2020 Toyota Tacoma Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.7

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma has an upscale interior and a long list of intuitive technology. However, seating is a little cramped.

  • "The Tacoma’s smartly finished interior remains competitive, something that we noted in the midsize truck comparo." -- Autoblog
  • "As is Toyota's tradition, assembly quality is excellent. The … Tacoma interior uses high-quality materials on the doors, dash, seats and everywhere else." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "The attractive interior features solid materials and construction. Numerous trips off-road failed to reveal any squeaks or rattles." -- Edmunds (2018)

Seating

The Tacoma Access Cab seats four people, and the Double Cab seats five. Cloth upholstery and four-way manually adjustable front seats are standard. Leather upholstery, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are optional.

Critics appreciate the new driver's seat adjustments, but they note that headroom is still tight in both rows for taller occupants. The Access Cab's second row is very cramped, and even the Double Cab isn't as spacious as some rivals.

If you need to secure child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the Tacoma’s rear outboard seats, and Double Cab models have a tether anchor for the rear middle seat. The lower anchors are mostly user-friendly, but the tether anchors are hard to find and distinguish from other hardware.

  • "A new, 10-way power driver’s seat applies a band-aid to the Tacoma’s longstanding issue of a too-low seating position that forces taller folks into an uncomfortable, legs-splayed-out position. But without changes to the cab dimensions, jacking the seat up exacerbates the Tacoma’s shortage of headroom versus key rivals." -- Autoblog
  • "Seating is comfortable, and the cabin logically arranged with all the most important switchgear within easy reach." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "There's plenty of personal space in the Tacoma, but the front headroom isn't generous. You've got to be taller than average to notice, and if that is the case you might want to think twice about that sunroof. The crew cab's back seat isn't as roomy as those of rivals." -- Edmunds (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 Tacoma include a 4.2-inch instrument cluster display and a 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Amazon Alexa, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, voice recognition, and three USB ports. Standard driver assistance features include lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, forward automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and a rearview camera.

Optional features include an 8-inch touch screen, HD Radio, navigation, wireless device charging, a JBL premium stereo, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a moonroof. Remote keyless entry, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a surround-view monitor, and a multiterrain monitor are also available.

The upgraded infotainment system is user-friendly, and critics like the inclusion of standard smartphone integration. Most controls are laid out intuitively and are easy to reach from the driver's seat.

  • "The addition of CarPlay makes a huge difference, making it easier to access your music, contacts, texting, and Google Maps. This small update will make a big difference to many buyers, and we're happy it's finally here." -- Motor Trend
  • "A new multimedia system happily replaces a much-derided unit, and now includes a larger 8-inch touchscreen (or 7 inches on the SR starter model) with newfound Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Amazon Alexa connectivity." -- Autoblog
  • "The other main enhancement this year is the introduction of a new touchscreen audio system. The screen itself is larger and clearer, and we like how the menu shortcuts are now physical buttons instead of indistinct touchpads. Best of all, it now supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. Toyota has also designed the touchscreen so that you can mix and match smartphone audio and map sources with the factory built-in ones. In most vehicles, engaging Apple CarPlay or Android Auto locks out any other integrated system." -- Edmunds

Cargo

The Tacoma is available with a 5-foot or a 6-foot-1-inch bed. The bed is deep, but the high walls are easy to reach over. Adjustable tie-down cleats and a composite bed liner are standard. Available features include in-bed LED lighting, a removable tailgate, and a household-style power outlet.

  • "Inside, the Tacoma crew cab's rear seat folds forward to provide a flat and secure load surface that stands at a convenient height. The folding procedure is a bit fussy, but the result is superior. … The bed sides are easy to reach over, and the tailgate is damped." -- Edmunds
  • "The composite-lined bed contains two useful storage bins, and its high walls mean it can carry plenty of cargo. The locking tailgate is damped for easier opening." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)
  • "Both 5-foot and 6-foot bed styles have been increased in depth by 7 percent to 19.1 inches, and both maintain a solid 53.4 inches of width at the tailgate (41.5 inches between the wheel wells). This means you can carry a stack of 4-foot-by-8-foot plywood in the pickup bed on top of the wheel wells, hanging out of the open tailgate." -- Autotrader (2016)
