What's the Difference Between the 2017 4Runner Vs 2017 Highlander?

Although the 2017 4Runner and 2017 Highlander are both midsize SUVs, you'll notice a striking difference in interior and exterior design. If you're in search of a new vehicle to make family trips more comfortable, the Highlander is for you. It's designed to provide greater passenger volume, in all categories, and seat up to 8 passengers. Alternatively, the 4Runner is a better option if you're looking for a performance SUV to take you off the beaten path to your favorite outdoors location. The 2017 4Runner has 6 different trim levels from the standard SR5 to the TRD Pro for a wide variety of performance and convenience options for you to choose from. The 2017 Highlander is available in 5 separate trim levels, from the LE to the Limited, as well as 3 hybrid options for the environment conscious driver.

How do both the 2017 4Runner and 2017 Highlander Perform?

As stated before, if you're looking for the vehicle with higher performance capabilities, the 4Runner is the better option since it's designed for off-road adventure. However, both models can be equipped with a V6 engine that produces comparable horsepower and torque. In the Highlander you can expect better fuel efficiency overall, while in the 4Runner you're sure to experience better capability with off road features such as Hill Start Assist Control, Downhill Assist Control, skid plates, and a vast selection of additional performance add-ons to choose from that aren't available on the Highlander.

Which Safety Features are Included in the 2017 4Runner and 2017 Highlander?

So in both of these SUVs you can expect to be surrounded by the latest safety features including a full array of 8 airbags, Toyota's Star Safety System, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and more.

This is proven by independent studies awarding the 2017 Highlander the *2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick + and a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA.
