Small on the outside (easy to park, squeeze between things), big enough on the inside (comfortable to drive, 2- person sleep, carry lots of stuff). I'm not an off-road expert but it takes as much as I can. Gas mileage as good as my last sedan. I have no regrets.
Built solid. Excellent IIHS safety ratings.
Toyota doesn't make these cars with every possible combination of ingredients. I wasn't able to get both 4wd and side curtain airbags; I had to make a choice.
