You must be all torso. My knees are literally touching the dash to clear my infant rear-facing seat behind me (6'2"). Maybe my carseat is bigger than average?

All car seats are different. Forward facing you’ll be fine. Rear you need to check before u buy or you may have to buy a different seat. I have a clek foonf. Leg room is not an issue (5’11”) but it barely fits rear facing because it is so tall it almost touches ceiling. How upright you like your seat affects as much or more than fore/aft for legroom as well. I like mine all the way upright so it gives me more room to move back for leg room

Well, as the short guy in this line up at 5'9" I can't add much other than we just traded our 18 Tacoma for a 19 4Runner for for this exact reason. 2 grandkids and two dogs. One dog is 33" at the withers and 115lbs dry weight. The 2019 TRD Pro fit the bill perfectly for everything. Kids love more room. We love more room, and the dogs appreciate not being left at home and the back window.

4 year old, wife, and grunt sized lab. My wife likes to pack like we are bugging out. It can get a little sketchy, but it all fits.

My 4 yr old can easily maneuver into the car seat with my driver's seat in a comfortable position.

I don’t know how that is possible. Maybe you just have short legs because I’m 6’4 and I need the driver seat all the way back... and with the seat back, no rear facing seat I ever put back there would ft. So, it would have to go on the passenger side and the front passenger seat would have to move forward which was annoying because it obstructed some of my view as a driver.

The forward facing seats are fine of course.

Ditto. I had the same experience in a 2018 Yukon as well... so not just a problem with 4Runners.

Minivans are perfect for this. My wife's 2013 Sonata (120k miles) is being replaced with a Sienna when it dies.

Wish I could figure out how to upload a picture easier (how is that so hard in 2019?) but I just went and sat in mine. Probably 4+ inches from my knees to the dash. My rear facing seat must be small or something.

I'm 6' and I have a Recaro car seat (they are huge). My 4yr old has plenty of leg room.

2019 TRD Pro - car seats a nightmare!

We currently have the Nuna Pipa Lite infant seat behind the passenger seat and itís doable but you sacrifice leg room up front. We are now looking for a convertible car seat and wanted to make sure it works behind the driverís seat bc weíre planning baby #2 and know the infant seat doesnít fit there. I tried 3 yesterday, the Clek Foonf, Britax Advocate, and the Nuna Rava. Only the Rava fit without having to move up the seat and the anti-rebound bar was about 2 inches away from the seat making it too dangerous to use. Right now weíre struggling to find a seat that will work. Iím seeing these posts from ppl with seats behind the driver and Iím curious which seats you fit there rear facing?

Diono Radian Rxt with this angle adjuster. Iím 5í10Ē but easily fit it rear facing behind the driver seat with this as it adjusts the angle but also lifts the top of the seat above the seat back of the front seats. Super secure with the 4runnerís latch system. Iíve used it in our outback before the 4runner (with my 7 year old daughter) then for 2 years with the 4runner until we flipped my son around to be forward facing.

Diono™ Angle Adjuster | buybuy BABY

Best thing with the Dionoís is how much room they leave forward facing and they work from 5-100lbs (Rear facing, convertible, booster).

Here is a pic I snapped today for another thread. We put the two next to each other (now that my kids are 4 and 7). We used to have the forward facing in the middle and rear facing on the end. I like the two here so an adult can more easily sit in the back seat (insert grandparent).

Sorry for the sideways 4runner Rocket Mode pic.
