At first I thought they cheaped out on the wheel, but from what I understand, that is actually the standard form of heated wheel and only now are they starting to come out with wheels that heat the full 360 of the wheel.

On the backup camera, I cannot comment as to how it compares to others, but I would say its resolution is plenty clear and the lines are very accurate. They seem to line up perfectly with parking space lines, where the vehicle is dead center in between the parking lines when the camera lines overlay the parking spot ones.

The infotainment system is Toyota's older version from what I understand. The 8 inch touchscreen is not the most high crystal clear resolution, but it does seem to work very well (I've read other vehicles, even expensive ones like the Escalade, have had issues with their infotainment systems). It has Apple Carplay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, voice commands, etc...

I agree will all of this. The camera is just fine. It's not like you watching HD movies on this thing. You're backing up, short distances. It does its job just fine.

My only complaint with the infotainment system is lack of customization abilities. The "apps" section is useless. 3 apps, 2 of the 3 on mine don't even load because I don't have that option on my rig. WTF?? I can't even remember what they are, they are that useless. You can't set the display to just one window, you can't set the default screen on startup, etc. I'd also like to change the graphics like the '14-'19 versions can.

The resolution of the backup camera isnt great, but putting a glass screen protector on it improves the experience quite a bit (did for me at least)

Any of the $20ish ones on Amazon will work.

Mine has the heated steering wheel, picking it up in the morning. No remote start

Agree with the position of the heat and works great!

I have a 2016 and would love heated steering wheel. It sounds silly, but that wheel is very cold and doen't seem to warm up in Minnesota winters. Sometimes I think it's filled water that freezes.

I'd much rather have a foot sensor operated powered liftgate. Would make unloading groceries you don't want to set on the ground easier. It has the powered lift gate window which is awesome but no powered liftgate. You can get them aftermarket but I believe those operate only via remote.

The powered liftgates have the foot sensor as an option
