Narrowing down which crossover or SUV you want is daunting. There are so many options out there that it is next to impossible to research them all. It’s exhausting, to say the least. So, when you finally decide on the vehicle and then realize you also have to compare trims, it can be frustrating. Let us help.
Here’s our comparison of the 2020 Toyota Highlander LE and XLE trims. It includes all the similarities and differences you’ll need to make an informed decision.
The 2020 Toyota Highlander comes in five trims: L, LE, XLE, Limited, and Platinum. Every Highlander comes with an 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, five USB ports, and satellite radio. Tri-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, and a rearview camera are also standard. Each Highlander has the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 suite. Included are a pre-collision system with low-light pedestrian detection, full-speed range dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert with steering and lane tracing assist, automatic high beams, and road sign assist.
The LE trim is the next step up. It adds a few comfort and convenience features like a height-adjustable power liftgate, HD radio, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. It also gets a two new safety features: blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Like the L trim before it, it features three-row seating that maxes the capacity out at eight people.
The XLE is the mid-tier trim. It adds even more integrated tech and comfort features. Standard on this trim are a 7-inch customizable gauge cluster multi-information display, a wireless device charging pad, and a moonroof. The XLE changes its seating up quite a bit, with SofTex synthetic leather upholstery, heated, power-adjusting front seats, and second-row captain’s chairs. The captain's chairs bring the seating capacity to seven.
