Is the Toyota Highlander bigger than the 4Runner?

With the Toyota brand’s wide range of vehicles, it’s not really a stretch to say that there’s a Toyota for everyone. And we’re not just talking car, SUV or truck, we’re talking several different versions of each type of vehicle to ensure that you get exactly what you want out of your vehicle. With the SUV currently dominating the market, Toyota offers multiple different SUVs for drivers to choose from. When deciding between these models, size may be a deciding factor, which is why we’ve broken down the size difference between two of the brand’s popular SUV models, the 2016 Highlander and the 2016 4Runner.

Just looking at the two models, the 2016 Toyota Highlander and the 2016 Toyota 4Runner are very similar in size, for the most part, with the 4Runner offering a few extra inches in height over the Highlander.

To give you a clear breakdown of the size difference between the two models, take a look at the chart below. We’ll break down not only the dimensions of both vehicles, but how they use their interior space as well.

Got a big family that you need to haul around? Then you’ll most likely benefit more from the Highlander’s passenger-oriented interior. The Highlander offers three comfortable rows of seating, meaning that there’s plenty of room for everyone to sit comfortably and have their own space. There’s also plenty of room to stow everyone’s gear.

For a more performance-based drive for weekend warriors, the 4Runner is ready to take on a hard day’s work. Inside the 4Runner, there’s plenty of cargo space for lugging around large equipment or a weekend’s worth of gear. Add on its powerful engine and 4WD capability, and not only are you able to tow an impressive load, but you can handle off road driving as well.[/bscolumns][bscolumns class=”clear”][/bscolumns]
