Carol is looking for an SUV that fits easier in her garage.
Hi Joel, we have a 2012 Toyota RAV4 and recently moved into a new residence with a smaller garage.
I like the height and feel of the RAV4, but I think we are going to have to find something that isn’t so wide. Whatever we get needs to be an auto.
What do you suggest?
Thanks for your email Carol. I have had a look at dimensions of cars that might suit. There are a couple of challenges though, to go narrower, you may have to lose some height.
In saying that, and while I don’t have seat height data available to me, I don’t think there would be a lot of difference in seat height between these models and the 2012 Toyota RAV4.
You are right about the RAV4 being a quite wide vehicle – it measures in at 1845mm.
This compares with the following models in order of what I would recommend…
- Suzuki Vitara – 1775mm
- Nissan QASHQAI – 1806mm
- Mitsubishi ASX – 1810mm
- Honda HR-V – 1772mm
- Holden Trax – 1776mm
All of the above models are available with automatic transmissions. I hope that helps.
