If you have your heart set on a Toyota crossover as your next vehicle, then you are making a great choice! Toyota is renowned for its quality and all-around usability, and some of the brand’s crossovers are some of the most popular models in their respective classes. Here at White's Toyota , many of our customers veer toward the 2020 Toyota RAV4 and the 2020 Toyota Highlander, and sometimes they struggle with deciding which model is right for them. While we love both models equally, we want to ensure that you are driving away happy in your new Toyota with no second guessing and no regrets later down the road – so we are presenting a special comparison for you to look at.

Am I Better Off With a 2-Row or 3-Row Toyota Vehicle?

This is by far the most-asked question here at White's Toyota , and we have some thoughts. If you are the only one who will be using the vehicle as your daily commuter and occasional road tripper, and maybe once in a blue moon have a friend along for the ride, then we recommend going with the 2020 Toyota RAV4. 

If you have a family – even if you decide that two kids are your limit – we recommend going with the 2020 Toyota Highlander. You will have more room to work with, especially if you need to pick your kids up from school plus some of their friends for an after-school activity or a Friday night slumber party. Even if you refuse to help with carpooling, the extra seats can be helpful for when Grandma and Grandpa come to visit and you decide to visit a nearby attraction together. It would make more sense to ride together in one vehicle rather than take two vehicles. And having that extra row of seats can be extremely helpful when your kids decide to do some backseat bickering – you can separate them for a little while so you can drive in peace!
