Description:
Pros:
  • Spacious and comfortable cabin
  • Strong and efficient V6 engine
  • Car-like handling
  • Generous amount of cargo space with flat loading surface
Cons:
  • Low-rent interior feel
  • Third row option is almost useless
  • Awkward rear cargo door
Ruling: The Toyota RAV4 is one of the most practical and easy to drive crossovers on the market today. Shoppers looking for a great value will find that the RAV4 offers a good set of useful features, respectable fuel economy, and plenty of room for passengers or cargo.

The RAV4 comes in a base model, performance-oriented Sport and top-of-the-line Limited. All-wheel drive is optional. For 2011, the RAV4 sees few changes.

CarReview's opinion of the Toyota RAV4

Highs
  • Toyota quality and ergonomics
  • Lots of space for people and their stuff
  • Very good fuel economy for an SUV
  • Star Safety System™
Lows
  • 4-speed automatic transmission
  • Optional side-step rails only work for small feet or loading the roof rack
  • Standard audio system is weak sounding

Verdict: What we like most about the RAV4 is its refined, car-like demeanor. Available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, the RAV4 isn’t exactly ready to conquer serious off-road trails, but its ground clearance and all-wheel drive allows it to tackle nasty weather with ease. The excellent fuel economy of the four-cylinder, decent driving dynamics, and generous interior space put the RAV4 at the head of its class.
