2020 Highlander & Highlander Hybrid

New Exterior Design

Express yourself. Lower and wider, and with a newly sculpted exterior, the 2020 Highlander features a more powerful stance fused with a more sophisticated attitude. While its design will turn heads, it also delivers greater aerodynamic efficiency for enhanced vehicle stability.

New Platinum Model

There’s a Highlander to match your style. Every model features its own distinguishing touches culminating in the all-new Highlander Platinum. Set off on the outside by a Platinum coloured front bumper and rear fascia, and unique 20” wheels. While the interior is the most luxurious yet for Highlander, complete with padded surfaces, embossed & perforated leather trim, and a unique seat design.

Seating for 7 or 8

The 2020 Highlander is as flexible as you need it to be. Platinum models offer space for 7 with heated 2nd row Captain’s Chairs. All other models comfortably seat 8 courtesy of a 2nd row bench. Large rear doors provide easy access to the 3rd row. Three-zone climate control lets everyone set their own comfort zone.

Driver Focused

A modern realm filled with luxurious touches, like standard 8-way power adjustable and heated driver’s seat, Highlander is your command centre. The intuitive central console puts controls close at hand. Available features, like Qi wireless charging, 10” head up display, and LED ambient lighting put you in charge while making you wish the journey would never end.

Versatile Cargo Area

A full 60mm longer, the 2020 Highlander offers more cargo volume than ever. Fold the 60/40 split fold-flat 3rd seats to open up 40.6 cu.ft. of space. With the 2nd row seats down, cargo volume increases to 73.3 cu.ft. The available hands-free power liftgate makes loading up and loading out even easier.

12.3” Touchscreen Display

Choose the Platinum Grade and enjoy the convenience of a 12.3” touchscreen – one of the largest in the segment – for easy viewing and simple operation.

Toyota Safety Sense 2.0TM (TSS 2.0)

No matter where your journey takes you, Highlander takes your safety to the next level with standard Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 – an advanced suite of active safety technologies and capabilities, that works to enhance protection and support your awareness and decision making under a variety of conditions and contingencies. New for 2020 is enhanced Pedestrian Detection that allows the system to better see pedestrians and cyclists in lowlight conditions. And Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), that helps to keep your Toyota better centred in its lane.

Features include:

  • Pre-Collision System with Daytime / Low-Light Vehicle and Pedestrian Detection, plus Daytime Bicycle Detection*
  • Lane Tracing Assist*
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Road Edge Detection*
  • Automatic High Beam*
  • Full Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control*

Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS)

Take the guesswork out of parking. Standard on Limited and Platinum models, strategically placed sensors issue an audible warning alerting you to the presence and position of objects in and around your vehicle.

Standard 8 Airbags

We’ve got you covered. The 2020 Toyota Highlander features dual stage airbags for driver and passenger as well as driver’s knee, passenger seat cushion and side curtain airbags for all three rows.

Standard Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert

At your service. Highlander’s Blind Spot Monitor works to heighten your awareness on the road, alerting you to the presence of vehicles that have entered your blind spot on either side. While Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) helps you backup more confidently, warning you of approaching vehicles that may cross your path. Standard on Highlander LE grades and above.

Rear Cross Traffic Braking (RCTB)

Next level safety. Working in tandem with the ICS system, RCTB not only warns you of approaching cross traffic when backing up, but will automatically apply the brakes if the sensors determine that a collision is imminent. Standard on Limited and Platinum models.

Bird’s Eye View Camera and Digital Rearview Mirror

There’s more to see in the 2020 Highlander. Available on Platinum, the Bird’s Eye View Camera gives you a live, rotating, 360° view of your surroundings when parked. While the Digital Rearview Mirror gives you a wider view of what’s behind you – even if your line-of-sight is blocked.

Powerful & Efficient Gas Engine

The available 3.5-litre 295 HP V6 serves up an ideal blend of power and efficiency. Backed by next-generation technology, like Dual Variable Valve Timing-with intelligence (Dual VVT-i), and mated to an 8-speed direct shift automatic transmission – putting power and responsiveness at your fingertips, while helping to make the most of every litre.

Up to 5000-lb Towing Capacity

Turns out you can take it with you. On Highlander Hybrid models, you can tow up to 3,500 lbs of cargo. On gas models, the available towing package allows you to take 5,000 lbs along for the ride. Features include: a heavy-duty radiator, engine oil cooler, and Trailer Sway Control (TSC) to restrict unwanted trailer movement.

Start-Stop Engine

Whenever you come to a full stop – like at a stop light – Highlander’s engine automatically shuts off to save fuel and reduce emissions. Lift your foot from the brake pedal, and the engine instantly restarts, to get you effortlessly on your way.

Multi-Terrain Select

Go with confidence. Available Multi-Terrain Select lets you choose between four modes – Mud & Sand, Rock & Dirt, Snow, and Normal – helping to maximize traction when the roads or the weather take a turn for the worse. * Available on Gas models only

Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD (DTV-AWD) with Rear Driveline Disconnect

Think of it as the ultimate multi-tasker. A Toyota-first, DTV-AWD can send up to 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels, then distributes power to the wheel that needs it most – enhancing stability, responsiveness and control. When it isn’t needed, the system sends all driving force to the front wheels to improve fuel economy and deliver a smoother ride. * Available on Gas models only

Electronic On-Demand All Wheel Drive (AWD)

With a dedicated electric motor for the rear wheels, Hybrid models adapt based on driving conditions – from 100 percent to the front wheels, to an even 50:50 split between front and rear. It all happens seamlessly and automatically to give you better traction when the going gets tough, and performance that brings a smile when accelerating and cornering.

Sport unlocks boost from the hybrid system for more exciting acceleration. And EV lets you drive using electric power only at low speeds for longer distances.
