota Highlander midsize SUV at the New York International Auto Show.

With the previous generation pushing seven years old, แทงบอล the Highlander was very much in need of an update. Also, the SUV still seats up to eight passengers across its three rows or แทงบอล seven passengers when equipped with the optional second-row captain’s chairs. Both configurations benefit from increased interior volume for passengers and cargo thanks to a new, แทงบอล double-wishbone rear suspension that removes the strut tower intrusions. Despite the increased interior แทงบอล volume, Toyota tells us that the exterior dimensions haven’t increased much. Overall length is only up a bit over 3 inches and width only increases by a fraction of an inch.

Of course, the new suspension’s primary function is keeping the wheels stuck to the road and, of course, Toyota tells us that handling has been improved. The Highlander should boast a more rigid chassis and more responsive steering.
