The 2013 RAV4 redesign eliminated the awkward side-hinged rear gate and replaced it with a more convenient top-hinged hatch. The spare tire was also moved off the rear gate to reside in a well beneath the cargo floor, which was previously occupied by the discontinued optional third-row seat.

"acceleration is good, handling is excellent. comfort is good. instrumentation is outdated ; speed should be digital in both mph and kph. Panel does not light up except at night with headlights on -- should be lit at all times. In an era of plug in instruments, more plug ins are required."

RON T., ON (2014 Toyota RAV4)

"There is a lack of power on the highway. It is a 2.5 liter four cylinder all-wheel-drive vehicle and with the cruise control on at highway speeds (especially at 80 mph in South Dakota - but even local 65-70 mph in Illinois) the transmission struggles to keep up on hills (even modest hills) as it downshifts down two, even three, speeds to try and maintain the set speed going uphill. I didn't like how the RPMs on the tachometer would go so high. Can't be good for gas mileage either. For an all-aro"

JOSEPH B., IL (2014 Toyota RAV4)

"Great acceleration. Ok MPG's."

CHAD Y., TX (2014 Toyota RAV4)

"Very spunky little car. Accelerates well and is fun to drive. Overall gas mileage on freeway not as good as advertised (up to 29 mpg). Usually only get around 24-25 mpg on trips."

Handling at highway speeds is exemplary. No buffeting, no crosswind sensitivity, good directional stability, good centering of steering on turns. City driving experience is ok: suspension is stiff, not harsh. Car does not rock side to side excessively as some do on rough uneven roads.

"Ride noise more than I expected, but not excessive."

Danny W., TX (2014 Toyota RAV4)

"There is plenty of room in this SUV. You can comfortably seat 5 people and the back provides ample room for suitcases, packages, anything I need to transport! A great vehicle for travel! The ride is so quiet I have at times tried to re-start because I forgot it was gong and I could not hear it! Also I have pulled right up to people whose back is turned and they have not heard me approach. The RAV4 provides a smooth & quiet ride for driver and passengers!"

"Very uncomfortable after a long ride. Back and hind end are unusually sore and ache"

Anonymous, NY (2014 Toyota RAV4)

"Driver seat comfort for long trips is excellent. I am under the national average for male height, and all controls can be located at a comfortable distance from the seat. The seat pad and back are both very good for me, I do not have to shift my position to relieve discomfort. Ride is excellent loaded or empty on highway travel at speed -- good directional stability, very well controlled suspension movement without harshness. Noise level is acceptable but not what I would call quiet. Very good resistance to buffeting and cross winds. Ride comfort in town on residential streets in moderate to poor repair is acceptable - no rocking side to side or jarring impacts when new. However, some impact noise at 36,000 miles is now bring transmitted through the unibody structure. However, the ride is too stiff for these streets -- just a small amount of progressive spring stiffness would do wonders for travel on these city streets. Exhaust noise is much too noticeable in town driving. Not noticeable at all on the highway. Lowering tire pressure from recommended to about 30 - 31 pounds helps city experience. Has no evident impact on mpg or poor tire wear. Eliminates hypersensitive road feel in town on tar strips, rough or uneven roads."
