Castlegar is home to plenty of big families who need a vehicle that provides seating, space and safety. If you think that needing a vehicle that can seat 6, 7 or 8 passengers is a life sentence behind the wheel of a “soccer-mom van,” then you’ll be happy to know that Toyota has designed plenty of stylish SUVs and minivans that will suit the needs of larger families! With 7-8 seater options like the Toyota Highlander, a fuel-efficient SUV that’s popular among BC families, Toyota 4Runner with its impressive off-roading capabilities, the luxurious and spacious Toyota Sequoia and the incredibly comfortable, all-wheel drive Toyota Sienna, there is something for everyone at Castlegar Toyota. Let’s take a look at exactly what each of these big-vehicles can offer your family!
With enough seating for up to eight passengers and an IIHS Top Safety Pick title, the Toyota Highlander is one of the most popular SUVs on the road for larger families. The 2020 Highlander was fully redesigned to include more standard safety and tech features than ever before, a powerful V-6 engine and available all-wheel drive, so that you can confidently get the entire crew wherever they need to go. When you’ve got up to eight passengers on board, you need a place for all of their stuff - that’s why Highlander features versatile interior seating and plenty of additional cargo space to help you keep everything from backpacks to groceries organized. With Toyota’s commitment to a greener future always at the forefront of their designs, Highlander also offers a powerful, fuel efficient and low-emission hybrid engine. For BC families on-the-go, Highlander is the SUV that can do it all!
The 4Runner is a classic Toyota that’s well known for its rugged styling and superior off-roading capabilities. What many people don’t know is that this 7-seater was also designed with families in mind! The Toyota 4Runner features important details like state-of-the-art body stability and suspension design to ensure a smooth ride for all passengers no matter how rugged the terrain, and high-quality interior finishes like plush seating and Toyota Connected Services so that everyone can keep cozy and entertained during long drives. With a whopping 5000lb towing capacity and nearly 10-inches of ground clearance, this full-size SUV can take you from weekday carpool to weekend camping trip with ease.
This 8-seater from the Toyota family offers cavernous space, an incredibly comfortable ride and convenient details that will impress the entire family. The Toyota Sequoia is unique in that it looks and rides like an SUV, but offers plenty of the features you would expect from a midsize truck. With a max towing capacity of over 7000lbs, you can easily tow an RV across the Okanagan, and an available TRD off-roading package will allow you to take on rugged BC terrain with ease. All three rows provide the most spacious passenger experience of any 8-seater on the market, and luxurious details abound throughout the cabin, including rear DVD entertainment and additional USB ports in the second row. Sequoia delivers big on performance and luxury for big families!
After all these years, the word “minivan” can still manage to invoke images of a notoriously clumsy and slow-moving family ride - that’s why Toyota designed the Sienna to break all of the minivan rules! This 8-seater boasts a 296-horsepower V6 engine so you can confidently pass and merge on busy BC highways, and is the only minivan in Canada to offer all-wheel drive so that you can take on unpredictable road conditions with confidence. Sienna comes standard with Toyota’s full suite of driver-assist safety features to keep your most precious cargo safe, and added convenience features throughout the spacious cabin, such as five USB ports and a 16.4” dual BlueRay system that allows you to play two different movies at once. The Toyota Sienna is leading the new wave of modern minivans designed for busy families.
