Toyota RAV4 Overview

The RAV4 uses an energetic 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a smooth six-speed automatic that returned 24-mpg overall in tests of an AWD version. Handling is quite nimble and very secure. Though the ride is firm and well-controlled, it may not be smooth enough for some. Inside the somewhat loud cabin are clear, intuitive controls and decent fit and finish. The XLE is a good value with the auto climate control and sunroof, but the seats lack adjustable lumbar support. Access is very easy, and the rear seat is roomy. A rear-view camera is standard. An electric version is available in a few states. The RAV4 scores Good in its latest IIHS small-overlap crash test. A hybrid model joins the line for 2016.
