What’s New With Toyota in 2019?

2020 Toyota Highlander

A number of Toyota vehicles are undergoing updates for the 2020 model year, and the automaker is adding one hugely significant new vehicle in the resurrected Supra coupe. The hybrid version of the redesigned compact Corolla sedan also will be available for the first time in the U.S., while the popular Highlander SUV received a full redesign. Most of the other updates are tech-focused as Toyota adds smartphone connectivity features like Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to more of its lineup, though there are some cosmetic changes, as well.
