2020 Toyota Highlander vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

Serving Enid, OK

With a full new design for the 2020 model year, the Toyota Highlander is dressed to impress. The Highlander gets some welcome updates, including more cargo capacity than ever before. The latest Highlander also proudly debuts with the addition of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard amenities for the first time. A comfortable and quiet ride, commendable power, and upscale interior are highlights of the latest Highlander. The 2020 Toyota RAV4, however, is an equally appealing option if you're looking for an SUV. The RAV4 is smaller but has much to offer with Android Auto and smartphone pairing to its infotainment system. There are some changes to various trims this year, and a new TRD Off-Road edition is added to the lineup, which provides more choices than ever before.


Both the 2020 Toyota Highlander and the 2020 Toyota RAV4 excel in power, performance, and handling. The 2020 Highlander now comes standard with a base V6 engine that provides more power to the base trim level than in years before. Now, all trim levels of the 2020 Highlander are powered by a V6 gasoline engine that creates up to 295 HP. The base engine is paired with an automatic transmission across all trim levels, too. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 also has the same engine across all trims: a 2.5L gasoline engine with four cylinders. This equally impressive engine produces 203 HP and 184 LB-FT of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. All trims get front-wheel drive except for the TRD Off-Road and Adventure, which come standard with all-wheel drive.


The 2020 Toyota Highlander has an overwhelmingly stylish, contemporary, and sophisticated exterior. In contrast, the 2020 Toyota RAV4 has a slightly more robust and rugged exterior design. The Toyota Highlander has a defined mesh front grille flanked by polished chrome accents. Alloy wheels add glimmer and style along the sides, while roof rails provide function while enhancing the SUV's unique design. A variety of color choices lets you customize your SUV's design precisely to your liking. The Toyota RAV4 comes standard with LED lights for optimal visibility. Many features are trim-specific, including larger wheels and a sunroof on the XLE Premium. The Adventure trim has its own set of off-road styling cues. Chrome exterior accents make the Limited the most glamorous trim level of the bunch.


While the Highlander and RAV4 both turn heads based on their exterior, the interior is just as appealing. The base level of the Highlander gets a dynamic infotainment display screen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for the first time. A leather-trimmed steering wheel is a highlight of the Highlander, and you have several seating configurations to make a picture-perfect ride. Captain's chairs and simulated leather upholstery are available starting with the XLE. The Toyota RAV4 comes standard with a seven-inch display screen and a larger eight-inch screen at the higher trim levels. Heated and ventilated seats and a panoramic sunroof are available upgrades.
