Part speculation, but it looks like Ascent might be taking over the top spot in their Mid-sized SUV ratings.

If you look at the Highlander review page, it now says that it's #2 of 18 in the category. Furthermore, the scale now shows the highest rating is 87.

On the category ratings page, it still shows Highlander at the top, with a score of 85, but at the bottom of the list is Ascent "in test."

Seems as though that 87 top score will be the Ascent. What do you think?

Is it free to become a member? I cannot see any of the ratings on the site without becoming a member/logging in.

I would tend to agree (maybe it's just confirmation bias on our part). Perhaps they added the score before they got the write-up done?

If you log into the page and click on ratings on the Toyota Highlander page it shows two 2018 Highlanders one rated 87 and one rated 85. It appears to me the difference between the two is the transmission so I think something is just wrong with the site and how it is handling the two Highlanders ratings.

it is not free, but if you do online only (no magazines delivered to your house), its really pretty cheap. And they review EVERYTHING. Even down to insurance policies.

CR does love a SUBIE it'll be hard for a first year to over take the highlander with so many years of reliability. Just my 2 cents
