2020 Toyota Highlander | Everything We Know So Far

2020 Toyota Highlander | Everything we know so far

One of the original and most popular three-row family crossovers has been completely redesigned, and if you liked the previous version, chances are you'll like the incrementally improved 2020 Toyota Highlander. It's well-equipped with generous safety equipment and entertainment features, and is available with the best fuel economy by far thanks to its unique hybrid offering. That said, it is smaller than virtually all of its competitors, so if you plan to frequently use all three rows of seats and/or need lots of luggage space, it may not be for you.

We have yet to drive the 2020 Highlander, but will update this post when we do. In the meantime, you can find everything we know so far about it below.

What's new for 2020?

The Toyota Highlander is all new for 2020, riding on the same new platform that underpins other recently redesigned Toyotas. It's only a bit bigger than before, and largely represents evolutionary changes intended to bolster its refinement and sharpen its driving experience. The previous Highlander's V6 engine is now standard (the weakling four-cylinder has been dropped), while the Highlander Hybrid model is more powerful, more efficient and now available with front-wheel drive. The advanced torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system from the RAV4 Adventure is now an option on some V6 trim levels. Finally, styling inside and out is significantly different and infotainment features have been bolstered with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A jumbo 12.3-inch touchscreen is also now available.

Nissan Gt-r 50th Anniversary Edition Celebrates, Well, You Know

Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition celebrates, well, you know

The fearsome Nissan GT-R turns 50. The big 5-0. The half-century mark. And to celebrate, Nissan's engineers have plumbed the depths of Godzilla-ness to offer the 2020 Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition in time for the New York Auto Show.

The 50th Anniversary edition comes in three color combinations that evoke Japan GP Series racing liveries of the past, especially Bayside Blue, which has been retired since the R-34, done up in a four-coat double-heat treatment that promises the deepest of blue hues. The other combinations are Pearl White with red stripes and Super Silver with white stripes. All have color accents on the wheels as well. All get a gray interior, a unique steering wheel and shifter, Alcantara headliner and visors, along with embossed seats and other anniversary badging.

Toyota To Share Its Hybrid Know-how For All To Use — 24,000 Patents Worth

Toyota to share its hybrid know-how for all to use — 24,000 patents worth

TOKYO — Japan's Toyota Motor Corp will offer free access to its hybrid-vehicle patents through 2030, it said on Wednesday, seeking to expand use of the lower-emission technology even as the global industry shifts toward fully electric cars.

The pledge by one of the world's biggest automakers to share its closely guarded patents, the second time it has opened up a technology, is aimed at driving industry uptake of hybrids and fending off the challenge of all-battery electric vehicles (EVs).

2019 Honda Cr-v Review And Buying Guide | Everything You Need To Know

2019 Honda CR-V Review and Buying Guide | Everything you need to know

The 2019 Honda CR-V is one of the bestselling vehicles in the country, and while popularity doesn't necessarily go hand-in-hand with excellence, it most certainly does in this case. The CR-V is impeccably well-rounded with space, fuel economy, performance, value, safety and quality that betters most of its compact crossover SUV competitors. And while some of its rivals may be sportier, more characterful or off-road capable, none manage to cater to such a wide audience. We highly recommend any search for a small SUV include the 2019 CR-V.

What's new for 2019?

The Honda CR-V is unchanged for 2019. It was last redesigned for 2017.

What's the CR-V's interior and technology like?

The CR-V provides a tasteful, if a tad dull, design aesthetic backed up with above-average materials and build construction for this segment. If you're a previous CR-V owner, you'll note that this most recent version features a higher-quality and more premium environment than past models. If you aren't, you'll still find it to have one of the nicest cabins in terms of quality, and also one of the most functional, as it boasts a number of clever storage solutions in the center console.

Android P Lets You Know What Background Apps Are Using The Camera Or Microphone

When you install a new app whether it be on iOS or Android, sometimes it asks for permission, such as access to your camera, photos, microphone, notifications, and so on. For the layman, these permissions might seem a bit scary and confusing, and sometimes it can result in them saying "yes" just so they can use the app.

However what happens is that there are some apps that might take advantage of this to access certain features on your phone that it might not necessarily need to. The good news is that in the upcoming Android P update, Google will display notifications on background apps that are having access to the camera or microphone on your phone.
