2020 Toyota Highlander vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

Serving Enid, OK

Toyota SUVs are known for their incredible reliability, attractive styling, and impressive performance, so if you're shopping for a new SUV, the compact 2020 Toyota RAV4 and midsize 2020 Toyota Highlander are worth exploring. The Toyota RAV4 was completely redesigned for 2019, and the Toyota Highlander is all-new for 2020. While the RAV4 offers seating for five passengers, the Highlander provides accommodation for up to 8 passengers across three rows.

Performance

When it comes to performance, every 2020 Toyota RAV4 is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 203 horsepower, and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is optional on every RAV4 trim - except for the Adventure and TRD Off-Road trims where it's standard. Meanwhile, every 2020 Toyota Highlander is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, which produces 295 horsepower, and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available as an option on all trims of the Highlander. Hybrid versions of both SUVs are also available.

Appearance

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 offers bold styling with a rugged, almost truck-like appearance. The RAV4's squared-off shape is topped off with standard low profile roof rails, and raised roof rails are available on higher trims. While other midsize SUVs can appear bloated or feature ungainly proportions, the 2020 Toyota Highlander offers handsome, refined styling. Roof rails are available on the Highlander XLE trim and up.

Both of these Toyota SUVs are well-equipped. Standard features for the 2020 Toyota RAV4 include LED headlights, a 6-speaker sound system, a 7-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility, and more. Additional features available on higher RAV4 trim levels include dual-zone automatic climate control, blind-spot monitoring, a push-button start ignition, a sunroof, and a power liftgate, to name a few. Meanwhile, the 2020 Toyota Highlander standard features include LED headlights, a 6-speaker sound system, an 8-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto compatibility, tri-zone automatic climate control, and more. Just a few additional features available on other Highlander trim levels include blind-spot monitoring, a sunroof, a power liftgate, and ventilated front seats.
