Toyota is well-known for making dependable, well-equipped, and capable SUVs, so it should come as no surprise that many drivers compare the Toyota Highlander vs. Toyota 4Runner. Both the 2019 Toyota Highlander and the 2019 Toyota 4Runner offer up to three rows of seating, and neither will disappoint you on the roads near Palm Coast or Palatka. Find out which option best responds to your needs with Beaver Toyota St. Augustine, today.

Performance and Fuel Economy: Toyota Highlander vs. 4Runner

Both the Highlander and the 4Runner will energize you every time you get behind the wheel, but each offers a distinct touring experience:

  • The Highlander offers a balance of power and fuel economy that few competitors can match. With a standard 2.7L 4-cylinder engine and an available 3.5L V6 engine, it delivers fuel economy of up to 21 mpg city and 27 mpg highway**, without compromising on power. It’s available with all-wheel drive, so you’ll always feel comfortable traversing snow-covered pavement.
  • The 4Runner starts with a significantly larger 4.0L V6 DOHC 24-Valve engine with Dual Independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i), and since it’s available with button-activated four-wheel drive, it’s generally better-equipped to tackle life’s toughest challenges and terrains. It offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 17 mpg city and 20 mpg highway**.

If fuel economy is your primary concern, you might consider paying a slightly higher starting price to access the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. According to reviews, it’s one of the most well-rounded SUVs on the road today.

Interior Features: Toyota Highlander vs. Toyota 4Runner

Since both of these SUVs have been designed and engineered by Toyota, you can be sure that both offer a spectacular suite of interior features. In either option, you’ll encounter a 6.1-inch high-resolution touchscreen, Entune™ Audio Plus, and a fully-integrated back-up camera with projected path. Here are a few of the key differences:

  • In the Highlander, you’ll receive:
    • 4.2-inch color LCD Multi-Information Display
    • 6-way adjustable driver’s seat
    • 4-way adjustable front passenger seat
    • 60/40 split, sliding and reclining fold-flat second-row seats
  • In the 4Runner, you’ll receive:
    • Leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls
    • 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support
    • 4-way adjustable front passenger seat
    • 40/20/40 split reclining and fold-flat second-row seat

Notably, every Highlander comes standard with three rows of seating, and even its baseline trim can comfortably accommodate up to eight passengers. The 4Runner, on the other hand, only offers seating for five in its baseline trim. However, some trims can still be outfitted with a third row.
