Toyota SUV size guide

Toyota now has the most comprehensive, multi-segment line-up of SUV models that it has ever offered in the UK. The line-up already consists of Yaris Cross, Toyota C-HR, RAV4 and Highlander, but Aygo X, Corolla Cross and bZ4X will be joining the party throughout 2022. Read on below for our Toyota SUV size guide.

C-HR

While it is said that variety is the spice of life, such a broad choice could potentially lead to a little uncertainty over which of the six distinct models will best suit your needs. While their names offer no clear indication of relative size, we realise that an understanding of their basic dimensions is the first step in determining which is the best possible fit for your lifestyle, your family, even your garage.

We therefore hope the following information is helpful in understanding the comparative size of each model.

Toyota SUV size guide: dimensions

MODEL LENGTH WIDTH HEIGHT WHEELBASE LUGGAGE 
Aygo X 3700mm 1740mm 1525mm 2430mm 231 to 829 litres 
Yaris Cross 4180mm 1765mm 1560mm 2560mm 397 to 1097 litres 
Toyota C-HR 4395mm 1795mm 1555mm 2640mm 377 to 1160 litres 
Corolla Cross4460mm 1825mm 1620mm 2640mm TBC 
RAV4 4600mm 1855mm 1685mm 2690mm 580 to 1690 litres 
bZ4X4690mm1860mm1650mm2850mmTBC
Highlander 4966mm 1930mm  1755mm 2850mm 332 to 1909 litres 

Based on our new GA-B compact car platform, the Yaris Cross (below) is currently positioned as the smallest and most urban-friendly model in our SUV range. Moving up in size, the dynamic Toyota C-HR is strategically adapted from the GA-C platform, which is also used in the slightly larger Corolla Cross.

Both the RAV4 and new Highlander are built on the same adaptable GA-K platform, although due to its seven-seat capability the latter model is significantly larger in every major dimension.

Our first full production all-electric model, bZ4X, will be the first model to be built on our new, dedicated BEV platform. Known as e-TNGA, it incorporates the battery as a structural member of the chassis – a feature that creates high body rigidity, a low centre of gravity, and excellent front/rear weight distribution.

This size hierarchy is also reflected in the engines installed in each model. The Yaris Cross is equipped with a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol-electric hybrid engine, and the Toyota C-HR can be specified with either a 1.8- or 2.0-litre four-cylinder hybrid powertrain. Only the latter powertrain is available in the Corolla Cross.

Meanwhile, the RAV4 and Highlander (below) share the same 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, albeit with the hybrid system configured to produce a combined output of between 215 and 241bhp, depending on the model.

But aren’t there are two more SUVs?

It’s true, we omitted a couple of iconic models from the above table. Although the Hilux and Land Cruiser (below) are officially categorised as sports utility vehicles, they are very different propositions from our seven comparison SUVs above.

Paws for Conservation - Land Cruiser

They feature separate body-on-frame construction, turbo-diesel engines and all-mechanical four-wheel-drive systems. In addition, both possess a strong off-road and commercial vehicle heritage. All of which places them in a different and less immediately comparable area of the SUV segment.

MODEL LENGTH WIDTH HEIGHT WHEELBASE LUGGAGE 
Hilux Double Cab 5330mm 1855mm 1815mm 3085mm N/A 
Land Cruiser SWB 4395mm 1885mm 1830mm 2450mm 380 to 720 litres 
Land Cruiser LWB 4840mm 1885mm 1845mm 2790mm 640 to 1270 litres

  1. Dear Team,

    Could you please advise when it will available in the UK and also an indication of price range.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards

  2. I’ve notice the widths of cars are quite wide. I have a C-HR and it barely fits in the parking bays in my development that was only 20 year ago. The builders said they followed UK building requirements. Does Toyota refer to local parking requirements when designing cars?

    1. Hi Bob,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Please could you confirm what local parking requirements you are referring to?
      Thanks.

  3. Yes. The CHR is 1795 mm wide and once driven into my garage I can barely get out of the Drivers door ( with the Passenger side right up close to the wall .

    If only you could trim the width down or make the length of the Drivers Door shorter ? on the next upgrade .

    Its not just yourselves that have been widening cars over the years , other manufacturers have been doing it without thought for parking bays or garages .
