The Toyota vehicle lineup is extensive offering everything from compact sedans to hybrids to full-size SUVs and minivans. Our team here at Serra Toyota is going to start taking a closer look at how Toyota vehicles compare to one another to help drivers pick which vehicle is best for them. To start, we’re going to compare two popular SUVs - the 4Runner and the Sequoia. It’s important to note we’re comparing the base models, so the 2016 Toyota 4Runner SR5 versus the 2016 Toyota Sequoia SR5.
The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is smaller, more efficient and marked with a lower starting price point than the Sequoia. The 2016 Toyota Sequoia is larger, more spacious and powerful than the 4Runner, so this is basically a battle between efficiency and power. Keep in mind there are higher models available for each vehicle that offer additional features and more impressive performance capabilities. For seating, the 2016 4Runner SR5 can fit five passengers, whereas the 2016 Sequoia SR5 has room for eight passengers. Let’s look further into the convenience and safety features standard on each vehicle.

When it comes to safety, both the 2016 4Runner and the 2016 Sequoia are packed with top-of-the-line features to ensure the safety of you and your family.

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner SR5 is set with active head restraints and hill start assist control, which is not available in the 2016 Toyota Sequoia SR5.
The 2016 Toyota 4Runner offers more than twice the amount of cargo space behind the rear seating in comparison to the 2016 Toyota Sequoia, however the Sequoia offers more room for passengers overall. For convenience and comfort, both vehicles come standard with cruise control, driver multi-adjustable power seats, heated exterior mirrors, keyless entry and optional navigation systems.
