TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2018 Toyota RAV4

2018 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
