2020 Toyota Highlander Interior and Technology

There are a lot of similarities between the 2020 Highlander and the 2019 version of the model. But the 2020 version definitely paid a lot more attention to detail. The mid dash shelf has now been divided in this recent version, so you have one half on the front passenger side and another half just tight under the controls stack

 You will also notice that the interior seems to be more grippy, as it tends to keep items in place. There're 3 USB ports in front and some at the back seat - although there's none in the mid row. The bin in the console at the center is also covered and the made to be thicker for the driver to rest their arms comfortably.

Trust Nigerians to mainly convert the third row seat from passenger seat to luggage space. Though the 2020 Highlander isn't as roomy as those of some of its competitors, it can go head to head with the Mazda CX 9 and the Kia Sorento.

Passengers in the front or in the middle will enjoy plenty of legroom

The car has a lot of leg room especially in the mid row and in front. People at the back might feel a bit claustrophobic due to how "close to the ground"  the third row is.
