Amongst the best of the portable SUVs, the RAV4 stands out at convenience and also convenience of use. Entering and also out of the motorist's seat is simple. It can relocate lots of people or great deals of equipment on a minute's notification. And also it comes common with a long list of safety and security tools. We like the five-passenger arrangement.
We found the RAV4 smooth and also steady underway. The Sporting activity version has a more challenging flight due to its suspension tuning. RAV4's offered four-wheel-drive system works quite possibly in icy problems along with on rain-soaked roadways.
The four-cylinder is responsive and also obtains an EPA-estimated 21/27 mpg when geared up with 4x4, slightly far better with two-wheel drive. Bought with the optional V6, the RAV4 actually runs, boasting 269 horse power.

Safety functions on all RAV4s consist of dual-stage frontal air bags, side-impact air bags, and also side-curtain air bags. Energetic headrests on the vehicle driver as well as front traveler seats go up as well as ahead in particular rear-end collisions to help lower the range in between the occupant's head and also the headrest. Front seatbelts incorporate pre-tensioners and also force limiters. Additionally conventional are LATCH child safety seat supports, anti-skid brakes (ABS) with brake assist as well as digital brake-force circulation (EBD), digital security control (VSC), traction control (TRAC), and also a tire-pressure screen.
The RAV4 looks like various other modern Toyotas, including an aerodynamically reliable ovoid profile purposefully relieved by sharp personality lines. A coefficient of drag of 0.33 is among the best in its segment and also a major consider reducing wind noise and optimizing fuel economy.
The RAV4's truck-like front end is tautly composed. Aesthetically, the fenders are different components from the engine bay, a scenario stressed by a tight rectangular grille that seems to rest comfortably atop the broader bumper slits below. Fronts lights are small and also concentrated. Upright brake scoops, lined with black ribs, bite right into the bumper beneath the headlights-- fog lights situated right into these scoops on Sport models.
Limiteds take a look all their very own, with a solitary, deep, trapezoidal grille opening bolding bisected by a body-color horizontal bar with a large, chrome Toyota World-T badge at its facility. A pseudo-skid plate concludes from the bottom, leaving no area for additional reduced air intakes. Tubular nacelles sustaining the haze lights change the brake scoops of base and Sporting activity designs.
Alloy wheels have five spokes on Sporting activity, six on Limited. A broad track gives the RAV4 a strong stance aesthetically, while withstanding rollovers in emergency maneuvers.
The profile is elongate, a mix of blocky and oval, the far better to suit that third-row seat. An understated indent leave the bottom of the RAV4's doors, softening the aesthetic impact of mass. Wheel arcs mix smoothly right into the fenders.
In back, a single-piece rear bumper supports the swing-open tailgate, which, sadly, still opens up from the left side, so you need to walk it when unloading curbside below in The U.S.A.. Taillights are located high up on the back fenders. The spare tire screws right into a recess offset to the right in the swing-gate, and also doesn't dip below the bumper line. The rear certificate plate, penetrated the lower left side of the swing-gate below the handle, visually stabilizes the spare. The Sporting activity version's spoiler hangs notably off the top edge of the roofing.
The Sporting activity Look Bundle removes the spare totally, as well as focuses the license plate up high. A lump low down on the tailgate fills out the step in the conventional bumper when the tailgate is closed. A take care of on the left side still betrays the gate's swing-open style, yet in spite of this the general appearance with the Sport Appearance Bundle is extremely a lot more car-like, much more station wagon than SUV.
Inside, the RAV4 is useful, if a bit eccentric in vogue. Positioning of the assesses will know to anyone who has owned a previous RAV4. The placement and also function of the controls populating the center pile is excellent; that additionally applies to the setup of the hand brake as well as the change bar. The dash is greatly split by a straight indentation running the width of the cars and truck. Regarding the only plus we discovered in this garish feature is a bi-level glove box, with an upper container covered by a pulling back cover as well as a lower bin fitted with a traditional, bottom-hinged cover.
Products are top quality. Fit and also surface is Toyota grade, which indicates excellent. All 3 trim degrees share the same concept, with contrasting but complementary colors and also cleaned metal trim components around the stereo and environment controls, surrounding the change entrance and also swooping around the door manages. The standard side-curtain air bags allow a traveler aid hold, which folds up below the headliner over each door.
The front seats are supportive but not excessively solid, with small boosts and respectable upper leg support. The tilt-and-telescope wheel and height-adjustable vehicle driver's seat enable almost any dimension driver to locate a comfortable fit, and without the included complexity (and also expense) of adjustable pedals. The reasonably high sitting position, reduced cowl as well as sloping hood make for good exposure to the front. The lengthy side home windows reduce lane monitoring. Totally pulling back head restrictions in the second row as well as optional 3rd row seats enhance the checking out variety through the inside mirror.
The second-row seats are much less cushioned than the front seats, without strengthens. It's no surprise, truly, considereding as how that seat has to fit three people in a pinch.
The optional third row seats barely qualify thus, with flat bottoms as well as similarly featureless backs and head restraints. Access to that back row, by folding and tilting the outboard second-row seats, is not specifically simple, but it isn't as much of a stress or as uncomfortable as in some bigger, full-sized sport energies.
Storage areas abound. Past the handwear cover box, the doors have repaired plastic map pockets, the rear of the front seatbacks wear net bags, as well as a total of 10 cup owners are positioned about the cabin. When the third-row seats aren't purchased, a deep freight location waits for beneath a water-repellant, foldable deck board.
