If you’re ready to upgrade your ride and take your driving experience to the next level, consider taking a look at the 2018 Toyota Highlander! This exceptional midsize crossover has the amenities and technology you require, but at Molle Toyota, we don’t want you to just take our word for it. So, before you stop by our dealership at 601 West 103rd Street in Kansas City, MO, take a look at this comparison between the Highlander the 2018 Buick Enclave!

After stepping inside the cabins of the 2018 Highlander and 2018 Enclave, you’ll immediately notice that one offers a more accommodating and spacious interior than its competitor. In the crossover from Toyota, you’ll be able to fit up to eight passengers, making it easy for everyone to come along when you go to the Kansas City Zoo. In comparison, the vehicle from Buick only has space for seven people, meaning that a member of your crew might get left behind. In addition, the Highlander gives you plenty of space to stretch out, supplying 44.2 inches of legroom up front. In the Enclave, you might feel a bit cramped in the meager 41.2 inches of front legroom that it provides. There’s no question that the Highlander is in the lead after this round!

In addition to providing you with a more spacious cabin, the 2018 Toyota Highlander also offers some impressive technology to keep you and your passengers entertained for hours on end. Though the Buick Enclave offers many of the same features, such as SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio1 and audio streaming via Bluetooth®2, you might find that your favorite tunes aren’t all that they could be with the available 10-speaker sound system. In comparison, thanks to the optional 12-speaker JBL® GreenEdge™ premium audio configuration in the Toyota Highlander, you’ll be able to enjoy outstanding concert-quality clarity whenever you’re behind the wheel. Now that’s more like it!

While having access to entertaining features is important, being safe behind the wheel is one aspect that very few drivers are willing to compromise on. Despite offering many of the same or similar safety systems, the Toyota Highlander truly rises to the occasion by offering more of its advancements as standard features. For example, to make reversing out of your driveway easier, the Highlander includes a backup camera3. Additionally, if you ever find yourself in a situation that requires a sudden stop, the Pre-Collision System4 with Pedestrian Detection5 can intervene and provide the braking force that you need. Though you can find both of these features in the Buick Enclave, they require an upgrade to access, requiring you to shell out more cash. 

It was a close battle between the 2018 Toyota Highlander vs 2018 Buick Enclave in Kansas City, MO, but in the end, the Highlander ended up on top. You can experience everything that this exhilarating crossover has to offer by taking one for a test drive at Molle Toyota. We’d love to see you, so be sure to stop by soon!

My 6th Service order was free! I brought my invoices to verify if needed but don't believe I had to do so to claim the entitlement. Service, as usual, was quick, competent and complete. Call ahead for an appointment and it goes quickly. No surprises, good work, very trustworthy establishment.

It had been a really, really long time since I had bought a car. I was dreading it. My experience at Molle Toyota with Anthony and the Toyota buying a new car was a dream. It was so fast! And he listened to what I wanted and did not try to talk me into anything else. All of my questions were answered and I walked out of there with a new car that I loved and a price I could agree on. The no-haggle pricing is a feature that I love in a car dealership.

I've been buying cars and having service completed at Molle Toyota for many years. I'm always greeted by a professional who explains everything to me in detail. Nothing is completed without my knowledge and agreement first. The service waiting area is always clean and I can easily work while my car is being serviced. I wouldn't go anywhere else to buy a car or for service! Thanks Brandon Holsburg for making my visit another good experience!

In response to my emergency of a dead battery while I was remote in another state, everyone was very helpful and responsive. And they immediately supported me coming in after I arrived from the airport even though it was 30 minutes before closing. Gene who seems to take care of me most often, was again very courteous and knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable about what would be done and when it would be done. By the next morning all was complete and done for a small price compared to what they could have done. I continue to be impressed by the courtesy and professionalism.
