Pros
Comfortable and upscale interior
Optional engines offer efficiency and power
MyLink user interface is intuitive and easy to use
Extensive list of optional safety features

Cons

The 2019 GMC Terrain is another contender for crossover shoppers’ consideration, but its high price and lack of active safety features keep it on the bench for now.

Pros
Handsome exterior shape
Composed ride
Tony Denali trim has luxury bona fides
Smooth 9-speed automatic
Apple CarPlay compatibility

Cons
Part-time all-wheel drive
Diesel adds thousands to bottom line
No more sliding second row
Active safety features cost extra, on all trims

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.
