Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Having reviewed the GX, this time we take a look at the 2021 Toyota Fortuner GXL. It's a rugged 4WD that positions itself as the default family option for those whose budget can't stretch to the Prado.

Pros
Ride quality is excellent on any road surface
Power and torque increases translate to the real world
Cabin ergonomics are solid and build quality is robust

Cons
Needs more power outlets, especially in the second row
Third row should be viewed as occasional only
GXL is a steep climb in price from the GX, which remains solid value

PROS
Gutsier updated diesel engine
Nicer screen, now gets phone mirroring
Toyota's most affordable proper 4x4

Cons
Clumsy third-row seat stowage
Firm, sometimes unsettled ride
Short six-month service intervals

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.
