You’re going to love the 2020 Toyota Highlander. This adventurous, capable and family-friendly SUV is ready for both every day and any day, wherever the road may take you. Now, more than ever, we’re making more time for family and friends, and we’re taking more time to explore our Canadian backyard. So why not explore in the all-new Highlander? Providing capability, peace of mind and fun along your drive, the 2020 Highlander is what you need to make the most of the time that matters.
The Highlander’s exterior makes a great first impression: it showcases sleek contouring, angular LED headlights and taillights and a textured black grille. Overall, the Highlander’s modern style is apparent. Its body is lower and wider, and it exudes power and sophistication. But the design is also functional, providing for better aerodynamics while driving.
The Highlander sits on standard 18” aluminum alloy wheels, but you’ll have wheel options of up to 20”, available in black chrome clad alloy wheels, if you prefer enhanced aesthetic. You’ll also notice the sporty rear spoiler and black lower rocker panel. To fully enjoy those beautiful sunny days, you can opt for the Highlander with the power slide moonroof or the panoramic glass roof. And for added confidence in any weather condition, you can also opt for the available rain sensing wipers: an automatic function that adjusts wiper timing to the amount of rain falling. Finally, the Highlander is available in 8 diverse paint colours that reinforce this SUV’s stylish demeanor.
You’ll fall in love with the comfortable, dynamic and functional interior. With enough room for up to 8 passengers, comfortable seating is finished in either premium fabric or leather surfaces. To maximize interior cargo capacity, middle and rear seats are equipped with 60/40 split capability. Second row heated seats and second row captain’s chairs are also available. And to ensure that every passenger enjoys a comfortable cabin temperature, the Highlander offers a 3-zone climate control.
2020 Highlander Trim Options

Whether you choose a hybrid Highlander or a traditional engine option, you’ll be impressed with the power you’ll have behind the wheel. Non-hybrid Highlander trims utilize a 3.5L 6-cylinder Direct Injection Engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission, delivering 295 horsepower. If you opt for a trim with all-wheel drive, you’ll also receive Dynamic Torque Vectoring (DVT) and Multi-Terrain Select capability. No matter what the road or weather condition, you can be confident in your drive.
Highlander Hybrid trims function with a 243 Net HP Hybrid Synergy Drive system, along with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). You’ll never have to worry about finding a charging station, either. The drive system recharges as you move, using innovations like regenerative braking to transform energy into electricity to charge the battery.
The Highlander comes standard with an 8” infotainment touchscreen, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It’s also standard with 6 speakers throughout the cabin to ensure that you fully enjoy your music on the road. If you want to maximize your driving experience, you can opt for Connected Services by Toyota Audio Plus, which includes Sirius XM satellite radio and more. Built-in satellite navigation is also available. You can even opt for the Highlander equipped with the 11-speaker JBL Surround Sound System.
