What Owners Say

"Very smooth acceleration. Easy to steer and sharp turning radius."

Anonymous, FL (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"I've always been impressed with the handling and acceleration of both the old (2007) RAV4 and the new (2016) RAV4. When I go from driving my Tacoma to driving the RAV4, I have to go easy on the gas pedal or I might give my passengers whiplash."

Anonymous, NY (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"We got the top of the line "Limited" with the best technology package. The Limited has settings for economy and "sport." You can really feel the difference in sport mode which is great for highway driving. While you can drive in the economy mode full time, I love the sport option. The ride is quiet and handling is great."

Robert P., MA (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"I keep the mode switch in economy, so I've never tried the sport mode. I don't believe I'd have much use for it. Even with AWD, handling is effortless."

Brian W., PA (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"Acceleration is OK and what is expected for a 4 cylinder engine. The handling is very good and responsive, especially for a small SUV."

Mark L., OH (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"Good on snowy roads"

"The RAV4 handles good for an SUV. The radar controlled cruise is one of my favorite features, just set it at the speed limit and then I put the actual miles per gallon on the information center between the dials. When the mileage increases, I change lanes."

"Poor acceleration, and dose not handle well in curves or moving through traffic."

Dean S., CA (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"My wife's only concern about moving from a Prius to the much larger RAV 4 was how well she could handle it. From the outset, she's felt safer and in better control than she had in the Prius. She loves its power and handling, especially in traffic as well as all its new safety features, including the 360 degree camera system, with its comprehensive warning systems."

Anonymous, NB (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"The RAV4 handles nicely in virtually all traffic situations. The acceleration is relatively smooth and gets up to speed in less than 8 to 10 seconds. Despite its size and rugged appearance, the car handles well and can be nimble if needed."

Anonymous, NH (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"Recently drove in mountains with switchbacks and 7 -8% grades. We were very impressed with how the Rav4 handled."

JUDITH I., IL (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"It seems to be more "peppy" and more quiet than the last RAV4 we tried prior to leasing a 2014 Camry (which we turned in to purchase the RAV4). It also seems to handle the road better than that previous model."

JOHN W., RI (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"automatic transmission shifts quickly and is responsive. Well paired with the 4cyl motor. The frame seems rigid which helps handling and bump absorption in combination with the suspension. The rav4 handles well even when fully loaded with passengers and luggage."

ANDREW S., NY (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"My only complaint is the fact that the automatic transmission hesitates a bit when I step on the gas. I am partial to the stick shift which responds immediately. However, it is hard to find stick shifts these days."

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Good. I work with little dogs and made a dog playpen in the trunk space. A sheepskin pad and the net makes it safe and comfortable."

Anonymous, CA (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"The interior is classy looking but they could improve on the cup holders and compartments and also door compartments need cup holders and more room.."

VIRGINIA M., CA (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"What I love most about the new RAV4 is the safety features. I got the tech pkg and the backup camera along with the radar cruise control make it one if the safest vehicles around. It slowes you down when you set a speed and a,eats you when there is a need to stop due to an possible crash. I feel very safe in the new RAV4 Plus...It is so pretty. Great Red colour, body style is very stylist. Love the new headlights. Overall very happy with my purchase. I just wish I had got the hybrid as I"

"I do not like the rear door. My last RAV4 opened to the side. This one opens from the bottom up, and dirt accumulates on the rear window because of the lip over the top of the door. It also drips on me in the rain when I am loading and unloading."

"I think it has the "cleanest" lines of the models available in its segment. I'm glad Tpyota dropped the spare tire storage area from the rear door."

JOHN W., RI (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"Every time I see the RAV4 in this blue electric storm color we chose I think it really works. A fine looking car and in my opinion the best looking in its class."

PHILIP M., BC (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"A little dated"

RAYMOND M., FL (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"The 1015 model has better exterior styling I think. The interior is all black except in 3 paint colors in the LTD models The silver dash trim reflects badly in the driver side and passenger side mirrors and also in the front window on sunny days. We test drove it on a cloudy day, other wise we might not have bought it"

DAVID M., BC (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"A wide view through the windshield"

NEIL B., NY (2016 Toyota RAV4)

"Don't care for the fake leatherette as only option for seats.Wish the driving modes "eco, sport" were lighted so you can see find them in dark. wish labels were larger print/icons fore readability. wish speed was viewable in digital format because the speed indicator is hard to read and inconsistent with US speed limits of 55, 65, etc. Wish glove compartment was lockable, and that the area under the rear storage was lockable. Wish there was a place for purses."
