As your family continues to grow, so should your vehicle. Choosing a family vehicle can be a bit challenging when considering features and vehicle utility. N Charlotte Toyota minivans and SUVs are considered family vehicles, but they both sport different feature packages and engineering specs. To help figure out which vehicle is best for your family, Toyota of North Charlotte has made an easy to follow guide!
Choosing your ideal family vehicle
When it comes to choosing between a N Charlotte Toyota minivan or SUV there are several things you’ll want to consider. The amount of space they afford your family, what features they come equipped with, and how versatile they are.
For some drivers, having room to spare in their family vehicle is most important. But, for some, having versatility and fuel efficiency is more important than the space. Luckily, Toyota of North Charlotte has a great selection of family vehicles to suit your needs! Here are some of the interior space specifications for the different types of Toyota family vehicles:
- The Toyota Sienna minivan can seat up to eight passengers and has 39.1 cubic feet of cargo space. This vehicle also gets an EPA estimated 19 city/27 highway mpg.
- The Toyota Highlander seats up to eight as well and has 13.1 cubic feet of cargo space. It gets an EPA estimated 21 city/27 highway mpg and there’s also an available hybrid option for better fuel efficiency.
- The N Charlotte Toyota 4Runner can seat eight people and has 47.2 cubic feet of storage. It gets an EPA estimated 17 city/21 highway mpg.
Minivans and SUVs are engineered with comfort and space in mind. However, minivans take home the prize when it comes to unique family vehicle features. For example, the N Charlotte Toyota Sienna has a dual display Blu-ray entertainment system with wireless headphone capability and power sliding doors. SUVs also come with convenience features like Bluetooth connectivity, climate-control A/C, and fold-flat rear seats, but their features don’t match the minivan’s.
Versatility and engineering
While minivans sport spaciousness and family friendly features, SUVs have some amazing features that give them a more enjoyable driving experience. A North Charlotte Toyota 4Runner, for example, comes equipped with off-roading capabilities. Features like four-wheel drive, CRAWL Control, Multi-terrain Select, and a 5,000-pound towing capacity give this vehicle a truly unique driving experience. Other vehicles like the Toyota RAV4 are smaller in size but come equipped with roof storage racks and a greater fuel efficiency.
