The All-New 2020 Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid


TORONTO, ON:   Those who are keen to take charge of their lives know exactly what they want in a vehicle. It’s more than transportation. It’s a valued resource. It takes them to new places –enter the all-new, 2020 Toyota Highlander. Available in a choice of a regular gasoline or advanced self-charging gasoline-electric hybrid powertrains, with a range of trim levels to suit every taste and budget, the new Highlander line-up is an order of magnitude above the model it replaces, and ready to re-define the segment it created.

 Inside, Highlander expresses a complete, modern makeover. Toyota designers improved everything from the doors to the seating, including better seat-folding features to improve access to the third row. In the meantime, improved legroom makes everybody happier on long journeys. Highlander models with space for eight people feature a three-person bench seat in the second row, while seven-person models upgrade the second row with a pair of captain’s chairs. When there’s cargo to haul, second row and third row seats stow quickly and easily to open up 454 L of versatile space.

The 2020 Highlander is impressively equipped with technologies that help simplify everyday life – starting with Connected Services by Toyota. Certain models also include Safety Connect, Service Connect, Remote Connect and Destination Assist. And every Highlander is compatible with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. 

The Highlander gas models are built around a 295 horsepower, 3.5-litre V6 engine matted to a Direct Shift eight-speed automatic transmission. Highlander Hybrid models feature a new-generation self-charging hybrid-electric powertrain. The new hybrid is not only the most efficient Highlander to date – it’s also now more efficient than many gas-powered compact sedans and is expected to top the segment in fuel efficiency. All 2020 Highlander Hybrid models feature the added confidence of all-wheel-drive (AWD). In addition, the 2020 Highlander Hybrid models carry a starting MSRP that’s just $2,000 more than their gas-engine equivalents. 

Safety is also front and centre, headlined by Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 – an advanced bundle of technologies that enhance driver capabilities. Other standard safety features include the Toyota Star Safety System, the Blind Spot Monitor System with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. To cater to a wide variety of preferences and budgets, the gas-engine Highlander is offered in five models, priced from MSRP: $39,900 to $55,990 The 2020 Toyota Highlander is on sale now.
