Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander than in the Land Rover LR2, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Toyota Highlander will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover LR2.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).
