TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2019 Toyota RAV4

2019 Toyota RAV4 Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
I initially noted that the well-bolstered driver seat felt "ok." But after a few hours in it my rear started to feel sore. To be fair, I haven't had enough seat time in competitors to state that they fit me better. And even if they do, this could just be me. People come in many different shapes and sizes, have different postures, and so forth. Pity seat designers! The upshot: no one else can tell you how comfortable a seat will be for you. Make the test drive as long as you can before buying. see full Toyota RAV4 review

2016 Subaru Forester Seat Room and Comfort: Pros

I'm 6'3" and often don't fit comfortable in vehicles. I found this had a very nice amount of front seat room. The center console tends to stay out of the way as well, some newer designs have the center stack moving into where my right knee would be. It's a very noticeable improvement over my previous 2009 Escape. I actually found the Forester more comfortable for me than the Outback. I was expecting the opposite. see full Subaru Forester review

After looking at Explorer's, I was surprised how much more room the Forester had in the back seat. Granted it doesn't have a third row, but if you don't need a 3rd row, the Forester is hard to beat in this segment for rear seat room. We can put a forward facing child seat in the back, move the front seat up a about 2 inches from all the way back and there's still plenty of front passenger room and my 1.5 year old son can't kick the back of the seat. see full Subaru Forester review

- Terrible front seat support - The cushions are too short - It's not noticeable on a test drive right away. I would not have bought the car! Test drive extensively! - Surfaces where your elbows would lay are too hard - I purchased foam pads to make it feel better. - Tall drivers like myself will struggle with the telescoping wheel's short extension range. - It is hard to get into a fully comfortable driving position. The memory seats in the XT help somewhat by retaining your seat settings if moved. - Front seat cushions are too short - Yes I said this twice - Front seat cushions are too short - Yes I said this THREE times! Subaru are you listening? The front seat cushions are WAY TOO SHORT! see full Subaru Forester review
