Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Six-way power driver's seat now standard on SES and Titanium trims.Cargo cover and package tray included on SE trim and above.Minor exterior styling changes.

Pros
Above-average cargo space for the class
All-wheel drive can be ordered on every trim level
Widespread availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
Sync 3 infotainment interface is fast and easy to use

Cons
Aside from blind-spot monitoring, advanced safety features aren't available
Below-average fuel economy
Base engine can struggle while carrying passengers and cargo
Choppy, jittery ride on most surfaces

Very little is new on the EcoSport for 2021, but it does get an updated appearance package, a standard power driver’s seat on the top SES 4WD trim (oddly, it didn't have one before) , and techy faux-leather seat coverings in the Titanium model.

Pros
Affordable, compact and maneuverable, easy-to-use infotainment.

Cons
Disappointing fuel efficiency, sleep-inducing acceleration, lacks interior space.

The 2021 Ford Ecosport small crossover forsakes its name and doesn’t offer much by way of driving excitement or efficiency.

Pros
Easy to park
Big enough back seat
Cargo space isn’t bad

Cons
No active safety tech
Spartan base model
Hardly a value
Built to a budget
Cheap, but somehow still too much

With three rows of seating and plenty of cargo space, the 2020 Toyota Highlander is a practical choice for families. Toyota's mid-size SUV is all new for 2020 and offers many useful improvements and extra features not found in the outgoing 2019 model.
For 2020, the Highlander gets an interior makeover to match its updated exterior styling. Base L and mid-range LE Highlander models can seat eight passengers using bench seats in both the second and third rows, but a seven-seat arrangement with second-row captain's chairs is available on higher trims. An 8.0-inch infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability is standard but the Highlander Limited and Platinum both get a larger 12.3-inch display; onboard Wi-Fi and an 11-speaker JBL audio system are both available as well.
