Cargo Capacity Ranked 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD worse.
"The 4Runner probably has close to double the cargo capacity of the FJ Cruiser. That being said, the FJ was never designed as a weekend/holiday surplus store shopping vehicle."
Would Buy Ranked 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD worse.
"I would buy the 4Runner over the FJ for one reason alone... rear seat access/sitting room. The suicide doors on the FJ are a cool-looking design feature, but they are 100% impractical for daily parking lot/garage use as well as if you have a family to transport to and from school/sports/etc. The 4Runner is far more capable as a family-focused vehicle in my opinion."

Back Seats Ranked 2019 Lexus GX 460 4WD worse.
"The unheated back seats on the Lexus takes a little getting use to in the cold winter weather. The cloth seats in the 4runner are very comfortable."

Handling Ranked 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SE 4Motion AWD with Technology better.
"Steering felt more responsive for the Atlas. Both vehicles had a good turning radius, and the Highlander may have felt like a lower center-of-gravity, but it also felt floaty in response to steering, while the Atlas was precise. "
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SE 4Motion AWD with Technology worse.
"The Highlanders front seats are pretty even in seat quality and comfort, but the interior is better wrapped around the driver than the Atlas. One caveat is that the Atlas provides more room for larger drivers, but the Highlander is a bit more comfortable for most drivers. "
Back Seats Ranked 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SE 4Motion AWD with Technology better.
"This was the easiest call. The Atlas has three rows of adult-size seating. While they dont try to cram three seats into the back row, you can actually sit two full-grown adults in both the second and third row, while the Highlanders back row is toddler-sized only. "
