5 Best Toyota Cars for Adventure

5 Best Toyota Cars for Adventure

Summer is the time to head out onto the open road and see what adventures the Canadian countryside has in store. Whether you're planning a long road trip or a weekend exploring your local area, you need the right car to make the most of the experience. Here are five of the best 2021 summer Toyota cars to enjoy in the warmer weather ahead.


1) Toyota RAV4

Starting at the smaller end of the Toyota SUV scale, the RAV4 is a two-row design that seats up to five in comfort. But despite its compact size, it packs plenty of power under the hood. A 2.5L four-cylinder gas engine pushes out a healthy 203 horsepower and 184lb-ft of torque, enough to handle any terrain you throw this zippy model over.


What's more, the RAV4 adds advanced infotainment and safety technology to the mix to provide a level of comfort and confidence that can't be beaten.


2) Toyota Highlander


Moving up a level, the Toyota Highlander seats up to eight passengers across its three rows, and the powertrain boasts increased performance to match the extra size. Fully 296 horsepower pours out from a 3.5L V6 gas engine, passed to the tarmac or trail via an eight-speed automatic transmission and either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Advanced safety is a particularly strong point of the Highlander, with standard systems including semi-autonomous emergency steering and automatic emergency braking to keep you safe however far from home you travel.


3) Toyota Tacoma

But summer adventures don't only need to be enjoyed in an SUV. The Toyota Tacoma is a mid-size truck seating up to five in its spacious cabin, with a powertrain providing up to 278 horsepower and 265lb-ft of torque to handle both highway cruising and off-road adventuring with ease.


And if you're planning to venture far away from the pavement, you can choose from a range of specialist off-road options including hill descent control, skid plates, and trail-tuned suspension with extra lift.


4) Toyota 4Runner


Returning to the SUV format, the Toyota 4Runner is a mid-size model that neatly straddles the gap between weekday family comfort and off-road weekend exploits. Most importantly for summer adventures, the 4Runner includes a huge amount of cargo space so you can carry everything you need for your vacation.

But the 4Runner also has impressive sports and off-road capabilities, with optional Crawl Control and Multi-Terrain Selec functions to guide your car smoothly across even the most difficult of surfaces.


5) Toyota Sequoia


2021 Toyota Sequoia


Lastly, the Toyota Sequoia tops the line of large SUVs in the company's range. Even with its capacity of eight passengers fully filled, it still provides 538 litres of cargo storage, ideal for larger families with plenty of gear to stow. Add an optional roof rack for kayaks and a great towing capacity for larger boats or dirt bikes, and the Sequoia will happily travel with you deep into the wilderness.
