New Zealand Toyota 4WD

The smart looking Toyota Highlander is one of the most versatile SUV, 4WDs in New Zealand. With a choice between 2WD or AWD, this comprehensive vehicle is suitable for both recreation and touring this beautiful country. This large 4WD has seating for up to seven people and a host of innovative interior design and safety features to free up space and load up on luggage.
