Interior of Toyota 4Runner

Toyota has just unveiled its latest masterpiece – the 2025 Toyota 4Runner.

One fascinating feature of the car is that it has a lot of buttons inside, but – it turns out – there’s a very good reason for that!

You see, unlike many modern cars that rely heavily on touchscreens, the 2025 Toyota 4Runner is all about practicality and ease of use.

Led by Chief Interior Designer Benjamin Jimenez, the design team took a different approach.

They didn’t just follow flashy trends, instead they focused on what really matters – making the 4Runner easy and enjoyable to use in the long run.

Touchscreens were all the rage a few years ago, but now some people are of the opinion that they’re not always the best option.

They can be distracting and hard to use, especially while driving the car.

Let’s be real, who wants to fiddle around with menus when you’re driving down the road on a dark and stormy night, just wanting to turn on the heat?

That’s where the buttons come in handy, they’re instant and intuitive, perfect for quick adjustments.

Of course, buttons could also be a lot safer to use, compared with the screens.

But it’s not just about practicality, it’s also about personality.

The 4Runner’s physical buttons and dials add a unique touch to the interior, giving it a mechanical authenticity that’s hard to replicate.

And with attention to detail in the size and shape of the buttons, they’re not just functional – they’re stylish too, adding to the rugged design of this already rugged SUV.

The design process wasn’t easy.

It took a lot of sketches and revisions to get it just right.

But in the end, the result is a sharp and functional interior that sets the Toyota 4Runner apart from the competition.

With this upcoming Toyota SUV, they’ve shown that sometimes old-school buttons are the way to go.

Maybe other car manufacturers will follow suit and bring back the joy of pressing physical buttons, right?

After all, there’s nothing quite like the satisfying click of a button to make you feel like you’re in control.

Stranger things have happened.
