Car and Driver

“Its angled headlamps and sharply creased bodywork give the RAV4 an assertive presence, but don’t be fooled—under the skin, it’s a practical, comfortable, and easygoing ute.”

The Toyota RAV4’s ride quality is indeed smooth and responsive, powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that generates 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque with the option of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. On top of that, you’ll be able to get up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway with the front-wheel drive setup.
