I work hard on a daily basis to bring people the most comprehensive Toyota news and reviews I possibly can. I also really enjoy doing this in different, creative ways. Recently I had the opportunity to test and review all five trim levels of the 2020 Toyota Highlander in the same place at the same time. This is not an easy thing to do. Nearly as challenging as trying to figure out if Pluto is still a planet or not. By the way, bring Pluto back scientists – you’re ruining my childhood.

Highlander was completely redesigned for the 2020 model year. Shoppers will find it has a sleek, sophisticated profile, along with modern interior styling loaded with new technology and safety features.

One of the toughest things for shoppers to do, though, is tell the various trim levels apart. I believe Toyota made a wise decision to simplify its grade strategy for this fourth-generation Highlander entry.

2020 Highlander trim levels

The 2020 Highlander is separated into L, LE, XLE, Limited and Platinum trim levels. No more LE Plus, which was a little confusing. No more Limited and Limited Platinum – just Limited and Platinum. Much easier to understand.

When 2020 Highlander Hybrid models are shipped to dealers this spring, they will have a similar philosophy. No L model, but there will be LE, XLE, Limited and Platinum for buyers to decide on.

The really exciting part about the 2020 Highlander is that it is loaded even at the L entry level model. All Highlanders feature standard smart key push button start, power driver’s seat, 8-inch multimedia touch screens (some will have 12.3-inch screens), Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Toyota Safety Sense 2.0.

2020 Highlander Video Review

Since I had all five vehicles with me at the same time, I set out to create and produce the most thorough, in-depth comparative review I could think of. Hopefully you can use this as a complete resource on the 2020 Toyota Highlander, and you will be able to successfully narrow down your choice to the perfect one.

I hope this helps everyone.
