Vehicle Details: 2020 Toyota Highlander Interior
The Toyota Highlander first appeared at U.S. dealerships in early 2001 and was introduced as a smaller, smarter SUV option than the truck-based 4Runner. Now in its fourth generation, the Highlander is filled with high-quality materials and premium amenities to make every drive enjoyable.
The 2020 Toyota Highlander is available at five trim levels: L, LE, XLE, Limited and Platinum.
Right from the start — on the base trim — you’ll be surrounded by the plushest accommodations. The driver gets an eight-way, power-adjustable seat while everyone will enjoy three-zone automatic climate control with an air filter and individual temperature settings for the driver, front passenger and rear-seat passengers. Furthering the comfort on the base model are the roll-top center console and in-dash split-level shelf, which are covered in soft-touch materials.
Moving up to the Highlander XLE provides even more luxury in the form of SofTex®-trimmed, heated front seats; fold-down captain’s chairs; third-row seating with a recline function; a power tilt/slide panoramic moonroof with a sunshade; second-row sunshades and leather-trimmed accents. However, leather-trimmed front- and second-row seats, a heated second row, ventilated front seats, faux wood door trim, ambient interior lighting and a heated steering wheel are reserved for the Limited and Platinum trims.
To keep your family connected and charged while on-the-go, the 2020 Highlander is filled with a bevy of helpful technology features. On the base model, the driver and front passenger will have access to an 8-inch touchscreen system equipped with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Amazon Alexa, Bluetooth®, a USB media port, advanced voice recognition and a three-month All Access trial of SiriusXM® radio. The Limited and Platinum trims add the premium JBL® audio system with Clari-Fi™ music restoration technology and 11 speakers, making every note sound crystal clear. You’ll also get Dynamic Navigation, HD Radio and trials to a handful of Toyota’s Safety Connect® services.
Along with an incredible infotainment system, the 2020 Highlander comes with four standard USB ports and two 12-volt outlets. And if that’s not enough juice, a Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging dock with a charge indicator light is standard on the Highlander XLE and above. Rounding out the advanced tech is the 10-inch color Head-Up Display on the Platinum trim, which lets you keep your eyes forward while checking vital vehicle statistics.
An SUV is expected to be functional, and the 2020 Toyota Highlander is ready for every adventure thanks to its versatile interior, capable of being adjusted to suit your needs. If you opt for the XLE or higher and the captain’s chairs in the second row, your Highlander will have seating enough for seven; otherwise, you can fit eight people in the SUV (including the driver) with the second- and third-row bench seating. When it comes to adjusting the cabin, all trims offer fold-flat seating to allow for maximum space to bring home those larger items. In total, you’ll have access to 84.3 cubic feet of space behind the front seats. Adding to this convenience are six standard tie-down cargo hooks and a cargo area tonneau cover on the Limited and Platinum models.
No matter which model you choose, the interior of the 2020 Toyota Highlander offers something for every lifestyle. The next time you’re searching for a new vehicle, consider this superb SUV.
