Design Comparison: 2018 Toyota RAV4 VS 2018 Subaru Forester

Despite the fact that the 2018 Subaru Forester has substantially more interior volume than the 2018 RAV4, the Toyota feels just as comfortable. Both vehicles have within an inch of the exact same legroom in both rows of seats. Plus, you'll get an extra four cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats in the RAV4, so it can carry the most cargo along with a full load of passengers. You'll be able to access all that space even easier with an available foot-activated, hands-free power rear liftgate. A hands-free liftgate is not available on the 2018 Subaru Forester.
