Toyota 4Runner

Toyota 4Runner vs Highlander: Interior Specs

Both of these midsize sport utility vehicles provide comfortable and roomy interiors to make everyone on board feel right at home. For instance, the 4Runner is able to fit a maximum of five passengers with an interior volume that comes to 97.3 cubic feet. The Highlander has room for up to seven with its interior volume of 142.2 cubic feet.

The comfort continues when exploring their interiors even further. Over in the 4Runner, you and your front-seat passenger can expect plenty of space in which to move around with 39.3 inches of headroom, 57.8 inches of shoulder room, 56.5 inches for hip room, and an abundance of legroom that measures 41.7 inches. You get even more comfort in the Highlander front seat with 39.5 inches of headroom, 59.3 inches of shoulder room,
hip room that gives you 57.2 inches, and a spacious 44.2 inches of legroom.

This spaciousness continues for both cars as we move on to the back seat. In the Toyota 4Runner, your back-seat passengers will be able to make use of 38.6 inches of headroom, an accommodating shoulder room of 57.8 inches, 55.7-inch hip room, and 32.9 inches for legroom. The back-seat headroom in the Toyota Highlander is 39.6 inches, it has 59.6 inches when it comes to rear shoulder room, the hip room is 57.1 inches, and the legroom is 38.4 inches.

While both vehicles prove to be quite roomy, the extra space inside the Highlander might be just right for the needs of a growing family.

Toyota 4Runner vs Highlander: A Look at Convenience

Just as they share comfortable cabins, these two SUVs also provide several convenient touches that successfully enhance the drive. When it comes to having a convenient amount of
stowing space, the 4Runner offers 46.3 cubic feet of total cargo volume, while the Highlander gives you 13.8 cubic feet. They both have
split folding bench seats to help you fit in the more awkward items as well. While this is a standard feature in the 4Runner, it’s available in the Highlander.

In the event you need a formidable vehicle for towing your camping supplies, recreational vehicles, or work equipment, you can count on both vehicles as they each deliver a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. The Toyota 4Runner provides you with even more capability with its maximum payload that can get up to 1,550 pounds. The maximum payload over in the Highlander is 1,340 pounds.

A few more convenient features found in the Toyota 4Runner include the standard Active Head Restraints that work to provide increased head, neck, and lower back support. There are also the available chrome door handles that utilize touch-sensors to lock and unlock. Neither of these features
are available in the Toyota Highlander. If convenience is a priority for you, the 4Runner might be the way to go.
