2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
If we have to choose a crossover that offers best value for the money, that would probably be a hybrid version of the Highlander. The popular SUV delivers pretty much everything one family needs. Lots of space and functional cabin are some of its strongest points, as well as the fact that we are talking about an absolute class leader when it comes to fuel economy.
It is also a pretty powerful SUV, which accelerates pretty well. Latest reports suggest that the current generation will carry on on for another year or two, which means that 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid probably won’t feature any important change.
- Class-leading fuel economy
- Lots of power
- Upscale cabin
- Long list of safety features
- Some rivals handle better
In terms of the exterior design, the 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid won’t feature any notable difference compared to the base gasoline version. Count on the same styling, which has been updated three years ago. For that occasion, we have seen new headlights and taillights, as well as a new grille and more attractive bumper.
On the other side, mechanics remained the same. This is one of the rare models in the company’s lineup that still waits to get a new TNGA platform. That will probably happen in a year or two. After that, we can count on better driving dynamics and even better overall characteristics.
Once again, don’t expect more important changes. The 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid will continue with the same cabin layout. Of course, it’s not on par with its sibling, Lexus RX, but it definitely offers a lot of quality. The dashboard looks very attractive and features a lot of quality, soft-touch materials.
This cabin is also very spacious and functional. It offers three spacious rows of seats and also a pretty spacious cargo area, especially if you fold down rear seats. Another strong point is a long list of standard safety features, which is highlighted with things like a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection etc.

The powertrain will basically remain the same, but various reports suggest a slight power boost. It is a Toyota’s well-known system that combines a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine with three electric motors, for a total amount of 306 horsepower. According to these reports, the power would possibly go up to around 320 horsepower. In any case, count on class-leading fuel economy, which goes around 30 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
