Expert Quotes:

surprisingly compliant ride and a well-hushed cabin
Car and Driver

surprisingly smooth and comfortable
Edmunds

The 4Runner is not for those prone to motion sickness.
Winding Road

the front two seats are well-shaped, and that there's a good deal of leg space in the second row
Popular Mechanics

contact with cracks and small imperfections are noticed in the cabin. On the other hand, larger irregularities — washed out dirt roads, speed bumps or dips at intersections — tend to disappear, soaked up by springs, shocks and bushings tuned to handle tough terrain.

There's no way around the fact that a crossover can offer superior packaging, space, and comfort to a body-on-frame SUV. But for a traditional off-road fan that needs room for five and some gear, the 4Runner does the job. Its shortcomings as a minivan substitute are easy to pick out, and drivers looking for that should look elsewhere anywhere--maybe something in an Explorer, Flex, or even a Durango.

The 4Runner's high floor and rather narrow body give away its truck roots, but it's still reasonably comfortable for up to five adults. In front, great-looking and supporting seats are best with the available perforated-leather upholstery. They're wide and supportive, and they fit quite the range of sizes.

The second-row bench seat adjusts for rake (with four detents), and adult-sized occupants will also feel at home, thanks to seat contouring that goes well beyond the stiff bench cushions in some rivals. As for the two-passenger third-row seat offered on SR5 and Limited models, it's hard to get to. We'd leave it to the (small) kids.

Years of evolution have provided some refinement for the 4Runner cabin. It's relatively free from wind noise, even at highway speeds, and the soft suspension does a good job of keeping smaller road imperfections from upsetting the occupants. 

Conclusion

We rate the 4Runner's cabin as good for four adults, though an unusual two-seat third is offered.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
