TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2020 Toyota RAV4

2020 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

This is honesty the only complaint i have about the 2006 XT. The rear seat is a bit tight. We took three other adults on about a 4 hour trip and it was a tight fit - good thing we're good friends! My wife's 2009 Forester is much better in the rear legroom department. see full Subaru Forester review
2005 4dr SUV 165-horsepower 2.5L H4

Rear seat room is a bit tight for larger people. Car seats are a little tight in both rear and forward facing positions. see full Subaru Forester review
2005 4dr SUV 165-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed automatic AWD
Rear seat is just too small, but that has been fixed for the 2009 models. The front seat, actually the cabin of the car is just a bit too narrow. It needs more elbow room. see full Subaru Forester review

Not enough elbow room. see full Subaru Forester review
