Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Toyota 4Runner ranking is based on its score within the Midsize SUVs category. Currently the Toyota 4Runner has a score of 7.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 49 pieces of research and data elements using various sources

It offers all the hardware necessary for rock crawling on the weekend, and on the weekdays it can seat up to seven or pack away a tremendous amount of cargo. It’s also a high scorer when it comes to predicted reliability. That said, this SUV is a lot friendlier off-road than on. You’ll find that rivals like the Jeep Grand Cherokee offer a better mix of on-road comfort and all-terrain performance. Alternatively, models like the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander are much more practical – and affordable – options for cruising suburbia

Since the 4Runner doesn’t offer many high-tech convenience features, you can largely ignore the pricey 4Runner Limited

Pros
Impressive off-road capability
Great overall cargo space

Cons
Firm ride
Poor fuel economy
Cramped third-row seats
So-so interior materials and features

The Toyota 4Runner is known for being true to its roots. It's one of the last remaining old-school SUVs, which is to say it's still a truck. It has not crossed over to being a tall car. Its body is bolted to its rugged chassis, like they used to do, back when SUVs were tough and before they were gentrified. If you want one of those, buy a Toyota Highlander. If you intend to go off road, get the 4Runner

The 4Runner is comfortable for long trips, with a reasonably smooth ride and very little road noise, although the cabin doesn't quite match the refinement of the Ford Explorer or Dodge Durango. And its narrower body and taller floor steal some cargo space, compared to those models that aren't body-on-frame.

If you need a new full-sized SUV and don't want no namby-pamby crossover, the 4Runner is the hot setup in this price range.

With the 2016 Toyota 4Runner, you'll trade off a little refinement and on the road finesse for true SUV capability, off-road prowess, and unparalleled style

The 4Runner has a certain Tonka-truck charm, with its squared-off corners and remarkably straight surfaces, by today's standards

The Toyota 4Runner isn't as uncomfortable on-pavement as it used to be; yet it's kept all the off-road prowess

The 4Runner has a surprisingly quiet ride, and its cabin is good for four adults.

The 2016 4Runner earns respectable ratings, though small-overlap test results bring down its GPA.

ust as it should, the Toyota 4Runner puts the focus on off-road gear and useful hardware.

Gas mileage isn't exactly the focus here—and if it is, you shouldn't be considering the 4Runner.

The 4Runner is authentic, and that's part of what makes its rugged style work so well. It's not just an image conjured up for marketing purposes; this truck family has had the same basic wagon shape for years

Pros
An SUV like no other
Perfectly matched powertrain
Rugged yet comfortable cabin
Trail model's handy off-road electronics
Off-road-ready TRD Pro Series

Cons
Third-row seat is for kids only
Cargo space isn't at all plentiful
Choppy ride in base versions
Pricey in Trail and Limited trim

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner is a rugged body-on-frame SUV with more off-road capability than almost any rival, but as a daily driver it's lacking a bit of refinement.

Rowdy, off-road ready, truck-based SUVs were once the hottest segment in the market. But shoppers soon discovered that bouncy rides and poor fuel economy were also part of the deal. That ushered in the crossover, an easy-riding, car-based light utility vehicle that looks a lot like an SUV but lacks its truck-based ruggedness. There are only a few traditional SUVs left these days, and the 2016 Toyota 4Runner stands proudly among them. Boasting available three-row seating, a spacious cargo hold and Toyota's reputation for reliability, the 4Runner stays true to its roots as a hairy-chested SUV that's ready for almost anything

The 4Runner has a difficult time smoothing out potholes in the city with its busy ride, and its fuel economy is woeful compared to most V6-powered crossovers. And its optional third row seating is best reserved for kids, so if you want adult-sized space back there, you'll need to look elsewhere.

pros
Outstanding off-road capability
Strong V6 engine
Ample cargo capacity
Optional third-row seat.

cons
Busy ride
Third row is for kids only
Poor fuel economy
Low towing capacity for a traditional SUV
Cumbersome setup process for Entune system.

Another cushy compact crossover may or may not be what the world needs now, but it’s exactly what Infiniti needs. Enter the swoopy, stub-tailed QX30—which Infiniti is pitching as a “premium active crossover”—to give the brand an entrant in a segment poised for explosive growth. We tested an all-wheel-drive QX30 and found it does a reasonable job of being a cushy compact crossover, with its 8.0 inches of ground clearance, skid plates, and roof rails joining the creature comforts and chrome that come with being an Infiniti.

But those are crossovers. And as we’ve stated before, the QX30 Sport is not really a crossover, but rather a Euro hatch, one that Infiniti happily did not leave in Europe.

Pros
Expressive design, composed chassis, upscale interior.

Cons
Cramped in some dimensions, modest cargo area, transmission needs a Normal mode.

The 2017 Infiniti QX30 is a new addition to the automaker’s lineup and is its first entry to the growing luxury subcompact crossover segment.

Slotting below the aging QX50, the 2017 Infiniti QX30 is a small luxury crossover that’s available in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations. Compared to the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class (the car on which it’s based), the QX30 features a more curvaceous exterior design.

The Infiniti QX30 is shares its platform, engine and transmission with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, GLA-Class, and the not-for-U.S.-consumption A-Class hatchback

Noise inside the cabin is kept to a minimum thanks to a good amount of sound insulation and interior trim materials are high in quality. The dash layout is unique because of its asymmetrical design, but the Infiniti InTouch multimedia interface could be more intuitive. Nissan and Infiniti’s “Zero Gravity” seats come standard and have plenty of support without sacrificing comfort. Although the QX30’s rear seats can accommodate adults but head- and legroom are limited. The low roof and small rear window, however, means rear visibility is compromised due to the car’s dramatic exterior styling.

Pros
Sporty handling and smooth ride
Torque-rich turbocharged engine
Well-insulated cabin

Cons
Cargo space is on the small side
Limited rear passenger room
Steering is a little heavy

You don't have to pay a fortune to get a luxury-branded vehicle these days. The new 2017 Infiniti QX30 is reasonably priced and yet offers you more style and performance than the typical small crossover SUV. Read more to learn if the QX30 has everything you're looking for.

Infiniti considers its all-new 2017 QX30 a combination of coupe, hatchback and crossover. The way it straddles these body types can be advantageous. From a driver enjoyment perspective, you will find the QX30 more athletic and better handling than a typical SUV. Compared to a traditional sedan, the QX30's hatchback design gives you greater versatility, both in terms of its taller ride height and increased cargo capacity. Then there's the QX30's coupe-like styling, which helps it look sportier than the typical sedan or crossover. The question you might wonder, though, is whether this extensive blending results in a vehicle that delivers the best of both worlds or is diluted to the point of not excelling at anything.

Pros
Easy to maneuver around town
High-quality interior looks sharp and comes pretty well equipped
Multiple driver assistance features are available to help keep you safe.

Cons
Sport models ride firm compared to other available versions
Noticeable amount of wind and road noise at highway speeds
Cargo capacity is smaller than rival crossovers
Reflective interior trim pieces are distracting in bright-light situations.
