Vehicles That Fit Your Family & GearApr 17th, 2017
It’s that time of year again…time to get your kids out to baseball practice, soccer games, or maybe even squeeze in a long weekend getaway with the whole family.
Let’s face it, these days it’s hard to travel light. Unlike the old days, we can now buy lightweight sports bags and suitcases, but you still need to fit them (and your family) into the car!
Fortunately, Toyota makes fantastic vehicles that won’t break the bank and will provide you with comfort, safety, and room for your whole family and their gear.
Canadians love their compact SUVs, and the RAV4 is the first in its class — built right here in Ontario. Billed as the ‘The right choice for any adventure’, the RAV4 is dynamic and stylish, seats five, and has a large cargo capacity.
The RAV4 has a bold front end and a chiseled look, with lower side exterior panels, great LED running lights, and unique wheel designs — but it also has a spacious interior.
The inside features second-row seats with a reclining, folding 60/40 split to help you easily reconfigure the cargo area to fit in all your sports gear, groceries, or travel bags. In just a few seconds, you can fold the second row of seats down to create a wide, flat load space with up to 73.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity.
The RAV4 also comes with a cargo net hammock. This netting helps you store loose items and smaller items safely. It will stop items from moving during driving, and it is flexible enough to let you create different configurations to meet your needs.
The Toyota Highlander is a larger vehicle that seats up to eight people (LE & XLE models). Billed as a vehicle that offers ‘Style as bold as your family’. The Highlander has a bold front end design and alloy wheels, for that sporty look, and it features an available 5000 pound towing capacity — so you can fit your whole family and all their gear with ease.
The Highlander also offers editions that include third-row reclining seats and second-row captain’s chairs. So, whether it’s chauffeuring the captain of your sports team, or the captain of the family, they will enjoy the spacious and comfortable seating options.
When you need the extra storage space, you can easily fold down the third-row seats to access 83.7 cubic feet of storage, so there’s no worry about fitting in everything you need.
The Toyota Sienna is a contemporary take on the traditional family mini-van, making it great for road trips and sports outings.
The Sienna offers flexible seating for seven or eight passengers, depending on the model, and offers a 3-zone automatic climate control so passengers can be comfortable all the way in the back.
Sliding side doors make it super easy to load in family members or team gear, and the power rear door is great whether your arms are full of suitcases or soccer balls.
If the team members seated in the back of the vehicle are getting rowdy, or your kids won’t stop asking ‘Are we there yet? Are we there yet?’, never fear. With one touch of a button, the driver can use EasySpeak and communicate through the car’s audio system to tell them, ‘Don’t make me turn this car around’.
If your family is a little smaller, you will find that the new model of Corolla, the iM, is the sporty hatchback you need.
You will have no problem loading and unloading your family’s bags, or equipment, with this versatile hatchback. There are 60/40 split folding rear seats and even a tonneau cover to conceal your gear.
