Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Grand Highlander than in the Toyota 4Runner, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Grand Highlander will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Toyota 4Runner or the Toyota Grand Highlander, it's going to cost you about the same.

Since the Toyota 4Runner is much slimmer than the Toyota Grand Highlander, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota 4Runner, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Grand Highlander.

The Toyota 4Runner has the same turning radius as the Toyota Grand Highlander, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

If you've got something you need to pull, the Toyota 4Runner will do just as well as the Toyota Grand Highlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Toyota 4Runner and the Toyota Grand Highlander.
