Do you need a vehicle to transport your family to school, basketball practice, show choir rehearsals, 4-H meetings, and fun road trips? Then a crossover is one of your best options! These vehicles offer easy handling, excellent efficiency, and plenty of room for your kids and their cargo. Toyota offers a full lineup of crossovers and we love them equally for their top-notch quality and style. However, we understand that one size can work better for you over the other. We want you to drive away happy and in the perfect vehicle, so we are offering a comparison between the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and the 2018 Toyota Highlander.

Size Differences of the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and 2018 Toyota Highlander

When parked next to each other, you will notice that the 2018 Toyota RAV4 and 2018 Toyota Highlander are sized very differently. The 2018 Toyota RAV4 is a compact model and comes with two rows of seats that accommodate up to five passengers (all of whom will enjoy plenty of leg and elbow room). This makes it a great choice for singles, couples, and active families with one or two kids. Despite the compact classification, the 2018 Toyota RAV4 is very spacious with a 38.4 / 73.4-cubic foot cargo space. 

If you have two or more kids who are extremely social and involved in numerous after-school activities, then we recommend the 2018 Toyota Highlander. This midsize crossover is outfitted with three rows of seats so your kids will have plenty of room to stretch out during long road trips – and you will also have room to transport their friends and teammates. Whether your kids need to transport large 4-H projects or lots of luggage for that big family vacation, you will have plenty of space thanks to the 13.8 / 42.3 / 83.7-cubic foot cargo area.
