The 4Runner is among the best off-road-ready SUVs in this price range.
Despite retaining a body-on-frame construction, the 4Runner rides better than some car-based SUVs.
While its cabin is very roomy and quiet, the 4Runner doesn't provide the nimble, carlike handling of car-based models.
Still, it is sound and secure.
Side- and curtain-airbags are standard.
