I was about to book 2020 Odyssey EXL-RES (Dealer Cost+$300) but going to have a look again at Highlander Hybrid if toyota is offering any deal

Previously Toyota were selling above MSRP, I got quoted of HiHy XLE for $48990+Freight+delivery+HST earlier this year and Dealer Cost of HiHy XLE is $44168/MSRP $47990
Anyone here was able to bargain HiHy above Dealer Cost?

Fyi Dealer are willing to sell 2020 HiHy XLE $850 above Dealer Cost. Still room to negotiate the price

Highlander felt really small from inside and definitely 3 row is hardly useable.
I am going with 2020 Odyssey EXL Res seems to be an only suitable option $581/month at 2.49% interest for 60months with 20k km allowance

I hope I could. My previous lease just completed last week.
Currently without a car and cannot wait much longer in hope hybrid

Even if Toyota Sienna Hybrid comes by end of the year the lease, interest won't be less then 6.15% for 5 years or anything less then 4.99%. Plus dealer won't do much bargain has everyone will want that car.
Only makes sense to wait for Hybrid Sienna if paying cash :)

Well, you should know what the new Sienna is like by Sunday as it is in all likelihood the planned Toyota reveal happening on YouTube.

Toyota teased the 2021 sienna. will be hybrid only as I understand. I think the press conference or keynote is like next week. It is probably a good 8 months away though. It is too bad you cannot find a temporary vehicle for 1 years time. I am not a honda fan BUT the odyssey is maybe the best looking van out there imo. The chrysler is good looking too but known to be very problematic.

Anyone see this previewed 2021 Highlander XSE on the Toyota Canada page? They are so funny. It's like they thought "I know what consumers wants, it's our new SUV with a harsher ride, no performance improvements and the front grille from our 2018 model year minivan."

unrelated but the new sienna hybrid is actually decent looking and I normally hate vans (the look , not the utility).

I am looking for that too.

How much difference in fuel economy of this Hybrid VS Hyundai Palisade? It has a V6 3.8 liter engine.

The funny thing is even if Toyota puts sheet of exterior plywood with logo on the Highlander,it will sell in numbers other makers can only dream of. The '21 looks ok, it doesn't look like older Sienna to me. More like something along Lexus line.

Very true. I don't care about the third row not being as big as others I just want the extra trunk space. Also buying for resale value. These seem to depreciate at about $3000/yr if reselling on autotrader in 5 years.

Love it when people buy something for resale value lol. You don't even have it and thinking what you can get if selling it.

Your resale will be non existent when someone is going to ram you from behind for no fault of your own.

Even then people still buy these in accidents. Barely loses much. (Definitely still ahead compared to leasing)

In my opinion, it is an important metric to consider. Pay $60K, 8 years (and say 160,000km) later with normal wear and tear, it is nice to know you might still get $30,000 for it. Typically a function of market conditions, location, reliability, NVH, year, trim and mileage etc etc. Respectfully, nothing wrong with taking this into consideration. If your going to blow your hard earned money on a depreciating asset, minus well consider all the factors.

Well said. I try to keep all my cars at deprecing less than 3k/year.

This will be replacing an RX450H. Had it for 7yrs and it depreciated $2500/yr = $210/mth. (Bought it when it was 4years old)

6.6-6.8 L/100km if I lay off the lead foot.
7.2-7.4 L/100km if I lead foot it everywhere.

Owned it over a year now and we love it. I dislike the engine noise in the cabin although sometimes it makes me feel like I'm racing (F1 style) when I lead foot it around. I dislike the door sill weather protection. When you open the doors after driving in nasty brown slushy winters, the door sills on the bottom of the doors get really dirty. A minor inconvenience but does require extra cleaning/ wiping when at the car wash. I hear the Toyota running boards prevent this.
