Changes for 2023
Well, I see it 2 ways. Either they did the larger screen and modified the current software as a bridge to the new software for when it is to be released, thus providing an update for all of us. Hopefully this is the case and it works similar to the NX Lexus.We've always complained about the fact that the HVAC controls killed 1/3 of the 12" screen. Agree, that was a dumb thing to do in 2020. Obviously it was a limitation of the old Entune software and they had to fill space on such a wide screen.
On my '22 Platinum, it (volume knob) is on the left side...Also can control the volume on the steering wheel, which is how I mostly adjust volume) What year trim level are you referring to that has the volume controls (button??, knob??) on the right?The volume button is now on the right side of the display screen. Quite the stretch for the driver to reach.

That's the main reason I traded my '20 Outback XT for a '22 Highlander XLE. Anything other than changing the temp required looking at the touchscreen. I had no problems with the Outback mechanically, and the 11" screen was great for nav, but it was a safety hazard IMO.I complained about the unnecessary removal of the HVAC buttons on the large screen, sorta got hammered for it here, and Toyota just proved my point. They put it back. Basically they updated the car to how it should have been when released for 2020.
Audi and Volvo puts a 2.0l turbo engine in a same sized vehicle alsoThis just confirms that I will not be purchasing a 2023. I do not understand in any way how you can put a 2.4L engine in a vehicle this big. Your fuel economy will not increase and your engine will take more abuse.
