In addition, legroom and cargo space in sedans don't exactly provide a lot of comfort when you are traveling far. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 on the other hand provides more than enough room for a comfortable ride. Folding the rear seat down will give you 73.4 cubic-feet of space for cargo and 38.4 cubic-feet of space when the seats are not folded down as reported. Clearly, sedans cannot hold a candle against SUVs in this regard.
