The 2020 Toyota Highlander in Hermitage has a beautiful, state-of-the-art exterior. The new design change brings a bold, modern, and stunning new look to the car from every angle. The front end features a sloping hood with a prominent front grille. Sweeping LED headlights give the Highlander a dramatic look from the front end. The Toyota emblem sits prominently in the middle of the grille. Fog lights are standard on the higher trims, starting with the LE. LED headlights are standard on the base trim, while you can opt for brighter lights up the lineup. The base trim and LE have many of the same exterior features. Progressing to the XLE, however, which is the third trim level, brings a few more changes, including roof rails. Larger 20-inch wheels are standard on the Limited.
Inside, the 2020 Toyota Highlander gets an updated cabin filled with all the amenities you could want. While there are many standard features on all trims, you can also add on a number of features, too. At a minimum, the infotainment display screen comes in a standard size of eight inches, which is very reasonable for a vehicle in the Highlander’s class. Also this year, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard for the first time across the board. The Highlander adds more luxury features and creature comforts as you go. All trims are also more spacious due to the addition of 13.8 cubic feet behind the third row of seats. By the time you get to the highest trim level, which is the Platinum, the Highlander comes standard with a larger 12.3-inch infotainment system and a full leather interior. A number of seating fabrics and seating materials are available across the lineup to give your Highlander a comfortable feel and stylish look.
The 2020 Toyota Highlander in Hermitage is well-equipped with a powerful, sporty, and capable mechanical system.

All trims have the same eight-speed automatic transmission as well. Front-wheel drive comes standard on all Highlander trims, while all-wheel drive is available.
