In the crowded 3-row crossover class, the Toyota Highlander is a standout. For the new model year, the Highlander was fully redesigned with sleek styling, better performance, and more desirable features.
Drivers in Miami, Hialeah, Kendall, and Doral can find out more about the 2020 Toyota Highlander with our comprehensive model review.
The standard engine for all Highlander models is a 295-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine that pairs with an 8-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission, replacing the 4-cylinder engine from previous years. There’s also a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine for the Highlander Hybrid model. All-wheel drive is optional. Properly equipped, the Highlander can tow up to 5,000 pounds with confidence.
In addition to its incredible power and capability, the Highlander has smooth driving dynamics. It exhibits minimal body roll and maintains its composure on winding roads and tight curves, ensuring that the ride is comfortable for passengers. It also glides over bumpy roads without disturbing passengers. If you’re looking for a little adventure, the Highlander has some features that enhance its off-road performance, such as the Multi-Terrain Select system with drive modes.
The Toyota Highlander has room for eight people in comfortable, supportive seats with ample head- and legroom. If you want more second-row comfort, the standard bench seat can be replaced with captain’s chairs. All seats slide, recline, and fold flat. Cloth upholstery is standard, although synthetic leather, genuine leather, and more color options are available.
With all seats upright, the Highlander has 16 cubic feet of interior room that expands to 48.4 cubic feet with the third row folded. With all seats folded, the cavernous cargo bay accommodates 84.3 cubic feet of gear. For more cargo convenience, you can upgrade to a power liftgate or a hands-free power liftgate that opens with the sweep of your leg.
The Highlander is packed with exciting technology features that improve the driving experience. Each Highlander model comes with an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. It also has Amazon Alexa and Waze app compatibility, which are often unavailable from direct rivals. You can also get a Head-Up Display and an upgraded 12.3-inch touch-screen for the infotainment system.
For safety, the Highlander has an array of standard features, including Pedestrian Detection, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Lane Tracing Assist and a road sign recognition feature are also newly standard for the 2020 model year. Many other upgrades are available, such as the Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.
With its performance, capability, versatility, and features, the Highlander is one of the best choices for a crossover SUV. Whether you’re looking for a daily driver with entertainment options or a weekend adventurer with room for your camping gear, the Highlander could be the vehicle for you.
