Choosing a new vehicle for the family that delivers on space, kid-friendly amenities, and driver-friendly handling can be difficult. Luckily, there are a few favorites that stand out in this crowded field including the 2019 Toyota 4Runner and 2019 Honda CR-V. Both are excellent options, but the choice between them will come down largely to price, space needs, and capability.
The features and amenities on the 2019 Toyota 4Runner lineup are more specialized than on the 2019 CR-V lineup. So, while the CR-V is great for passenger hauling, it lacks the ability to tow or tackle off-roading like the 2019 Toyota 4Runner, which can come in handy for families who like to travel with lots of gear or take weekend trips outdoors. The 2019 4Runner is also much larger. Learn more about the space differences between these two models below.

On the inside, both the 2019 Toyota 4Runner and 2019 Honda CR-V deliver when it comes to comfort, available amenities, and safety equipment. While families should have no trouble enjoying their time on the road in either model, the 2019 Toyota 4Runner’s cabin is going to provide quite a bit more room. In fact, there is so much extra room in the 2019 4Runner that shoppers have the choice to add on a third-row seat upgrade that bumps the available seating capacity to seven. The 2019 4Runner’s third row is convenient for car pool or for growing families, though the third-row seats are best for smaller children.
Again, because of the extra cabin space in the 2019 4Runner, it also offers a massive leg up when it comes to storing passenger belongings, bags from a shopping trip, or anything else you need to bring on the go. With all rear seats folded flat, the 2019 4Runner delivers up to 89.7 cubic feet of space compared to the 75.8 cubic feet of space available in the back of the 2019 Honda CR-V.
Drivers interested in a larger family hauler with plenty of power and capability for family travel in the great outdoors will likely prefer what the 2019 Toyota 4Runner lineup has to offer. The current 4Runner lineup is available for same-day test drives and purchase now at Fox Toyota in Clinton, TN near Knoxville.
