The 2020 Toyota Highlander is a three-row midsize crossover SUV. That means there’s three different cargo capacities. With all seats in place, there’s 16.1 cu-ft behind the third row. When the third row is folded down, there is 40.6 cu-ft of space. Fold down both of the rear rows and you have 73.3 cu-ft of space. Additionally, there are many cubbies and pockets dotted throughout the cabin to store all your personal items.

Seating Options and Dimensions

While the 2020 Highlander is a three-row vehicle, the seating capacity will vary from model to model. The max capacity for L and LE trims is eight people, with two 60/40-split bench seats. The XLE and Limited trims come standard with second-row captain’s chairs, which brings the max capacity to seven. The 60/40-split bench can be subbed in, though, if you prefer. With the top-tier Platinum, however, captain’s chairs the only option. The 2020 Highlander also has three-zone climate control, meaning all your passengers can be comfortable.
